Gotta figure the Cubs are salivating over the prospect of having Wheeler. To me right now Wheeler is our best starter. He and Bartolo anchoring the rotation.


I would hate to see him traded.

@rico The only player that I would trade Wheeler for is Addison Russel. He is a ss and rated the 3rd best prospect in MLB.  He is the kid the Cubs just got from Oakland in Jeff Samardzija trade. He is power hitting great defensive ss. COmpared to Andrelton Fitzsimmons. Much harder to find a great ss today than a pitcher. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Addison_Russell_%28baseball%29

@2ndhalffun Agreed if I were the Mets I'd be trying to package a deal with Wheeler, Montero, and Mats/Fullmer for Russell and Solar.
