Holiday Greetings to all! Here is my Holiday Rant!
The New York Mets have done nothing but trade the NL Cy-Young R.A. Dickey, which I thought was a much needed move here. We got back the possible Piazza-ish catcher the Mets have lacked over the years.. The Mets also have a immediate future of Wheeler, Niese, Harvey, Syndergaard, Gee which looks good. But now the Mets in 2013 need at least a fifth starter...
The trade of Syndergaard looks good even though made inappropriate comments, his talent much warranted..
The towering Syndergaard spent all of 2012 in A-level Lansing, striking
out 122 batters in 103 innings while racking up an eye-opening 1.08
WHIP. The move to New York means he's no longer a sleeper candidate, and
now that he's an NL talent, he's even more appealing.
imposing righthander arrives, it'll be thanks to the plus command he
shows with his decent 94mph fastball and near-plus curve. Of course, as
with any young pitcher, it'll be the quality of his developing change
that will determine whether he's an ace or a middle-of-the-pack starter a
year or two from now. He should see AA action in 2013.
But when are the Mets going to make a statement move towards 2013 besides locking up David Wright, which was the right (no pun intended) thing to do..
