What Went Right:
Curtis Granderson had a much needed bounce back season. Yoenis Cespedes was amazing after the Mets acquired him at the trade deadline.
What really went right last year for the Mets though, was their young rotation. DeGrom, Syndergaard, and Harvey made for a great trio and really carried this team to the playoffs.
What Went Wrong:
Michael Cuddyer was one of the worst free agent signings of all time. The Mets gave up their first round pick to sign him and he gave them nothing in return. Then he retired. Reliever Jennry Mejia was supposed to be a key part of the bullpen but he got suspended. He’s suspended again now, this time for life.
Player to Watch?:
David Wright got hurt and missed most of the year. He got healthy before the end of the season and did contribute towards the Mets playoff run.
There’s Always Next Year:
The Mets rotation will be loaded once again. Cespedes is coming back. Another run at the World Series is realistic.
How Did We Do:
Only four games off. That’s better than most other predictions about the Mets last season.
