HERE IS WHAT OTHER METS FANS HAVE TO SAY:

Let's be careful about passing judgement on the newest New York Met. I know he's got one of those names that, years from now when the Mets are on a winning run, fans would lump in with such players as Don Hahn, Dave Schneck, and Kane Davis. But it's just one game. He saved it, that's great, so let's see what happens.

He looks like he's got good stuff, as evidenced in that nice three-inning debut save. But an uncharitable thought immediately popped into my head. It was Danny DeVito as Louie DePalma from "Taxi" saying to the Jeff Conaway character, "Wheeleh...you're a loseh!"

This is exactly the type of player the Mets SHOULD be looking at the remainder of the season. He had 3 bust cups of coffee with the Devil Rays, but he is only 25 years old now.

His salary is the minimum, I am sure, and he may prove able to replace a Weathers or a Strickland who have been fairly ineffective for a lot more money.

The league may figure him out soon enough, but he got a legitimate 3-inning save last week and K'd Derek Jeter Friday night, and those two events alone have earned him a good long audition!

The bartender at my local bar is named Dan Wheeler and he's a big Mets fan, When I saw Dan Wheeler the pitcher at Yankee Stadium last week, he did a good job striking out Derek Jeter. When I saw my friend Dan, I told him " Hey you struck out Derek Jeter!"

Well I met Dan in Arizona when he attended CAC. I was only in Fourth grade or so but I would go watch him all the time with my aunt DeAnna. He was so awesome to watch! Well that last day He was in Arizona we went to say bye to him and I was so mad because he was leaving, I cried. His heart is in the game. We miss him truely!

One of several D Rays that jerked a tear when Jim Morris made his major league debut down here in Texas. I think back in '98 or '99.

Pretty amazing that he was never given a chance to be more than a long man here, and he's now with the Astros doing a great job setting up Lidge in the playoffs.

Pretty decent reliever for the Mets but was another victim of Art Howe in his overuse of the bullpen. Pitched in the playoffs later on in '04 for the Astros and became the key to their pen. There was an article in USA Today that said in Wheeler's first game pitched in the majors he actually literally took a dump in his pants.

This guy was a decent pitcher for us but let's face it, he was marginal, lingering between Shea and Norfolk. He was the 7th man in the pen. I liked him but after a decent 2003 he didn't pitch very well in 2004 and the Mets ended up dumping him. In Houston he has been lights out with a WHIP of under 1.00 which is phenominal. He finally found his groove. Too bad we got rid of him, he would have been better than Manny Aybar/Danny Graves/Jose Santiago.

With all of the troubles the Mets have had with the pen these past few years, it is very disheartening to see Mr. Wheeler perform so well for the Astros. Once again, what were they thinking? What did Mr. Seuss do for us in his glorious Met career? Another one of the the millions of boneheaded moves our club cannot help but make.

Yep, looks like another ex-Met succeeding well elsewhere, while in return, we receive Dr. Seuss. A near-All-Star team of ex-Mets can be put together.
