Power Rankings
Only three players had at least 10 home runs for the Mets and David Wright isn't on that list.
With proper offensive upgrades to left field and shortstop, they could be a contender next season. The pitching staff looks stout.
The Mets haven't had a Rookie of the Year since Darryl Strawberry and Dwight Gooden went back to back in 1983-84. Jacob deGrom has a great shot to join that illustrious group.
With seven games remaining against the Nationals, the Mets should be Braves fans' second favorite team, right? C'mon, say it, Braves fans: "Let's go Mets!" "Let's go Mets!" You know you want to.
As good as he is defensively, Juan Lagaras' great offensive production of late has to be very encouraging for the Mets. All he needs to do is be around a league average hitter in order to provide great value to the team.
How about Lucas Duda, man? He's gonna push Anthony Rizzo for the NL Silver Slugger at first base. I'm sure there were tons of people who thought that duo would be at the top of this discussion back in March.
Telling Matt Harvey to stop talking about his rehab progress on the radio? Get outta here with that, Terry Collins.
It's too bad seeing Jacob deGrom go down with a shoulder issue, but hopefully it's as non-serious as the Mets have made it sound.
Lucas Duda over Ike Davis was the correct decision. Gotta give credit when it's Duda (ugh, I'll show myself out for that lame pun).
Jacob deGrom is a great Rookie of the Year candidate, but he's fighting an uphill battle. He already doesn't have a ton of workload (87 innings) and, on top of that, voters generally favor position players over pitchers. So Billy Hamilton is still the favorite, but watch deGrom here. He's legit.
