According to DiComo, the mets will look to sign a starting pitcher (a move that I agree with).

http://m.mets.mlb.com/news/article/2565 ... e-in-2018/

If everyone is healthy then there's not room for everyone.

Thor, deGrom, Free Agent. (Dicomo says Harvey should get a spot, but I think he'll have to earn it in the Spring and Harvey will be pitching in a contract year so I think he's got a shot).

He thinks Lugo will be the easiest transition to the pen and that Montero (out of options) will probably be assigned to the pen, which leaves 1 spot for Matz/Wheeler/Gsellman and two of those 2 have a legit chance of opening in Vegas next year.

Matz, Wheeler, Lugo, and Gsellman wil all have at least one option left, and can be assigned to AAA if needed. Harvey if he doesn't make it probably gets cut after ST, since his contract would not be guaranteed in that case.

Just do what the Dodgers have done and keep two different starters on the 10-day DL all season.

I was thinking that, but I was also thinking what Nitey pointed out, so I opted for the middle ground. Not too much optimism or realism, but yes, if they actually make it work, it could be a legit rotation with shuffling people back and forth. They won't even have to do the 10 day DL for some of these guys with options.

Pretty confident Flexen is Las Vegas opening day starter.

That's tricky. I'm pretty sure he can refuse the assignment.

He would just be cut at that point.

He should be cut well before it gets to that point. I am stunned they have indicated they are willing to pay him the $5M+ for next season. Not sure why they are so willing to throw that kind of $ away. If Matt Harvey were a FA this winter, the Mets would never voluntarily offer him $5M coming off the year he's had. One of the odder decisions this team seems lined up to make.
