We're not trading Matz at the waiver deadline. If we do anything, it'll be after we hire our new GM and he/she picks our staff. I'm fine with that. I also happen to think that means that we'll most likely keep our four starters together to start next season.
Like I said already, the Mets still truly feel that this team can contend next year with this team. Who needs defense, a bullpen, hitters or speed. If I would've told you that we'd be competing with the Marlins for last place this year, I would've been laughed at and ridiculed yet that's where we are.
What's going to improve next year? Are we going to expect two rookies in McNeil and Alsono solving our issues?
Is Bruce going to remember how to hit? Hey don't forget, he might block Alonso at first.
Will we ever have a catcher that can actually help our pitching staff?
While on paper a pitching staff of deGrom, Thor, Wheeler, Matz is indeed impressive, it's a fool me again moment.
