The New York Mets are hoping for the best from Wilson Ramos in 2019. We’ll look over that scenario and the worst case of what could occur.

Have the New York Mets finally found the catching help they haven’t had for the last decade? Obviously, Wilson Ramos will not be around forever. However, if he can give them some good years during the time he does spend in New York, the deal is a major success.

Ramos joins the Mets with some lofty expectations. Nobody is demanding an All-Star selection, MVP acknowledgment, or even a career-year. We just want stability. We want better offense, improved defense, and someone who can stay healthy.

It’s in that final area Ramos has the most question marks. He is not someone who has escaped the injury bug during his MLB career. His fortunes will need to change in order to put together a full year in 2019.

Ramos could give the Mets a really good year in 2019 or possibly a miserable one. He’s a perfect guy to review in a best case and worst case scenario piece. In his career, he has done both.

There have been years where Ramos didn’t look like anything more than a backup catcher. In more recent seasons, he has been one of the most productive at the plate among all catchers.

Whether he sinks or swims with the Mets, he’s going to suit up behind the dish for them more than anyone else in the coming year. Let’s go into some specifics into what the best and worst case scenarios may look like for this veteran backstop.

I’m crossing my fingers it’s a lot more of the former.
