I hear you, but buying makes a lot more sense with a healthy de Grom and a healthy Lindor. If neither is healthy, what are we buying? Before the break the thought was that we needed offense, and the talk was renting a Bryant or even Baez. Now it looks like we need pitching and defense, too. That's a big ask.The only part I can't agree with is the giving up and not buying. This isn't the Wilpon Mets anymore where you find a hole or 2 on the team and just say oh well we'll try again next year. That was what annoyed me most all those years, they'd half ass every attempt at competing
That's what I'm thinking. I love the guy, but unless he learns how to Maddux his way through without all that overpowering speed, I'm not so sure I'd be thinking about re-signing him because he's going to command a huge payday and I just don't think any human body can keep this up.I mean, it has to be directly related to the amount of pitches 100+ mph he throws, right? Mechanically he’s tight. The human arm just wasn’t designed to throw a ball that fast that much, right?
