I wanted C Young gone this Thursday and he starts hitting hrs  afraid Mets may give him a three yr deal .

Wheeler will grow from this. He will learn a lot more from a nasty loss than an easy win right now. As he develops he will remember games like this as a rare occurance and nothing more.

But damn, that A's team can hammer the ball.

@Jay Morgenthal its only been a year since he's come up but he doesn't seem to be what they thought he would be. also seems like he can't take the pressure in new york

Pressure in NY? There were 2 drunks and a birthday party at the stadium tonight..maybe he gets lonely out there with no fans?

@cyrus @Jay Morgenthal you're all too impatient, Wheeler has a better era than Scherzer in first 32 starts... i wouldn't say Scherzer wasn't able to take the pressure of arizona

But yea look at some of his stats. He had more 4-hit games in his career than 2-strikeout games. Absurd

@Jake Polom no its cool, i can take the banter... but yeah, that was sad, salivary cancer due to chewing tobacco in his playing career

@Jake Polom very sad but he was one of the greats, on and off the field

Yea look them up. They're ridiculous. The most strikeouts he ever had in a season was 40! Some players do that in a month
