New York Mets Starting Lineup 5/6/21 Mets Lineup

12-13, 2nd in NL East

red-x Projected Proj

Of all the teams in baseball, most feel that the New York Mets are the biggest question mark as a team. The built a young team around a power pitching staff. That staff is now either older or they've departed the Big Apple. Left behind are two staff aces that warrant consideration as the best pitcher in baseball every season that they are healthy. That's a key variable; when they are healthy. Pitching has been a key in the success of lack thereof for the Mets for the last five years.

This year will be no different. The batting order has a couple of young stars within the nine, but there are also some potential weak links. New York does have three hitters projected to hit over .290 on the season, and a cleanup hitter thought to have a shot at 50 long balls. If the Mets score runs, a healthy pitching staff could be a huge reason a few prognosticators see them as winning the NL East pennant. There is only one pitcher on the staff who isn't expected to win double-digit games in 2020. Good pitching and timely hitting could make 2020 amazing in New York.
