  • Player/Players who can change the 2019 season results

    Not deGrom, who was amazing, but who can either improve their overall 2018 results or as a newcomer can change the Mets?

    My vote is for Zack Wheeler. Better late than never. This is his season.

    For non-pitcher -Michael Conforto. Time for him to come into his own and cut down on strikeouts.

      Amed Rosario - He was a highly regarded prospect by non homer sources. Form the reports I skimmed he had an authoritative bat this spring. He will be 24. It's time to step up and be a 1-7 batter and not someone for whom you consider batting the pitcher 8th.

        Good choice. 2018 was his age 22 season though. He turned 23 at Thanksgiving so he's entering his age 23 season which shows how young he is.

          Raji Davis. If we see him in the lineup for more than a few games, we know the season is in the toilet.

            Interesting choice for a season changer.

              Robinson Cano. One more MVP-level season.

                Wilson Ramos. I've been watching the Mets for 10 years, and they finally got a real catcher.
                They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

                  Had to look it up for myself. But you're right. I didn't realize how brutal it's been for their catchers since LoDuca in 2007:


                  Brian Schneider (past-his-prime)
                  Omir Santos
                  Rod Barajas
                  Josh Thole
                  Henry Blanco
                  Mike Nikeas
                  Ronny Paulino (past-his-prime)
                  John Buck
                  Anthony Recker
                  Travis D'Arnaud
                  Kevin Plawecki
                  Rene Rivera
                  Tomas Nido
                  Devin Merasco

                    You forgot Ramon Castro (wish I could).

                      Game 1 is here. How many more to come?

                        Don't know, but the 3 run home run he just hit was nice to see.

                          I don't see him ever being much more than he is now. This is his 5th big league season. Feels like waiting for Duda or Ike Davis or Pelfry or d'arnaud to finally blossom. At a certain point the reality sets in and you realize this is all there is. Not to be misunderstood - I like him a lot and hope I'm wrong, I'd love to see him bloom into a star, but its not going to happen. He's still a good player though.

                          Noah Syndergarrd is the key in my opinion. He needs to rise to a sustained level of excellence, at least a level below deGrom, which is very, very good.

                          So I guess my answer for a season changer is Thor.

                            I also would have said Conforto. I probably would have said Conforto the last 3 years. I still think its in there for Conforto. I never felt that way about Duda or Davis....not nearly. The thought never crossed my mind with either Pelfrey or TDA.

                            His OPS is still over .900 this year - so I am hoping he is coming into his own. He has to find a way (if possible) to be more consistent and less streaky.

                              But I didn't say Conforto.

                              I said Noah Syndergarrd.

                              Last night is testament to the sagacity of my choice.
