7. Noah Syndergaard records his first 200-inning season
Despite proving his dominance in other ways, Noah Syndergaard has yet to record a 200-inning season. His career-high is 183.2 innings, which he recorded in 2016. In order to do well and compete this year, the Mets need a healthy Syndergaard, one who is ready to pitch every five games.
Fans would love for Thor to prove his durability and pitch at least 200 innings this season.
8. Yoenis Cespedes comes back and makes an impact
The New York Mets do not expect Yoenis Cespedes to be ready until August. However, when he returns from his heel surgeries, fans would love to see Cespedes return to be an impact player. Crucial to their 2015 and 2016 playoff teams, Cespedes has the potential to carry a team.
Now, 33-years old and coming off of two heel surgeries, Cespedes’ production is not known. He could come back and return to his high-caliber. Fans would love to see Cespedes make an impact when he rejoins the club in the second half of the season.
9. Jacob deGrom wins another Cy Young
The most exciting part of 2018 for Mets fans was watching Jacob deGrom pitch every five games. His Cy Young season was amazing and kept fans happy even when they missed the playoffs.
Being very possible, fans would be really happy to see deGrom prevail again this season and repeat as Cy Young.
10. Win the National League East
This one might be a little bit of a reach, but this is what everybody wants. The Mets are looking impressive in Spring Training and have hope after reconstructing the roster during the offseason. The Van Wagenen Era is ready to begin. The Mets hope to win the National League East and return to the playoffs for the first time since 2016.
Even with a stacked division, the GM is confident that the team will win the division. Fans would be ecstatic to see the Mets win the National League East in 2019.
