The Mets, however, would only accept a deal from the Yankees if it blew every other one out of the water. For the Yankees' part, they have absolutely no reason to entertain such an idea.
As for the idea of Wheeler going to the Yankees, the Mets would probably entertain it if NYY were willing to blow away other offers. If offers are close, the Mets will send Wheeler to Siberia before the Bronx.— Mike Puma (@NYPost_Mets) June 18, 2019
There's just no need for it. There are plenty of other quality starters on the market, from Max Scherzer to Madison Bumgarner to Marcus Stroman to Trevor Bauer. Deals for any of these guys have the added bonus of not bolstering the Mets in the process.
Wheeler isn't the best possible option no matter how you slice it. The man has a 4.94 ERA in 15 starts this year, truly nothing special.
The Mets would consider trading Wheeler to the Yankees, but would have to be blown away by the offer https://t.co/bX2DswV03W— New York Post Sports (@nypostsports) June 18, 2019
The Bombers have plenty of avenues to pursue here, and should feel zero need to help out the Mets by throwing assets their way for a middle-of-the-road starter. They're far better off wheeling and dealing elsewhere.
