NEW YORK METS – The “All Of The Good And Bad Things About Vanilla Ice Cream” Club
Vanilla ice cream is solid. It’s also not very exciting. These are your 2015 Mets. They will pitch early, and probably pitch more late, once Noah Syndergaard shows up to join Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler and Jacob deGrom. That said, they have done little else to improve their club, with only Michael Cuddyer showing up to join the cause. There are few indispensable position players, perhaps Lucas Duda, David Wright and Juan Lagares. Their starting rotation depth is also quite good, with Dillon Gee the likely 6th starter at this point. This is the living embodiment of a .500 club, with their floor high and their ceiling quite low. The fun will start once the young guns are all in place, and the club once again decides to throw some financial might around to fortify the offense.
