Duda’s Boots of Lead

With arguably the worst starting outfield (at the moment) in the majors, it’s hard to envision a scenario where the Mets can compete unless a variety of absurdly unlikely developments take hold. Not only is our current crop of outfielders ill-disposed to covering a larger field with unusual dimensions, they are exceptionally vulnerable to lefties. […]
