They’re Back!The return of Harvey, deGrom, Matz and possibly Wheeler should make Mets fans giddy. A rotation of that caliber could do some historic things. This is exactly what Alderson envisioned when he assembled it. Injuries have derailed the plan a bit, but if this unit stays healthy, look out.
The return of key position players should provide experience, leadership and depth, as Wright, Walker and Lucas Duda will enter the season on time with a full Spring Training. Especially getting ‘The Captain’ back will provide a spark that was missing for a majority of last season.
When healthy, this team has the perfect mix of experience and youth to make another run the World Series. On the other hand, at $103 million on the books, the Mets may have some cash to splash on depth, perhaps for a player looking for a new home.
