Complete New York Mets 2014 Spring Training Preview

The 2014 season comes with optimism surrounding the New York Mets. They haven’t experienced a winning season since 2008 and produced their second-straight 74-88 record last year, but there’s hope this year will be different.

Over their final 100 games in 2013, the Mets played .500 baseball. That’s not going to get them into the playoffs, but it’s the best stretch they’ve had since beginning 2012 with a 46-40 record.

Gaining financial flexibility has allowed general manager Richard "Sandy" Alderson to spend more money this past winter than he has in his first three combined. Since he took the helm as the team’s GM, 2014 is what his front office has been pointing toward.

This is supposed to be the year the Mets start being consistently competitive for a long period of time.

Questions remain heading into the start of spring training on February 15, but New York will be an interesting team to follow. With the amount of top pitching prospects and acquisitions made for the offense, they have the potential to be in playoff contention at the start of September—if players stay healthy, and the team gets a few lucky breaks.

Let’s take an in-depth look at the players who are expected to make some kind of contribution to the Mets at the big-league level in 2014.
