The thing I love about Syndergaard is that he looks like Harvey when he pitches, both delivery wise and demeanor. He also has the late movement on his pitches that Harvey has, whereas Wheeler is more finesse and needs to learn how to control his pitches better. We've definitely seen flashes with Wheeler, like the SF start and last night taking a no hitter into the 7th. He still needs to compose himself when he gets in trouble a bit more, but he's going to be a good one.
Combine that with Montero, Mejia, and Niese, the Mets rotation is going to be incredible, possibly as soon as mid year in 2014. Now the key is figuring out how to flip this pitching into good OF prospects.
