The Mets player that’s most likely to disappoint will be Asdrubal Cabrera. The Mets got a steal with Cabrera last season.

He had his best batting average since 2009, the second highest home run total of his career, and was mostly healthy besides a bum knee towards the end of the season. He also provided stellar defense, only committing seven errors.

He was a huge factor for the Mets, but considering all of those numbers and how well he played, I don’t expect him to do it again. I think he’ll be okay, don’t get me wrong, I just think he set a very high bar for himself and won’t be able to match it. Once he played like that once, Mets fans will be expecting it again.
