About a week ago, reports came out that the Cubs and Mets were discussing pitching. This left no Mets pitcher out whatsoever, but most of the talk was about RHP Zack Wheeler.
Charles the Cat says that the Cubs and Mets are having steady talk, but nothing was about Zack Wheeler. This still left DeGrom in question.
Though known MLB Insider, Jon Heyman, backed up the Cubs recent action on Zach Britton, he also says the Cubs are also considering Jeurys Familia of the Mets.
Familia is 4-4 with a 2.88 ERA, while Britton sits at 1-0 with an ERA of 3.68.
I’m going to need Theo to stop toying with us. Are you going starter or reliever? Are you going big with DeGrom? Please, Theo. Just give us answers.
