Re-Evaluating my Season Preview

Here is what I said about the Mets on MLB Blog prior to spring training:
Hey everyone! I’ve been busy working for Pepper:MLB Blog that I kind of “abandoned” Mets Flash!
Well, I’m back and here to give you my 2014 roster projection.
I believe the Mets Starting Rotation will look a little bit like this:
1. Jon Niese
2. Zack Wheeler
3.Dillon Gee
4. Bartolo Colon
5. John Lannan or Daisuke Matsusaka
Report= B+
The Rotation is good, yet I think people are overvaluing Colon. He is a number #4 pitcher at best, and has very little stamina. I believe Lannan wins the battle for the Fifth Starter, as a truly dont like Dice-K’s stuff.
Bullpen:
Carlos Torres
Scott rice
Kyle Farnsworth
Jose Valverde
Vic Black
Bobby Parnell
(The loser of the #5)
Report: A-
I think the bullpen is a strength of this years Mets Club, Valverde was a steal, because if he can find his pitch, he can be dominant.
Catchers:
Anthony Recker
Travis D’arnaud
report : B
D’Arnaud’s offense was mediocre last year, but if he can give us 15 HR’s I will be satisfied.
Well that’s all for today, I’ll give you Part 2 later this week.

Infielders:
1B Lucas Duda
2B Daniel Murphy
SS Wilmer Flores
3B David Wright
Review: A
This Infield is really good. Though we could potentially have a different 1B and SS, I believe that this is the best alignment. It’s time for the Mets to move on from Ike. I’m sick of seeing Davis struggle in Spring. Enough is enough eventually. Also Tejada seriously needs to hit in Spring Training. Tejada’s average needs to be above 250, and that’s mediocre at best!
Outfielders:
LF Eric Young Jr
CF Chris Young
RF Curtis Granderson
Review: B+
The additions of Young and Granderson will certainly help the Mets cause. I hope Lagares makes the team as a back up if he doesn’t start. I like him on the Mets.
Bench:
IF-Josh Satin
C- Anthony Recker ( last post)
OF- Juan Lagares
OF- Matt DenDekker
IF- Omar Q.
Review: C+
I was a little harsh back in March, …. but I feel like all of the points I touched on were accurate, and I take credit in predicting big things for Jacob deGrom. I think that next year, with the bar set higher the Mets will prove themselves worthy of a playoff spot. Good times are around the corner for sure for Los Mets.
