    I dont think anyone is whining per se. I just think they don't like the fact that he's been so good for a division rival and the only reason they let him walk is because the Wilpons are cheap.

    But you're right, the offense is the biggest bugaboo. They need to be cognizant of what Syndergaard and Carrasco's timelines are as well.
    Id trade Stroman for Wheeler straight up. Ill give you that.

    Hes been amazing. The splitter hes developed has been a true game-changer for him. Its given him another swing and miss pitch and GB pitch. Hitters are hitting .186/.200/.256 (30 wRC+) against his splitter and he has a 19% SwStr% with the pitch. As a result, his SwStr% has risen to 12% this season which is now above league average. His career SwStr% before this season was 9-10%.

    Id still be surprised if Stroman gets Wheelers contract, despite his performance. I hope we bring him back, he belongs in NYC.
