New York Mets are ready to dominate in 2011 World Series
By Richard Heaton
Last night, the Mets signed Jose Bautista to a one year deal. With Bautista and the rest of the gang, this team will definitely win the 2011 World Series.
The New York Mets have built a team perfectly capable of destroying the opposition. In 2011 that is. With the signing of Jose Bautista, the 2011 Mets are unstoppable.
The 2018 Mets? Forget about it! The current roster is all you need for the team to take down the Cardinals and Rangers.
Jose Bautista and Adrian Gonzalez are just the tip of the iceberg.
Bautista alone is a beast. He hits 43 home runs and drives in 103 runs. He also goes on to hit .302, the first time in his career that he ever hit higher than .275. His 132 walks are also really impressive.

Gonzalez is also in a league of his own. You could not keep this man off base, he hit a career-best .338 and broke his career record for hits by more than 30, with 213. While he does slack in home runs, he still hits 27 and drives in nearly 120 runs. He also goes on to score 108 runs.
Oh boy, Jose Reyes is hating the time of his life. His .337 batting average was his highest in years and was good enough to win the batting title. His speed is still impressive as he stole 39 bases and hit 16 triples. The 28-year-old is expected to have many more impressive seasons like this one.
Jay Bruce is having a career year as well as he made it to his first all-star game by hitting .256/32/97. He hit exactly 100 home runs during his first four seasons and will hit many more.
Similar to Bruce, 25-year-old Asdrubal Cabrera is also making his first all-star appearance. He hit 25 home runs in 667 plate appearances after hitting just 18 in his first 1610.
In the rotation, we have workhorse Jason Vargas. He threw more than 190 innings for the second season in a row and won ten games for the first time in his career.
Jerry Blevins is also having a great season. His 2.86 ERA is the lowest of his career and he hasn’t given up a single run in September, proving that he’s ready for October baseball.
