I firmly believe the 2012 New York Mets will be much better than most people are giving them credit for. They have a potent lineup and the potential to have a good pitching staff. Add a revamped bullpen to that and you have the recipe for a potential winning team.
I've read a lot of articles on this site talking about the Mets offense and they weren't talking about it in a good way. I've yet to understand the reasoning behind this. How many other major league lineups can say they have the potential for four 25+ HR guys? (Wright, Davis, Bay, Duda).
Now I know what a lot of people are going to think after that. How can you possibly say that Bay is still a 25+ HR guy? I know that Citi Field has drastically hurt Bay's numbers and the walls being moved in are not going to restore him to his 35 home run days of Boston and Pittsburgh, but can you honestly tell me that Bay does not have the ability to 25 home runs anymore? They moved the walls in Citi Field WAY in and even made them shorter. Home runs WILL be hit in this new Citi Field.
Anyway, this article is not talking about Mets that have a chance at league MVP, this is simply talking about who has the chance to be the MVP for the Mets in 2012.
