Mets Roster I'd Like to See in 2010
The Mets had a dreadful season in 2009. Although many injuries plagued them as well as missing holes, they are sure to strike back in 2010. Hopefully with this roster.
Here is my opinion of the Mets 2010 roster.
Many people probably have a similar roster plan to mine and moves are logical. Please comment and give feedback.
Thank you for your time and appreciation.
1st Base: Daniel Murphy
Not a bad choice. He was okay with the bat last year, and played a good defensive first baseman, Also one of his plays are up for an award.
By 2011, Ike Davis should be ready to start at first base and play in the majors.
2nd Base: Orlando Hudson
He's got some pop and he has had several gold glove awards. I would definitely want him.
He is pretty inexpensive and a good choice for the Mets.
Shortstop: Jose Reyes
Good shortstop. I think he will bounce back in 2010 and be a better defensive shortstop and hitter. The only thing I'm worried about is his tendency toward leg injuries.
3rd Base: David Wright
Good third baseman, although his power numbers were down last year, I'm sure he will bounce back in 2010.
Hopefully, this year, Wright won't be drilled with a baseball in the head.
Catcher: Josh Thole/Benjie Molina
I don't really care behind the plate as much as I do at any other position, but I think it would be nice to see Thole a rookie start for the Mets in 2010 or at least be the backup.
But I see the necessity of the Mets' acquiring another catcher. Molina would be good.
Left Field-Matt Holliday/Bay
I really think it is necessary that the Mets acquire a power bat in left field. Preferably, Holliday; if not him, Bay.
But my guess is that the Red Sox is going to try to lock down Jason Bay and sign him to make sure they compete with the defending champions, the Yankees.
Holliday would probably hit within the .300s here.
Center Field-Carlos Beltran
The five tool player I believe will be injury free and have kneeless problems next year. I'd like to see him bat third in the order.
Gold Glove maybe next year?
Right Field- Jeff Francoeur
He batted an impressive 300 in the 2nd half, and I think the Mets got a steal because Francoeur is way younger than Ryan Church.
And I think with help he can be the same player he was in Atlanta a couple of years ago.
Don't get to hyped up over Halladay because the Mets may not get him but he would be a nice addition if we did.
If so, I would put him as No. 1. Johan would otherwise be my No. 1 guy a guy who can give you 17-20 wins a season or more and just dominate the game.
Better than Burnett in my opinion, this guy is a top of the rotation starter who can pitch behind Santana, a guy who can sometimes give you as many wins as Santana.
This guy would be a dominant force in the Mets rotation.
Pitcher-3 Randy Wolf
Pitched very well for the Los Angeles Dodgers last year and I think he could give the Mets something to cheer about for sure.
He can give you 12-16 wins; at best a good No. 3 starter.
Pitcher-4 John Maine
Can give you 10-15 wins. He's my top 4 guy because when he's at his best, he can throw the high fastball to throw off hitters.
I definitely like him over most others.
Pitcher-5 Oliver Perez
Hes not that good and honestly untul he can be more mature, he doesn't deserve any higher.
Preferably I'd rather see Niese start who impressed me last year than him. Although on the flip side, he can give you 5-10 wins, which is decent for a No. 5 guy.
This guy never ceases to amaze me even in the toughest situations.This guy deserves his accomplishments and hopefully will succeed in 2010.
