Last time Sandy traded a slugger for prospects, Blake Stein was the centerpiece of the transaction. Eric Ludwick and T. J. Mathews were just mid-level throw-ins. As we all know, Blake Stein as a major flop. This is indicative of Sandy's scouting ability. He is a poor judge of talent, and how well raw talent will translate into major-league success. The outcome of the Beltran for Wheeler trade will likely be no different. Yes, my fellow Met fans, Zach Wheeler = Blake Stein. Please don't hate the messenger.
Oh, and BTW, your boy Cano has a higher career batting average and slugging percentage than David Wright does on the road.

Do you have a clue? Players have been taking drugs of all kinds since the beginning of the game. For instance, Some players in the early 1900s drank way too many Coka Colas, back when it was made with cocaine. Didn't Bouton write a book about players taking "greenies"? Nice try, but your statement is not in the least bit realistic.
Have you even seen him pitch?
You're a fukcing idiot.
You must not be reading at all. I said I am not opining on Wheeler as I am unqualified to do so. I am only qualified to value distressed debt.
However, no one can argue that alderson has a history of making bad trades.
