Shifting around the league

If you’ve been around the site long enough, you know that I’m not a fan of the shift in baseball. I’m not so much against it because it takes hits away, but more so that it effects left handed hitters at a far greater rate than it could ever effect right handed hitters. Baseball Prospectus has up an interesting article on the shift and how some teams are dealing with it this...

Wheeler Must-See Watch In 2015

Of all the Mets, Zack Wheeler is the one I am most curious to watch this summer. Wheeler made a strong first impression in 2013 and improved last season to 11-11 with a 3.54 ERA while working 185.1 innings in 32 starts. WHEELER: High expectations. (AP) His durability last year indicates 200-plus innings is within reach. We don’t know Wheeler’s ceiling, but our expectations...

The Mets would be crazy to trade Zack Wheeler

As an active reader of what is probably way too many Mets blogs, message boards, ESPN Insider articles, I’ve noticed that there seems to be a feeling that the Mets should considering dangling Zack Wheeler in a trade for a premium bat.
