  • 2016 Mets Season Thread

    Opening day is less than 48 hours away.

    Many consider the team favorites to win the division. If they make the post-season their pitching should take them far.

    This year's opening series will be against the Royals. Just like last year's closing series.

    Let's Go Mets!

      Let's Go Mets!
      If we project out Spring Training, this is how the division will go:

      Code:
      Team                 W-L    PCT GB
      Nationals           132-30 .818 --
      Phillies            97-65  .600 35
      Marlins             69-93  .435 63
      Mets                47-115 .292 85
      Braves              38-124 .231 94

        I actually agree with the standings EXCEPT I think you can swap the Mets and Phils.

        The Nats will be on a mission all season and it started in ST. The Mets offense, defense and a revolving team in the field will be their downfall. Lets hope I am dead wrong.

          Flores/Tejada > Cabrera. Murphy > Walker. Uribe/Johnson > Campbell. Flores is now the backup at every infield position, I think. You can almost surely pencil him in as a starter. If the past is predictive reserves will see lots of time. That's not good.

          Not sure about the bullpen.

          It's too bad. The starting pitching projects well enough that this could have been a powerhouse team with more depth and a lockdown bullpen. As we've seen, aiming to be "just good enough" has often resulted in missing the target entirely.

          The team could certainly win around 90. The fall-off from Tejada to Reynolds will probably cost a couple wins.

            For the first time since 1988, the Mets will win 100 games. They win the NL east by 17 games over Washington. Harper announces he wants to go to Los Angeles as he is too good to play on the Nats..

            However, for the first time since 1908, the Chicago Cubs will win the World Series. The Mets lose the pennant at Wrigley when Cespedes doesn't bother searching for the baseball at the base of the Ivy as the winning run scores in the bottom of the 9th in game 7.

            Cubs over Kansas City in the WS.

            Harvey, Syndergaard both win 20. Matz and deGrom win 15-18. The 'greatest center fielder ever' spends most of the season collecting splinters as a late inning defensive replacement.

            Travis gets hurt. When he is healthy, he hits .300.

                  Mets win 95 games, win division and lose to Cubbies. Cubs win 1st WS in over 100 years. Lagares earns CF job, Cespedes opts out, Wheeler pitches well for 3 months, Degrom gets extension, Harvey gets traded to restock the farm and the Mets get 120 games out of Wright.

                  Enjoy the season gentlemen.

                        They keep calling Hosmer's run home the "Mad Dash".

                        Again the media feels it needs to label something. If Wright was in the right position, and Duda was an actual fielder Hosmer either doesn't run at all or is out by 20 feet.

                          Salvador Perez has been amazing tonight behind the plate.

                            Agreed, that play's really on Duda...Jackie Robinson stealing home's more a "mad dash" than that play.

                            And yeah, great defense by the Royals so far, with Perez, and poor defense by the Mets and Cespedes.
