Am I crazy?..

Or do the mets have a legitimate chance of being a solid ball-club this year? Say what you want about the division, but that's not what I am talking about. I am talking about the mets and the squad they will be running out there in the coming months. I could be overly optimistic but I gotta feelin' (blackeye pea's music drops).


Could it just be? Do we have a solid young lineup? Ike, Wright, and Duda are poised for solid years by all accounts with Ike maybe outperforming everyone in the group. Then you have your what if guys like bay, murphy, tejada. Followed by some larger question marks in thole and torres. But this doesnt sound so bad to me:

1.torres/Tejada 2. Murphy 3. D Wright 4. IKE 5. Duda 6. Bay 7. torres/tejada 8. thole 9. Pitcher

Any what do we have a deep bullpen now? Three closerish types rauch, parnell, and franky. Set up with beato,ramirez and byrdak. SOLID bullpen.

Starting staff has more questions than answers but could have a few surprises in store for 2012. Could Santana be back to Santana? Can Dickey keep it going? Is Niese able to become they guy that he shows in flashes? GEE get off to a start like he did last year? Pelfry not be a total trainwreck?

Am I crazy? Could this be a surprising year for the mets? Or is this just the reoccurring tradition that happens in every spring?
