Pitching was the weak point of the 2011 Mets, and the bullpen was the main area of concern. The Mets blew 24 saves last season, one of the worst marks in the league.
The starting rotation pitched decently, but was certainly nothing special. The Mets are hoping that changes this year, with Santana coming back healthy, and Niese and Gee having another year each of MLB experience under their belts.
If this was a few years ago, Johan Santana would pretty much be the favorite in every category, but with a few health concerns and an entire year off, we'll have to wait and see.
