Survived the offseason and reported to camp with a full beard, which may be tired but it sure beats a return of his merkin.



What's the story? Does he break camp in the bullpen? In the rotation? In the employ of another team? QUESTIONS!!

I don't think that he'll make it to the trade deadline.

Toughest one to predict. I'm going to say he starts in the bullpen and gets starts if Niese gets hurt in the early part of the season -- before the point where they'd bring up Thor to delay his service time.

Relief serves his third-time-through-the-lineup-fading butt pretty well. Then, come July, gone baby gone. To... [rubs temples, squint all exert-y like] the AL West, but not Texas.

The hardest guy to predict. My money is on him being dealt late spring, but a lot of things can happen.

I think he vanishes as soon as another team acknowledges they have a starting pitching crisis. Cincy? Pittsburgh? Chisox?? Can't figure that part out.

WHEREVER, he's completely Gee-like for them, you know exactly what I mean.

Thing is, if the Phillies have to wait out the market on Cole Hamels (though I do disagree that his current four year/$96 million price tag is such a bargain), then how long must the Mets wait before reality strikes some pitching-hungry GM?

It's a strange turnabout, but it seems everybody thinks they have enough pitching, and most everybody is shopping for batsmen.

Except the Yankees, who must know they don't have enough of either.

He's the best 6th starter in the majors and an excellent insurance policy.

The Mets can't afford insurance.

When they start playing exhibition games, you probably won't have enough fingers on your hands to count the number of pitchers that are gonna go down with injuries.

one of which may even be on the Mets! i like that the Mets held onto Gee, you cant have too many pitching options. if a deal had shown up for a good bat then thats fine, but there was no reason to trade him away for an interchangeable bullpen arm or something like that.

Not really sure. I like Gee actually, I think he's one of those guys that gets better with more reps, hits his spots better and what not. If he does in fact start in the bullpen and Collins gets him enough reps I think he can do very good things.

Let's call him 1999 Pat Mahomes or something. 85 IP, 62Ks, 3.2 ERA, 3 spot starts.

Of course, he could be traded before I finish this sentence, or not at all.

You could be right. I wasn't advocating for anything, one way or the other. I simply wrote what I think's likely to happen, and why.

On the Mets in a number of roles.

4-4, 3.80.
But I have no idea in which role he'll get those numbers.

Traded to AL West team during the spring when someone's
arm out there falls off for the season.

Maybe sooner than that. Just read that Yu Darvish had an arm injury. I'm wondering if the Mets/Texas talks have heated up.

It seems he may have broken Ed Lynch's record, spending the longest time in the role of the Not-Really-Part-of-the-Plan-But-He-Pitched-His-Way-Into-the-Rotation-So-We'll-Leave-Him-There-Until-We-Get-Everybody-Healthy-and-In-Place-or-He-Screws-It-Up Guy.

Other candidates: Jae-Weong Seo, John Maine.

Actually Rick Reed may be the patron saint of these guys, but he got a two-year contract at some point, I think, so he graduated off that list.

Played the oh-i-just-dont-care-anymore card when informed that they were scrapping the 6 man for reals. Thinks it hurts his trade value as though being the 6th best starter and 1st least reliable of 6 didn't have anything to do with it.

Quick triggers don't kill trade value; people do.

He really shouldn't care about his trade value. If he's sent to another team, what difference does it make to him what kind of return the Mets get?
