Mets: Three minds who can help them win the 2020 World Series
By Carlee Marie Soto
The 2020 New York Mets could be headed to the World Series thanks to these three baseball minds coming together.
There are high hopes for the New York Mets despite the drama. The scandalous offseason left chipped teeth. How deep will this team duke it out in the 2020 rounds?
Well, a lot will depend on the obvious such as the fortitude of the players, their action plans, and their karma. The sagas from the next MLB reports loom. A commitment to sensible baseball will be key.
The most important lock-in for the Mets will be these three minds effectively collaborating.
Director of High Performance, Jim Cavallini
An enhancement to the Mets cog is their player data-mining regime. Jim Cavallini is trained in the EXOS methodology. His plan began implementation in 2018 to become proactive against injuries. The rigorous approach gets authentic data if utilized with fidelity.
The Mets High Performance team will check a player’s sleep, food, water intake, and urine tints. They will administer daily surveys that will create a database of care. No slacking and Cavallini’s team can write up an Individual Educational Plan for the body. No privacy, but the Mets embrace the fact that a player’s body is their money and that the more knowledge you have, the more solutions for triage in order to have game advantages.
Cavallini has two years of data on his team, his equipment, his strategies, and his techniques that are best reflected to retain and heal players. If players analyze untapped stats, then a new frontier awaits for baseball history. The team may come across undiscovered connections and valuable info that can be outfitted for the field. Advantage: BIG DATA
Manager, Luis Rojas
Luis Rojas is a reserved man. He listens before reacting. Born into baseball. Grown up imbedded in the game. Quality control educated. Rojas has a solid foundation from building deep roots into the Mets system.
Most of the roster has trained with him. Having this internal coach rise to the managerial task was divine intervention, instead of a big name, famed face like Carlos Beltran; Rojas is deserving of the position because of long earned respect.
In this current time when baseball is unbalanced and has just been plain wrong, Rojas can be looked at as a rock for the Mets club. He is a man aware that his expressed feelings will manifest. He is protective of the Mets uniform. Also, his father is in the watchtower with fortifying feedback. ADVANTAGE: LOYALTY
Pitching Coach, Jeremy Hefner
The game begins and ends with pitching. Pitchers are a varied, but delicate menagerie of folks. Injury wrecks the scene, Jeremy Hefner knows. Hefner, a man who knows the Citi mound, can stay on the rails with his assets.
The Mets have a sketched foreshadow to potential inner rotation competition, rather than collaboration. All of the competitors set to start the mound this year are fierce. A script has been written for two, one-year, prove it guys: Rick Porcello and Michael Wacha, a spitfire: Marcus Stroman, the 2X top-dog: Jacob deGrom, a Norse God: Noah Syndergaard, and the lefty: Steven Matz. Starting pitching needs to be figured out before the tone turns to unspoken rivalry.
Hefner is a celebrated father of four kids under the age of 10. He is a family man, mentally trained to be a peacemaker between personalities. Pitching is the Alpha and Omega in baseball. Hefner and Rojas will write the Mets tome in tandem. ADVANTAGE: KIDS
Maybe this list isn’t the jam for your sticky peanut butterball; however, it’s always worth the knowledge to network the experts that hover around great coaches. Men of this caliber do not get there alone.
