Did Zack Wheeler hurt the Mets by not completing seven innings?

The most interesting players are the ones where smart people can disagree. Perhaps no player on the current Mets fits this bill better than Zack Wheeler. On one hand, you have people who wonder what the fuss is since he consistently wields high pitch counts and has shown almost no ability to complete seven innings. On the other hand, you have people who wish he went deeper into...

Will the Mets compete in 2015?

At a recent charity event, 24 year-old Zack Wheeler expressed his optimism for this upcoming New York Mets season. Wheeler explained that, “You look at our staff, and if you’re human, you can only be like, ‘Yeah, they’re going to make it to the playoffs here soon. They need a couple of bats and (will) be ready to go.’ ” It’s hard to argue with that statement. Any team...

Wheeler’s words a change from normal offseason noise

When was the last time a Met player came out and confidently predicted success for the upcoming season?  Was it “Team to beat”-gate from 2007/2008 with Jimmy Rollins and Carlos Beltran?  Really since then the only pre-season choruses sung by Mets players have been about “taking some people by surprise,” which is code for “we’re not that good, but maybe we’ll get lucky”...

Harvey Will Give Mets The Best 1-2-3 Punch In Baseball

Timing is everything.  Matt Harvey is returning to lead the New York Mets rotation, now bolstered with a matured Zack Wheeler and 2014 NL ROY winner Jacob deGrom.  All three have experienced their own setbacks this year, but their talent is in another stratosphere and they’ve each grown from their own experiences.  There may be a lot of question marks still surrounding the...

An Incremental Upgrade At Shortstop Is Not Worth Trading Syndergaard or Wheeler

One shortstop that seems to be high on many a Met fans’ lists is Chicago’s Alexei Ramirez, and it’s been widely reported that the Mets have already been in contact with the White Sox for their All Star infielder. Ramirez batted .273 last season with a .305 on-base, 15 home runs and 74 RBI. He’s an excellent defender as well, but are you willing to give up Noah Syndergaard...

Mets 360 Projection Review: Zack Wheeler

One of the pleasant surprises this year was the emergence of the Mets young starting pitching.  While Jacob deGrom got most of the headlines, Zack Wheeler took several steps forward and looked fantastic, especially after the last dozen or so starts. We saw him taking steps forward, but not necessarily as many as he ended up taking.  Here is our official projection: IP: 179 ERA...

Wheeler Impresses Again, Might Be Wise To Lock Him Up

On Sunday, Zack Wheeler took the hill and gave the Mets a superb effort, limiting the Reds to just one run in 6.0 innings of work and striking out six along the way. It was by all accounts another great effort from the second year pitcher as he earned his 10th win. The one part of Wheeler’s game that needs to be fine tuned is his efficiency. He’s letting big innings chip away...

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. The biggest name being thrown around right now is Starlin Castro, mainly because the Cubs suddenly became loaded at SS with the addition of Addison...
