The Mediagoon I am just being lazy he is some rehash Mets Report.

UH OH Pitching controversy... Who saw that coming?

"The stakes for losing out on a rotation spot are very clear in the Mets clubhouse. After announcing the two-year deal for lefty Jason Vargas Sunday, the Mets have two open spots in the rotation for five pitchers who were major league starters last year.Zack Wheeler, who has pitched 17 games since 2014 because of an arduous rehab from Tommy John surgery; Steven Matz, whose career has been hampered by a series of injuries; and Matt Harvey, who has struggled since 2016 Thoracic Outlet Syndrome surgery, are facing uncertainty.

Jason Vargas’ addition pushed the Mets’ payroll north of $150 million in a winter the team also added Jay Bruce, Todd Frazier, Anthony Swarzak, Jose Reyes and Adrian Gonzalez."
From the NY Post.

Now go back to the article above this? Which started ends up in bullpen?
