What the heck. Had some fun a week or so ago by suggesting we trade (my sentimental favorite) catcher Mike Redmond for Met Reliever Dan Wheeler (who made us look foolish for his three innings of relief). The fun was the responses were very pro or very con. A lot depended on whether or not Piazza will be going to first base. All thoughtful and appreciated. Have since done some homework on Wheeler. His stats are not impressive. But, he has shown the capacity to throw three or four innings in relief. Compare that to our relievers who struggle to do one-third of an inning. So I'm hoping we'll see Wheeler in this Mets series. I'm anxious to see if he's for real.
