Mets Season Review
He’s a very easy target, but the fault goes far beyond a guy making 5 appearances.
The Mets were lost without their ace.
Despite being one of the most productive offensive players in the game over the past few seasons, McNeil provided little offensive value to the Mets this year.
The righty was bothered by a hand injury through much of the season.
Walker made the All-Star team for the first time in his major league career. Alas, there was an entire second half of baseball to play after that.
Like much of the 2021 Mets bullpen, he had his rough patches, but was otherwise reliable.
The always smiling centerfielder was one of the Mets’ best offensive players when healthy.
Some great starts and some terrible starts combined for a mediocre result.
Because of his prodigious rookie year in 2019, one could even argue he was probably underrated this season.
McKinney played for 3 different teams this year, and the Mets were the only one he was actually productive for.
Lindor struggled mightily at the plate early but recovered.
May had a solid season out of the bullpen while also continuing his heavy online presence.
In other words, he was Javier Báez.
Stroman fought vibe vampires and poo poo takes to put together one of the best seasons of his career.
Though his season was cut short, Smith showed a lot of potential.
The Mets lost the lefty in June after he underwent Tommy John surgery.
Guillorme played well when not hurt
The catcher made his mark early in the season during the time when the Bench Mob ran things.
Familia pitched better than he has in years with one big exception
His offense was as advertised—which is to say, non-existent—but his defense was solid.
Conforto’s possible swan song in New York was extremely out of key.
