The general sentiment revolving around the New York Mets' prospective 2013 Opening Day roster isn't too optimistic. With the exception of the infield and two or three spots in the starting rotation, there isn't a spot on the roster that is set in stone for the upcoming season.
Many areas need to be improved upon when April comes around, but seeing as the free-agent market is basically dried up from the Mets' perspective given their financial issues, these upgrades will have to come from prospects already within the system.
As has been the case numerous times in the past (see: David Price, Mike Trout and others), prospects can make a world of difference for a young team lacking in key areas.
Sandy Alderson's Mets may not have a prospect on the same level as Trout or Price, but they do have a slew of young players who could prove to be difference makers come the 2013 season.
Here we will handicap the odds of some Mets prospects making the Opening Day roster.
