The New York Mets will face five critical challenges this offseason to open the new Steve Cohen era of baseball in Queens.
The New York Mets are set out for an interesting offseason this winter with new owner Steve Cohen taking control of the reigns and a wide net of sweeping changes expected throughout the organization. With Mets fans already looking towards the start of the offseason as a dawn of a new era and excitement mounting by the day, there are certainly several challenges the franchise will face this winter when remolding the organization for the better.
The Mets ended the 2020 abbreviated season with quite a few questions surrounding the organization that will challenge not only Steve Cohen but also new Team President Sandy Alderson, as well as whoever may be sitting in the General Manager chair this winter.
This is a ballclub that is not too far away from being a legitimate playoff contender and this upcoming offseason may be one of the most important offseasons in recent memory in regards to building a team with sustainable success for the future seasons to come.
The Amazins’ will face several challenges this winter to continue building off of the young nucleus of players they have developed, maximizing the remaining years of Jacob deGrom’s prime, as well as bringing in pieces to the ballclub that will allow the team to reach its full potential and shore up the flaws that cost the club an opportunity at the postseason.
Due to these obstacles that the Mets will be looking towards, I’ve outlined the five biggest challenges that the organization will be facing head on this offseason.
