    Stop thinking small. The 2001 Seattle Mariners should be in your sights.

      Nope. Not Seattle 01, not Mets 86.

      My guess is still 103.

        They seem to be on pace for about 92 wins this year.

          Sticking to my 85

            We have a winner as it'll be either 87 or 88.

              I revised my first post and guessed "near 90" once the opening day roster was more officially set. To be honest, nobody would have predicted this roster winning so many. We were basing our predictions on a healthy rotation and team. Would anybody have expected Reyes to be here and excellent? Or Lugo and Gsellman? Or T.J. Rivera?

              So many contributors weren't even expected to be on the roster.

                That's what makes baseball baseball. I never thought I'd feel good about where this team's youth is until Walker went down and Rivera picked him up. Baseball is a weird game in that way.

                  Did anyone other than Noah and Familia perform as expected, in a positive way? I guess I can add Cespedes to that list. I think it was Casey Stengel who said "baseball is a funny game."

                  Addison Reed and Astrubal Cabrera were above and beyond. Otherwise , as noted, it was contributions from a lot of unknown or unexpected sources.

                    I think Neil Walker exceeded expectations

                      You are right about that. How quickly I forget.

                        Colon exceeded expectations, big time.

                          The season isn't over yet. The Mets still have to win 12 more games. If they go 12-8 down the stretch here, they will have had a very successful year with 99 wins to their credit.
