For some, 2014 seems like an eon away. That holds especially true for the MLB teams who are still in the hunt for postseason baseball. After all, there's still more than a month left of the regular season, and then another month filled with playoff drama.
But for teams who are well out of contention, like the New York Mets, fans and ownership are starting to peek towards next season to see what may come. So with that in mind, let's take a look at what the Mets' starting lineup might look like in 2014.
Keep in mind, this all purely my speculation, based on what I think the Mets will do in free agency over the offseason to better the club. I am not accounting for any players they might acquire in a trade. In other words, this lineup prediction is made up of current players and/or possible free-agent acquisitions the team might make.
