New York Mets Series Preview: Amazins Look To Right The Ship Against The Miami Marlins

Players to Watch

Dee Gordon

If we were to describe Gordon in one word, it would be: Electric.

He combines lightning speeds, with immense talent and a solid, aware eye at the plate. And, oh yeah, he’s a Met killer.

Thus far, in this young season, he’s already hitting to a .450 average. He’ll look to be a major catalyst in this three-game tilt under the bright lights of New York City.

Noah Syndergaard

If this guy is pitching in the series, he’ll always be on a watch-list.

It’s just always a show to see Syndergaard on the mound. It’s an event to see the surprise Cy Young Award candidate dominate at such a young age, 23.

Mentioned above, he struck out the Royals – who never K – nine times over six powerful innings last week.

This time around, he gets the Miami Marlins team that is teetering on the borderline of bad and mediocre.

Michael Conforto 

The Mets No. 3 hitter of the future is going have a helluva year.

He easily has the best approach at the plate for any of New York’s bats, one through nine, and, like Syndergaard, he’s performing at such a young age as well. Currently, his on-base percentage is at .421, a number that will only go up from here.

Lest we forget, this kid loves to go fishing for Marlins. The left fielder hit the first (of many) career home runs down in Miami.

Jeremy Fialkow was born and raised in Miami, FLA, but currently studies at the University of Maryland. When he's not studying hard, he can be found supporting his sometimes hopeless NY teams: Knicks, Mets, Jets, and Isles. Your sympathy is appreciated.
