One thing is for sure—there is no pressure on the New York Mets this season. Expectations are that low.
As the 2012 version of the Metropolitans partake in their spring training drills in Port St. Lucie, Fl, it's time to contemplate how their lineup is projected to perform over the 162-game schedule—minus Jose Reyes, of course.

The fences have moved in at CitiField, so that should help the Mets' offensive production as well.
