Stanton will never be a Met.
Unless he changes his name to Met Stanton.
no no no no no
I like Niese as much as the next guy but you would get a quick hang up from the Marlins...a division rival would trade arguably the best power hitter in the entire game for a middle of the rotation type starter.
I like Niese a lot but he is a good #3 on most teams.
"arguably the best power hitter in the entire game for a middle of the rotation type starter.

did you even read my post?
yes I did, and if Daniel Murphy had a season where he it 25 HR's 100 RBI and 330 average that doesn't mean we could trade him for stanton.
I think people know Niese is a good young pitcher but Stanton is a once ina decade type power hitter im assuing Harve yor wheeler would be part of any package to acquire that type of bat
once in a decade power hitter?
That is just 10....don't really think the "once in a decade" thing applies
You called Niese a #3 pitcher despite me giving an assumed season of 18-6 with a sub 2.70 ERA. What pitcher in baseball pitches with those numbers who is a #3? Right now Niese is on the #2/3 leaning closer to a 2. If he has a similar season this year as he did last, then he is a definite good #2. If he pitches to the numbers I listed, then he is an ace.
"Niese had a pretty good year, but he also had a lot of starts where he was taken out after six innings." I don't think he can have the kind of year that you are talking pitching this way."
He still needs to improve on consistency but has improved a lot since they year before this season. Pitching 6 innings is still pretty decent though. I don't think Niese will put up the stats I gave, it was more of a hypothetical. With that being said, if Niese took a big step forward AGAIN and did post a sub 3.00 ERA with 17 or so wins, I wouldn't be surprised.
