The Mets have never made the playoffs three years in a row, but if this can finally be the year their pitchers all stay healthy, this is going to be one hell of a season. This team was good enough for the top wild card and that was with a ridiculous slew of injuries and using no-name starting pitchers down the stretch. Most of last year's team is still intact, no everyday player or top starter has left or new ones added.

The 5 Aces +2*
Syndergaard
deGrom
Harvey
Matz
Wheeler
Gsellman*
Lugo*

The Lineup
3B Reyes
SS Cabrera
CF Cespedes
LF Granderson
2B Walker
RF Bruce
1B Duda
C d'Arnaud

Who knows what will happen with David Wright. If he's healthy, he'll play, but there's no knowing what that does for Reyes or Duda. I'd be interested to see a 3-man rotation for 2 positions, plus Reyes can fill in at SS when Cabrera needs a break so all 3 of them would be in a game from time to time.

Reyes is far better than Wright at this point. David can spot at 1B and pinch hit/DH (interleague) at most.

Coming into the season it's the best rotation in Mets history at worst but so many injury questions.

Rosario will be up at some point when Asdrubal gets hurt and probably won't ever go down again. Absolute stud.

I think we can win the east and compete with the Cubs and beat them if healthy but health is a big ask.

Mets will be good IF the pitching stays healthy, but the Nats are still the team to beat in the East especially if Harper bounces back.

Where does Tebow fit in the lineup

The Nats won the division without Harper at his best, but didn't when he had an MVP season. I'm not so sure he has as big of an impact on the division as the Mets' pitching staff does.

Wright probably won't be able to play for at least the first few weeks of the season.

In other news, Conforto is 5-for-7 with two homers so far in spring training games. 1.571 slugging.

In less meaningful other news, Tebow is killing it at batting practice.

Probably the best headline I've seen this pre-season.

And they say the Mets' defense is a risk.

Garth did that for multiple teams including the Padres. The Mets have probably made more money off Tebow shit in the past 6 months to pay for his contract a few times over.

I don't know how much the team makes on spring training tickets, but he's drawing a good number of UF alum.
