Heading into the 2012 season, there is little optimism about the New York Mets outside of the organization. Manager Terry Collins and GM Sandy Alderson have both expressed that they feel the team will outperform expectations, but in order to do that the Mets will need help from their young talent.
The Mets lost star shortstop Jose Reyes in the offseason and with him went a lot of their offensive explosiveness. However, Ike Davis will be healthy again and the Mets have moved the fences in, which could help David Wright and Jason Bay's productivity.
All eyes have been on the young Met pitchers so far this spring training and a couple of them, along with a few hitters, could make a difference and keep the Mets relevant this season.
