You read that right. I said the team has potential.
You see, the 2009 team did something so epic that I doubt it can be topped. I mean, to top the 2009 team, the whole 2010 team would have to get hurt, including Luis Castillo AND Daniel Murphy. And David Wright would have to miss significant playing time. And I don't forsee a whole team getting hurt two years in a row. Although losing Carlos Beltran got us off to a solid start.
Okay, so the 2010 team has no pitching, no viable options at catcher and first base (but give Murph time), and a huge defensive hole in centerfield, but 2009 will not be repeated.
I don't know what's gotten into me, maybe because it's pitchers and catchers getting so close, but 2010 is a fresh slate for the Metsies. Hopefully they don't blow it.
What do you guys think?
