Every season it seems the Marlins are the thorn in the side of the Mets. However, this year it’ll be the Atlanta Braves. The Braves quietly improved this offseason and have a very bright future.
I think with the veterans of Bartolo Colon, Brandon Phillips, and Matt Kemp and the young guys of Dansby Swanson and Ender Inciarte, the Braves will be an annoyance to the Mets.
The Braves won’t be near the playoffs, they’ll be one of those quiet teams trying to drift towards the second Wild Card spot, similar to the Mariners at the end of last year
Also, I think it’s pretty obvious and predictable that Bartolo is going to dice up the Mets all year.
