I am just sitting at home today watching the snow fall, and glad I'm not at work today. As I am sitting here typing this on my iPhone, my mind has been imagining the future.
Earlier I read a story on Harvey., and there was a line in there about how the relationship between Harvey and Wheeler was growing. Harvey said that when Wheeler gets here they'll push each other.
So, I just daydreamed about how, by the middle/end of 2014, we may well see Harvey, Wheeler, Neise and Syndergaard, all sitting next to each other on the bench. All the comradery that goes with young starters/players growing up together.
Goooden/Darling/Sid/Aggie, Hudson/Mulder/Zito, Glavine/Smoltz/MadDog... This is the type of setup I always dreamed of seeing in Queens again.
I know they are all still pups, and may never be as good as the above groups were. Some could turn out to be flops. But I can't help but daydream about the possilities, and the cameraman getting a shot of that Mets bench, and showing Wheeler/Harvey/Neise/Syndergarrd all sitting together in the bench talking, laughing, giving hotfoots, and the TV announcer saying " there's the best young pitching staff in the league folks"
As Roy Hobbs (Robert Redford) said in 'The Natural' ... "God, I love baseball."
Lets hope it pans out.
Even though I still see 2013 as another transitional season, I am stoked for this season. I am excited to see Harvey, Wheeler, TDa, Neise, Ike and others. Excited for what could be for this franchise if some of these kids become what we hope.
My god, it baseball, it is spring soon, how can anyone be miserable about that at this point.

You sir are correct, and yet ...
Yes, I love Johan. He is a real "pitcher", and not just a "thrower".
Give us a good half, and get us a real nice OF prospect in July.
Get real I wasn't saying that is the only thing they have ever done. So don't start jumping on me with all the explanations of when they could have cut payroll and didn't. It is getting pretty tired on here too.
But I don't think the owners would be willing to buy a prospect at the cost of $12.5 million dollars at that point. They will most likely take what ever they can get while having the other team take on as much of his payroll as they are willing to do.
