Below are 25 questions that can all be answered with a simple YES/NO (10), OVER/UNDER (10), or an EITHER/OR between two players (5) - so no 'Only ifs', or 'Yeah buts' allowed.
Obviously (at least I think it's obvious) the results are only those which are tallied with the 2015 NYM. No minor league numbers and/or those with other clubs this season count towards any totals.

If you choose to participate, answer all 25 and I'll tally the results then do my best to keep this from being forgotten at the end of the regular season at which point we'll reexamine it for the purpose of ridiculing the losers seeing whose picks were most accurate.
All entries due by the end of Sunday, April 5

Part 1: YES or NO
1) Curtis Granderson leads the club in HRs? (any ties count as a win for the YES answers)
2) Jenrry Mejia leads in saves? (same deal if there's a tie)

Will be on the team's ML roster (or DL) the entire season?
3) Dillon Gee
4) Bartolo Colon
5) Travis d'Arnaud
6) Anthony Recker
7) Daniel Murphy
8) Ruben Tejada
9) Jonathon Niese
10) Terry Collins (has to be field manager for a YES to count - if demoted but stays in the org with a "special assistant" title or other such nonsense it doesn't count)

Part 2: OVER/UNDER
11) Lucas Duda -- 29.5 HRs
12) Michael Cuddyer -- 119.5 Starts
13) Jenrry Mejia -- 19.5 Saves
14) Wilmer Flores -- 449.5 PAs
15) Bartolo Colon -- 17.5 Starts
16) David Wright -- 21.5 HRs (22 or more would surpass Straw's club record)
17) Kirk Nieuwenhuis -- 199.5 PAs
18) Noah Syndergaard -- 19.5 ML Starts
19) Steven Matz -- 9.5 ML Starts
20) Brandon Nimmo - 49.5 ML PAs

EITHER/OR - simply name one player or the other in each comparison
21) More PAs w/2015 NYM: Murphy or Herrera?
22) More PAs: Nieuwenhuis or Mayberry?
23) More PAs: d'Arnaud or Plawecki?
24) More Saves: Parnell or Familia?
25) More IPs: Gilmartin or Leathersich?

I believe that someday I will punch that arrogant foreman at the plant square on his fat nose; that I will get in the last word with my wife; that I will win the Irish sweepstakes; that the Mets will start a winning streak.

Yes, I will tally no results until next Sunday night. Let's say a 9 PM EDT deadline on 4/5.
