2015 Mets Staff and Community Predictions Thread

collins harvey wright

With Spring Training officially wrapped up and the 2015 season set to begin, now would be the perfect time for everyone to state their 2015 predictions.

Why leave all the fun of predicting how our players and team performs to the beat writers and the “experts”? In the time that I have spent reading and interacting with the staff and members of MMO, I am convinced that many of you are just as knowledgeable if not more informed than the ones who are paid to cover the team.

Quite a few of you responded to user Schadenfreudianslip’s comment on creating a prediction thread the other day so let this be the official place for all of you to share your forecasts. It doesn’t matter if they are based off statistics, gut feelings or voodoo dolls, just tell us what you anticipate for the upcoming season so you can bask in the glory when they come true and say “I told you so” or get put to shame as your prophecies start to look silly.

We asked some of our team members for their thoughts on the following. Here are their responses.

  7. Team Leader (ERA) – Not sure but the team ERA will be under 3.50
  8. Most disappointing player – I don’t see any major disappointments but I am worried about Jon Niese getting injured

Other Thoughts – Colon gets moved to the pen at some point. Steven Matz becomes a top 25 prospect. If the Mets do not make the playoffs or lose a wild card game, Terry Collins will not be back next year.

Now let’s see what you can do, and be bold with your predictions! But just beware that anything you say here can and will be used against you in the court of public opinion as the season progresses.

I am a 27 year old Queens native and Mets fan since the days of Alfonzo and Piazza. Jay Payton was my first favorite player. Scott Kazmir being traded still haunts me at night.
