  • Some of those stats are very telling. The Mets didn’t have a great year but as a fan I would def. say that it was fun. What I was able to take from those stats is that they aren’t that far from being a possible playoff team. They got plenty of hits and plenty of people on base but didn’t drive in enough runs. That might change just with the new demensions in the OF. Plus with Davis coming back, Wright healthy, Bay playing better down the stretch and Duda another year in the lineup could feel like they got a big upgrade. I think their offense will be just fine this year and if they can land a closer to go along with Santana coming back they have a shot at a wild card. Even with Santana they still need another SP that can eat some innings and I think they will get that in a Jason Marquis type of player.

    Sounds like the Mets need some consistent pitching.
