New York Mets: New Year’s Resolutions to work on in 2020
By Tatiana Snedeker
A new year brings a new opportunity for the New York Mets to set some personal goals with New Year’s Resolutions.
Every baseball player has their strengths and weaknesses. Yet with a team like the New York Mets, some of these weaknesses have been what set them back from being a contending team in years past.
Going into 2020 with promising acquisitions such as Rick Porcello and Dellin Betances, let’s talk about some New Year’s Resolutions some of our players should be working on.
Where can these individual performers improve so they end up winning a few more games and Mets fans can give up biting their nails?
New York Mets New Year’s Resolutions
Pete Alonso: Buy the whole team cool undershirts to prepare them for when he rips them off.
Robinson Cano: Run.
Jed Lowrie: Did you know if you type in “is Jed” into google search, the first thing to come up is “is Jed Lowrie alive”, I think that explains it. Lowrie’s resolution should be to maybe surpass 10 at-bats? I feel like that’s a reasonable goal.
Amed Rosario: While there is always room for improvement I think that is exactly what he has been doing. Rosario should just keep up the great work because why fix something that isn’t broken.
Jeff McNeil: Vouch to be placed in a more permanent position at third base because I would love to see him shine there as he is a third baseman.
J.D. Davis: J.D. surprised us all in 2019 after having some mediocre seasons 2017 and 2018. When brought up in 2019 we did not expect the rather insane batting that he brought to New York. On the other hand, his fielding was rather disappointing. J.D.’s resolution? Catch the ball.
Dominic Smith: Be able to walk without a scooter all year long.
Brandon Nimmo: Stay a safe distance from the center field wall.
Michael Conforto: Instead of Conforto having a resolution I think that us Mets fans should have a resolution of our own to appreciate him more.
Yoenis Cespedes: Stay off the ranch and on the field.
Wilson Ramos: Hit something that isn’t a ground ball.
Jacob deGrom: Grow out the flow again (we all know we want it).
Noah Syndergaard: Contact Marvel for a cameo.
Jeurys Familia: Have a WHIP sub 1.4
Edwin Diaz: Win.
