Yeah, but he's also Zach Wheeler and has been complaining since the moment he got to the bigs.


Really? I don't remember a long history of complaining but it could be because he's missed 2.5 of the last 3 seasons and has kind of been out of sight out of mind for the most part. Could you refresh my memory?

From another person's perspective, sure. But he's been itching to start and probably would have remained a starter if not for his Tommy John. He thinks of himself as a starter who lost his job to injury and frankly, he should think of himself that way. As long as he's willing to play a different role, that's all that matters.

Plus, it doesn't take much smarts to realize that reliever in the majors beats starter in the minors, so he'd be foolish to complain, but any athlete in his position would think of themselves as a starter.

Berrios with a 2 run dong puts the Mets up 6-3, mid-9th.


.185 hitting 30% K rate, 4 homers in 4 years Berrios? Cool.

Don't bother setting any sort of expectations on this. This is again just some people expecting players to be perfect or living up to some ideal or the belief that everything written is going to have some wonderful positive spin. When in fact most things we read/hear are the end result of someone's filtered and biased perception. Just because Marc Carig thought that something was dysfunctional doesn't necessarily make it a fact. That was really just his opinion. And when a player comments publicly on anything, his words are subject to interpretation depending on who hears it.

What are the odds that "first pitch" Rosario has the fewest pitchers per AB ratio in the bigs next year?

How about this one:

Over/under on 150 strikeouts? I'm going over.
Over/under on 25 walks? I'm going under.

He could go under 150 Ks this year. He had a relatively low K rate in the minors. On the walks . . . tough call. Might even go under 20, but if he does everything else well, it won't matter.
