With recent off-season additions The 2016 New York Mets are looking like a team not to be messed with but are they truly the next team to cement themselves as a baseball dynasty?
Even though they lost Daniel Murphy to the Nationals, The Mets still retain their historic starting rotation and a now reformed offense they seem to have already won the NL East when news broke that they had re-signed Outfielder Yoenis Cespedes to a 3 year $75 million contract with an opt-out option after the first year.
Bullpen. They go out and sign Antonio Bastardo who pitches well against NL East threats such as the proclaimed “Met Killer” Freddie Freeman. Freeman is 0-19 against Bastardo while division rival Bryce Harper has gone 2-12 with 7 strikeouts.
To also build the bullpen up they re-sign Jerry Blevins who would be sidelined early after playing in 7 games posting a 1-0 record with 4 K’s and 5 innings pitched. Buddy Carlyle whose season was also cut short in 2015.
The highlight of every Mets game this season will be a showcase due to the starting pitching. This year is planned to be epic for starting pitching.
Zack Wheeler (Should Return In June Or July)
If that is not an epic rotation than I have no idea what one is honestly. If you have read my other article I covered the offensive side but if you need a refresher than just remember this name YOENIS CESPEDES.
