The New York Mets are arguably coming off of one of their best offseasons in team history, which has heightened the expectations for this ballclub unlike any we have seen since probably the 2006 season.

The front office has made quite the transformation of the organization by turning over around half of their 40-man roster with additions such as shortstop Francisco Lindor, catcher James McCann, starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco, among others. The collective amount of depth that also has been acquired this winter by the front office can not be understated in any sense.

The Mets have been treated as the media darling of the National League East in large part due to their triumphant winter, and as evidence by PECOTA’s projections of the Mets finishing in first place in the National League East with over 90 wins. MLB.com has also ranked the Mets as the number five team in baseball in their initial Power Rankings for 2021.

Despite the rather strong offseason for the New York Mets this winter, there are still some questions on the roster that need answers this spring.

But there are still a few questions that surround the team as we approach Opening Day. Make no mistake the questions that remain are not a knock in any sense of how well this team has been put together by the front office this offseason.

There is no team currently in Major League Baseball that is without flaws this spring. We also should remember that baseball is a marathon and not a sprint, which allows the Mets time to figure out the answers to the questions that remain over the course of the next month.
Let’s now dive into the top three burning questions that face the Mets this spring and evaluating all of the factors that could play into the answers to these questions.
