The Mets are going to surprise people in 2013.
Though they're a young, relatively inexperienced squad, the team features many up-and-coming stars that are ready to burst onto the national stage. The outfield will be a point of emphasis, with many unfamiliar names set to patrol Citi Field's huge dimensions, but the infield is one of the best in the National League, especially at the corners.
The real aspect of the team not to sleep on is the rotation. Matt Harvey and Jon Niese are a dynamic duo at the top of the rotation, Shaun Marcum has quality stuff and Dillon Gee eats innings and keeps the team in the game every time he takes the mound. If Johan Santana can get healthy, he'll be a plus, but if not, Zack Wheeler will be ready for the call.
But who will outplay their contract? Here are the top five.
