2017-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)As a Mets fan myself, I begin to wonder if fellow fans of the team overestimate the strength of the starting rotation for 2017. While I like the guys we have, I'm wondering if it might be a bit overrated due to its high risk of injury. Most of the pitchers do not have a very good health history, and Gsellman aside, I feel the Mets rotation depth is quite shallow. Also I have my doubts on Lugo . I get they are pitchers, and they will break, but maybe we should all calm it down just a little bit. What are your thoughts?
(Tom from Long Island)
Nope. You are absolutely right. Losing out on Colon may end up costing them, since they can't afford to buy those quality of innings elsewhere and they are betting on fullish seasons from Harvey (TOS), Matz (gigantic bone spur), deGrom (nerve cleanup), Syndergaard (throws really hard and has had multiple arm scares), and Gsellman (who obviously I love, but hasn't pitched a full major league season yet, and had offseason surgery). Behind that is Lugo and Ynoa, and literally no one else. They might bring back Duane Below. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2012-01-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Now that Detroit has blown a gigantic wad on Prince Fielder, are they going to rely on Jacob Turner as their 5th starter? I don't see anyone else decent who is around to back him up. . . And, if Cabrera is really going to play 3B and Raburn 2B, who will DH? Is Andy Dirks a leading LF option with Delmon Young DHing?
(hotstatrat from Daydreamland)
They'll fall back on Adam Wilk or Duane Below if Turner isn't ready right off... Dirks should get a lot of time in left field, assuming Leyland doesn't develop an unhealthy Clete Thomas fixation. (Steven Goldman)
