Preview: What I think about the 2013 Mets


Well it's Opening Day Finally and Baseball is back!  Thank God!  The Games will count today and I'm excited to see what the Mets have to lead them forward.

I just wanted to outline what I think about the 2013 Mets by positions..

First off, I like to say that I see a real future in the starting pitching. The Mets with the foundation of Harvey, Niese, Gee with Wheeler in the near future in the rotation , all positives as the Mets start to piece this thing together... Santana was a loss, but I did not think the Mets were going to get many innings out of him to begin with.. The Mets will have to see if Jeremy Hefner or anybody else like Aaron Laffey will step up.

The Bullpen has a new collection of arms that the Mets will see if they can do it collect-ably. Do I get excited by the names on the pitching roster?  Not really  - but with bullpens you never know, its mix and match.. It will be interesting to see how Bobby Parnell adapts to his new closer role...

The Mets have a hitting catcher in Travis d'Arnaud, but the Mets will let him start the season in AAA. If John Buck has a slow start he will see d'Arnaud in his rear-view mirror by May 15th... I like what I seen this spring out of d'Arnaud and he looks like he brings energy to the team.. Right now Buck gives the Mets some leadership with the young pitchers and it seems they like to throw to him. We will see if Buck can hit .260 with 18 HR's this season..

At First base Ike Davis looks like he will have a great season in front of him, as long as he stays healthy.. I think Ike can hit 40 HR's if he gets on a hot streak...

Mets GM Alderson said Mets are "Incomplete" at this point


In a interview with Marc Carig of NY Newsday, Mets GM Sandy Alderson Claimed The State of the New York Mets is "Incomplete" at this point of the off-season...

Alderson said the Mets are pursuing "a number of things.'' He added, "To say that we've been patient is probably an understatement. But that's what we've been.''

That patience could translate into bargains for the Mets, who have cast a wide net in their search for a back-end starting pitcher.

But waiting out the market comes with some risk, namely that they ultimately come away without any upgrades.

Alderson said he is "uneasy'' about the state of the bullpen and that the outfield could use "an upgrade at virtually every one of those positions.''
