Gomez is also having a down year and is playing through injuries, while the name is sexy and I would have liked to have him here, his numbers this season are nothing to go crazy about.
and while I'm not too crazy about Bruce either, he is an attainable player that can help now, and would instantly improve the offense. Giving up Wheeler only
would be a good move imo.
Mets would never take on Upton's contract, never.
