As a potential fifth starter? No-brainer.

Hello, everyone BTW. Took me a few months to get posting privileges. I look forward to many fortuitous years of shitposting.

I'd be down for this. We badly need a starter, not only to replace Vargas but to hope to keep Lugo in the pen too.

They likely have 1 yr offers out on multiple guys already. Allegedly, Gio was offered 1 yr so it'd be surprising if they havent offered other starters 1 yr deals. I am hoping for Hellickson or Buchholz personally. In that order. I slightly prefer Hellickson because he has been more reliable health wise & has had success in the NL East as a flyball pitcher in a bandbox.

In a perfect world where our owners' have common sense & want to win & understand building a champion pays for itself we would be signing Dallas Keuchel. He would give us another guy we can count on to give us 200 innings along with deGrom. Hopefully this is the yr Syndergaard & Wheeler finally put it all together for an entire yr. Matz too but even if Keuchel is a 3.75 era guy from here on out his 200 innings would bring a lot of value & with Wheeler being a FA next yr & Vargas having the 2M buyout we are going to need a SP next yr anyways. Its either get what seems to be good value in Keuchel now or hope Wheeler picks up where he left off & pony up the money for him in which case you still either A) gotta sign a 5th SP or B)hope Szapucki or Peterson are ready to take a spot next yr.

No new info...ugh. I’ve seen snippets here and there that he likely won’t pitch more than 120-130in bc he only put in a partial season in2018. Great! Perfect for the Mets. Give him Hecha-whatever’s $3m and adds club option for $8m. $11m/2yr if it all shakes out.

Yeah, that would explain some of the hesitancy throughout the league.

He actually would make a great fit here, even if he is on an innings limit.

yeah, seems like the perfect fit...Vargas and Buchholz combined can get us 200 innings...just sign him

They could should add a 4-5 slash swing guy. But you all are talking about is bringing a guy that would fill the 5 spot at best ala Vargas, a WAR even or plus 1 guy.

That's easy. We have four or five candidates here.

The problem with the Mets is that if we lose one of the Fab Four, we have to replace a guy that will be plus 3-4 games.

I don't think the season teeters on the five spot "oh! we are an 80 win team if Vargas sucks!" No, because what we expect of Vargas...I won't use wins, but a guy that gives us 51% QS...that isn't the problem. It is finding a guy to give us 75% QS if (when) Thor, Wheeler, Matz make 25 starts instead of 31.

What I am saying is that this group scramble for a 4-5 guy addition now is a solution for which there isn't a problem. Gio instead of Vargas vs. most of these guys mentioned isn't going to do dick except $15 million plus bucks fighting it out, with the loser going to the bullpen where he has never been.

What we need to find now is a Lugo-type swingman, a guy that has experience and can help in the pen....not an SP in decline years.

But that isn't going to make us a 92 win team instead of an 80 win team. The season will depend on something like this...Wheeler goes down in May. Will the Mets bust a move...trade major youth, take on major salary to get an ace from a team that has tanked or wants to dump salary? I hate using names because people snipe and I'm not sure of current status....but the aces or near aces that were said to be gettable....a Kluber? Bauer? Bumgarner?

Getting someone in a May crisis...not a trade deadline crisis, is what this team doesn't do...and didn't do last year. Maybe a wheeler-dealer with a sense of urgency like BVW is that guy.

The Mets really have less than zero interest in adding more starting pitching depth... smh.

It’s really infuriating I bet he didn’t get that much money either , this division is going to be so competitive this year every game is important and if someone gets hurt you don’t want to be pissing games away starting guys like flexen. You need some quality depth. I mean Oswalt wasn’t bad last year but after that some of the trash we threw out there was a joke.

Crap. It's going to be pricey to try and add a guy mid-season.
