A few years back, the Mets were projected to win the World Series. They then went on to have one of the most disappointing season's in history. They lost players one by one to the injury bug, until David Wright was the lone star left in the lineup. That didn't even last, as Wright took a Matt Cain fastball to the head and hit the disabled list as well.
Since then, the Mets have been a complete disaster. Whether it is the Bernie Madoff trial, the Jason Bay experiment, or the repeated injuries, the Met's just always seem to be on the losing end. Luck is never on their side, and the continue to suffer for it. Sandy Alderson is trying to usher in a new era, but it may take some time.
This year may not be a good one for the New York Mets. Nonetheless, here are my predictions for the Mets this upcoming season.
