A RIVAL SCOUT SIZES UP THE METS

It's not a strong club when they're healthy—and they're not healthy.... Johan Santana left everything out there the night of his no-hitter last June. He was never the same after that. I don't think you can count on him right now—or find any value for him on the trade market.... I'm a big fan of Matt Harvey. When he's throwing strikes, the tight spin on his breaking ball can make it look like a four-seam fastball.... Zack Wheeler has a chance to be special too. He throws up to 98 effortlessly, has a good breaking ball and a feel for his changeup.... Jon Niese is a very solid No. 3 starter, but he'll start the season as No. 1. He's a little bit like Andy Pettitte: He has a curveball, he gets in on righthanders, and he has more than enough fastball to keep them honest.... For their sake I hope Bobby Parnell can handle the closer role because he has better stuff than Frank Francisco and doesn't make as many mistakes.... David Wright has really matured into a smart hitter. Early in his career he used the middle of the field a lot, but now he'll pull the ball more to drive it.... Ike Davis had better at bats this spring, but only because he couldn't have had worse at bats than he did last year. He has a very rhythm-oriented approach. Last year he never seemed to get his feet and hands to work right.... I like Ruben Tejada a lot. He has bat speed, handles the fastball well and has gap power.... Terry Collins has done a nice job in a not very good situation.
