For 2021: Hoping Peterson and Puck can make some noise this year and push for that 5th spot. Maybe even Lockett. As noted, there will be money to spend, too.

Wow, the words ‘only the Mets’ immediately come to mind. Weren’t they supposed to be on a hiatus from camp? Any word on when/how this happened?

Michael Wacha and Rick Porcello don’t exactly fill me with confidence the slot will be adequately covered. Too bad they didn’t sign McHugh when they had the chance.


A lot of pitchers are probably quietly pitching with UCL injuries that are being managed (Tanaka has been doing it for years). Thor's must have been at the "this is going to happen eventually" point or a workout pushed him over the tipping point, so they saw now as the time to get it done.

I wouldn't be surprised if a couple of other big surgeries happen in the coming weeks.

Rumors of weekly doubleheaders when play resumes so looks like we’re short one arm again.

Yeah. 26th man will be a starting pitcher, now. 6 man rotations. Then you have the 27th man being a reliever or a bat.

That seems a little much to me. A shortened season is fine.

Depending on how late they start they may still need DH to get a reasonable number of games in. I grew up with regular DH. Bring them on

I could live with using a DH, especially with 2 first basemen on the roster and Cespedes perhaps not being ready to play in the field. It would work for the Mets.

A crazy solution to the lots of double headers approach would be to expand the roster, not just for the double header but overall. I wouldn't mind seeing a 27 or 28 person roster if they play 8 games every 7 days.

I wasn't talking about designated hitters. I don't want to see that, ever.

Love this idea from a fan perspective, buts its potentially disastrous for the Mets. If you're using 6 starters, and with Wacha and Matz' health history, thats a lot of Oswalt/Lockett in the majors this year. Maybe Peterson gets accelerated a bit.

DH - double header. I read it as . . . well, you know. Confusing when DH has two meanings.

As I posted before in another thread, I've been following COVID stuff super closely since Jan. I think the odds are very far against there being a "this year".

New York Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard underwent successful Tommy John surgery on Thursday, a source tells ESPN. If all goes well in his recovery, he'll miss 12-14 months and return sometime in the 2021 season.
