    It doesn’t sound like he even gave the Mets a chance to match. He wanted out of here! I had that feeling all year. I’m sure the pivot will be verlander but he’s 40 yrs old. Just doesn’t seem smart to me.

    I used to always fall for the hype of our young "phenoms".
    Generation K
    Bill Pulsipher
    Jason Isringhausen
    Paul Wilson
    Then there were the others:
    Shawn Abner
    Jay Payton
    Lastings Milledge
    Philip Humber
    Fernando Martinez
    Gregg Jeffries
    and many more that are coming to mind.

    When you actually dive into it, is it though? Less than .500 record in starts by jake last year. He pitched 60 innings last year. Years 4,5, and 6 of that contract are going to be miserable for a guy who hasn't pitched a complete season '19.

    Verlander for two is definitely a better deal than DeGrom for five.

    Might as well go all in if you have Scherzer too. Return of the two Tigers pitchers together

    Father Time is undefeated! We will be crossing our fingers that he doesn’t rear his ugly head with our top two starters.

    You look at the Phillies lineup. You look at the Braves lineup. Even if Scherzer/Verlander pitch great how deep are they going to pitch?

    Don't worry we are goin to have Alvarez, Baty, and Mark Vientos make a serious impact this year!! I have all the faith in the world!!! /s

    You are spot on. Our pen still sucks, but at least Diaz has a sick entrance right? There is still no way in hell I'm paying Nimmo 5/125 or 6/150. Rather go sign Benitendi and figure it out from there.
