2017: 68-94 37 GB draft position 7th(but traded)

Overview: There was no repeat, and no hope for a repeat early, for the 2016 NBC Champion NY Mets. A fast fall from grace, but justified because of the parade they put on after the 2016 season. So, how do the Mets go about rebuilding and again threatening the playoffs? Can they find the right post season manager? Once a strong rotation, the Mets had a hard go of it last season. Can they rebound as quickly as they fell apart?
  
Starting Rotation: Injuries have depleted this staff last year and this as well. Syndergaard and Harvey had a big impact on the championship team, but now they are in a different spot. Jacob deGrom will play well, although the long ball could haunt. The rest of the rotation, well they could run into problem. Griffen will limit base runners, but he too will see the ball become a sought after souvenir more often than one would strictly like. JC Ramirez has potential and might end up the best option for the #2 spot. Cueto might have an argument, but really these guys are not what they once were. Some, like Syndergaard, are young enough to be stars again. The Mets donít need to spend big on the rotation, as it could and maybe should rebound in the very near future.

Bullpen: Vizcaino leads the bullpen, and he will do quite well. Coulombe and DeLaRosa are ok LOOGYs but shouldnít see key RH batters. Familia is like the starting staff, not what he was but still time to contribute. This group could use more help, easily done in the draft, but if they arenít contending is it really worth it?

Starting Lineup: The Mets offense comes from some maybe not as traditional spots. Dee Gordon will get on base while manning second. At short, the Mets have multiple options. Cabrera would be a great offensive short stop, but he may boot a few too many grounders to stay their long. Reyes can play, as can protection Rosario. At third, Escobar and Rivera form a good platoon. All of these options can get on base well, with some power out of the SS position. At first, Duda has the power even if he will struggle to reach base vs left handers. At catcher, a platoon of Rupp and Vogt will get things done. In the outfield Hernandez will play CF part time, but the Mets need help here. In the corners, Choo and Beltran have power vs RHP and Revere will reach base. Left handed pitchers will have some good days though.
Short at bats in center is the only lacking spot for the Mets. However, they donít have the stand out elite bats right now. Not a ton of power but there are some reasonable on base skills.
 
Defense and Speed: If Cabrera has to play SS, then defense is a question mark. But Dee Gordon will handle second well and at the other spots the Mets are decidedly non descript. There is plenty of speed here, Revere, Choo, Gordon and Reyes will steal bases.

Surplus/Deficiencies: The biggest deficiency is center field, but also the Mets need some more power. They do have some extra bats to move, as 3B and SS are double covered and even Saladino is extra at 2B. The Mets do have some aging players that will need to be replaced in a few years. There are extra starting pitchers but short some in the pen.

Outlook: The 2018 version of the Mets is not likely to do well in the rough and tumble NL East. They may improve on their 5th place finish, but that would be more because of the arrival of the Giants and potentially the drop off from the Rangers, though the Rangers should finish ahead of both the Giants and Mets unless they really get unlucky.
Long term, the Mets still have a lot to like. Ahmed Rosario will be a strong short stop for awhile and the starting rotation has a lot of big names. A wheeling and dealing manager could turn this team around quickly, as there are veterans who can help a contender now. But, sadly, sitting on the players as they age will slow the rebuild process.
