It has come to that point of the New York Mets season again when the team is completely unbearable to watch, loses most games it plays, shows little to no effort nor desire to win, and acts like the same old Mets over and over again.
But, why should we Mets fans subject ourselves to only wallowing in the current brutal state of the team instead of looking forward to a rosier future?
You’re right, we shouldn’t. So that’s why I’m taking a very predictive look at who will constitute the Mets big-league club for the first game of next year’s season. First, we’ll take a look at the nine players who could very well start Game 1 of the 2013 season, the rest of the starting rotation, and then the murkier part of the future Mets, the bullpen and the bench.
Reminder: This projection is in no way based on anything other than my reasoning and my knowledge of the Mets’ offseason tendencies.
