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.
