Mets360 2017 projections: Team wins

We’ve gone through and made predictions for 19 players for the 2017 Mets. Now it’s time to give a forecast for the team as a whole. You thought our individual projections were optimistic? Wait until you get a load of these!

Dalton Allison – Mets win 90 games in a season where Syndergaard, deGrom, and Céspedes participate in the All-Star game. The Mets face the Red Sox in a 1986 World Series rematch, and take home the trophy in seven games.

Joe Barbieri – Win projection 93. Immense pitching depth and rebound years from the likes of Jay Bruce and Lucas Duda help push the Mets back atop the National League East. They won’t be able to get past the Cubs in the postseason, however.

John Fox – Mets win 90 plus games and make the post season but fall to the Cubs in the NLCS. Yoenis Cespedes becomes first Met to win League MVP award.

Charlie Hangley – Mets will win 96 games and the NL East. They will defer the Giants in the NLCS and beat the Cubs in 7 games in the NLCS.

Brian Joura – Mets win 96 games but because of their inability to beat Washington head to head, they once again are the Wild Card team. That’s okay, they beat the Cubs in the NLDS and the Nationals continue their history of being unable to win a playoff series and the Mets cruise from there.

Mike Koehler – An improvement on last year’s injury-riddled effort, the 2017 Mets find enough offense and ride strong pitching depth to finish first in the NL East at 93-69. They feast on the short rotations of the playoffs and battle neck-and-neck with the Cleveland Indians in the World Series.

Matt Netter – Mets win 100+ games and run away with the division and breeze through the playoffs to their first WS ring since 1986.

Rob Rogan – Wins: 94. The Mets ride high on a (mostly) healthy pitching staff to take the NL East. That pitching once again shuts down the Cubs in the NLCS and leads to a 1986 WS rematch with the Red Sox, which the Mets take in six games.

Mike Ryan – 93 wins. The Mets remain fairly healthy as compared to last season, which should lead to 6 extra wins. This should put them in line for the first wild card. They will go as deep in the playoffs as their pitching will carry them.

Chris Walendin – 95 wins – Shockingly, more goes right than wrong on the health front and the Mets ride their top shelf rotation to an NL East pennant.

    Metsies can win 92 games, whether that is enough to unseat the Nats, we’ll see.
    However, Nats did not sign a premium type closer, and they have 3 good starters, not as deep as the Mets. If Mets can beat them head to head, either 9-9 or 10-8, they may get the divsion, not to mention slowing down at least a little bit, our old pal Murph (sheeesh, he killed Mets last year all day long).

    Either way, Mets get in and get to face Cubs again. Pitching vs hitting and Mets win in 7, go on the face a good Indians team, but it’s Metsie time and they win WS with Cespedes WS MVP.

    They have to do it this year ! Too many questions next year and team will be totally different: Duda, Reyes, Cabrera, Walker, Reed, Bruce, Grandy all could be saying bye-bye after this year.

    95 wins, Division Champs, World Series champs. This is a solid team with depth and excellent starting pitching.

      Well, to start with, they said that they picked 7 of the playoff teams correctly. Wasn’t too hard. Dodgers, Cubs, Nationals, Mets, Red Sox, Blue Jays, and Rangers were real longshots!

    My prediction on the Mets is in lockstep with Matt: 104 wins, pitchers healthy all year and dominate, as the Mets lose a chance at the all time record when Collins blows 15 games with his rediculous substitutions and strategy.

    The Cubs win 88 games as the pitching staff comes back down to earth, and they take their division but bow out in the first round. Pundits point to the Indians’ “LOL Lineup” taking the Cubs to seven games and say lack of toughness is their problem.

    The Nationals will have 86 wins due to lack of depth, but can’t say if they make the playoffs or not.

    The Rockies young pitchers hold strong and they are a wildcard team.

        104 wins . . . and he’ll complain about the manager all season long.

          I laughed.

            I understand James’ point, but this leopard can’t change its spots. I was hoping more people would laugh but I promised myself last year that I would lay off him and that lasted about two months. I’ll try to improve.

    I’m surprised I don’t see more reader comments telling us we’re all overly optimistic. My issue with the projections from Steamers, FanGraphs, Vegas odds, USA Today, etc. is that they all get hung up on injuries. First of all, as Brian pointed out, the other 29 teams have the same concerns. Secondly, we won 87 games and made the playoffs despite a ridiculous run of injuries. If we’re even just 50% healthier this year, how can you not peg this team for five more wins?

      Matt, it just doesn’t work that way. This team is not playing against last years teams. The Braves are better. the Phillies are better. We have no idea this mets team will remain healthy, and in fact the odds are it won’t given the number of DL days we see every year. There are a ton of variables and so isolating one as the cause of why a team may win or lose more is overly simplistic.

    I am so opti-METS-tic in 2017!
