Mets Spring Training Mailbag: On Edwin Diaz as closer, trading Steven Matz, and more

In the past week I was sent many of the same questions, so I rolled them together with the following four responses.... Let's Go Mets!!

If a trade is on the table, would you trade Steven Matz for Miguel Andujar?

No. I realize the Mets have a multitude of starting pitchers, specifically Matz and Michael Wacha, both of whom believe they're worthy of the rotation instead of the bullpen.

However, as the old saying goes, you can never have enough pitching. And, this is especially true for a team that intends to rely heavily on their rotation and the hope of a significantly-better bullpen.
