Just the Mets, just the Mets. Step right up and predict the Mets:
1--Mets record for 2015
2--Where the Mets will finish in the NL East
3--Whether the Mets will make the playoffs and if so, how far they will go.

To encourage more participation, I'm posting this a week earlier than last year. As always, don't be a J.J. Putz and write "162-0."

I'm not JJ Putz but I'm constitutionally unable in March to write down anything but my brightest scenario no matter how flawed the team.

102-60, 1st place, all the way!!!

(92-70 is more like it, but they also go all the way in that scenario too)
Let me tell you something: I have a big set of balls.

84-78. Just good enough to make the playoffs. Not yet good enough to win the World Series.
In running, it doesn't matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, "I have finished." There is a lot of satisfaction in that - Fred Lebow

82-80. No playoffs. Outside of starting pitching, this team has no depth. Better luck next year.

I will say that, while I'm sticking with my 84 win prediction, the Mets offense has been very impressive this spring. Spring stats don't mean much to me, but if the guys can bring the bats north and be as consistent as they have been over the past three weeks for long stretches of this season...then the sky is the limit.

I thought so, but I can't find it. I'm probably going to
contradict my dire prediction from earlier, but I've gotten
a jolt of optimism this spring.
