Well have to agree to disagree then. I recall many people saying the same thing about Beltran going into his walk year.
I think if Johan rolls into with a 3.00 ERA, looking healthy, and thr Mets eat a big chunk of his remaing contract, then contenders will have serious interest in a competive veteran lefty like this. As we have seen in the past, it only takes one team hungry enough.
Maybe it won't be another Wheeler, but then again, maybe it will.
Wont hurt it at all, He is not going to pitch 215 innings, That is a whole lot of pitching, If he makes 30 starts which is a complete season he would need to go 7 Plus every game, If he pitches 33 games which is slightly better then every fifth game he would need to go 6 and a half innings everytime out.
He most likely will go 6 on average and if he got 33 starts that is still just 198 innings.
