MMO’s Final Four Predictions

With Matt Harvey being a former Tar Heel, and David Wright‘s brother having been a student at Virginia Tech, this Mets team has connections to the NCAA Tournament even if Todd Frazier (Rutgers) and Michael Conforto (Oregon) are looking for another team to root for this year.
