Zack Wheeler pitches well again

35 Comments

I was on WIP in Philly this morning and Angelo asked me if I had a choice of being given the Phillies GM job or the Mets GM job, which one would I take. It didn’t take me long to answer that: the Mets. Easy. And not just because being the Mets GM means you don’t have to live in Philly. But because the future looks brighter in New York than it does in Philly right now.

Part of that future: Zack Wheeler. Who after some rough outings to start the year at Las Vegas is starting to get moving:

The 22-year-old threw six scoreless innings Sunday against Sacramento to earn his second straight win … He has now surrendered one run on eight hits over his last two starts …

Pair him with Matt Harvey and you’ve got something nice to build on.

Wheeler should be pitching for the Mets sometime this summer.
