The New York Mets franchise has a lot of buzz around it as we head towards the beginning of the 2021 season. That buzz is rightfully justified as this team is very well equipped to not only contend for the playoffs but also contend for a National League title.
The offseason that the Mets have had is one of the best I have seen and the team that will soon take the field at the beginning of April will be the best team they have had on paper since 2006.
Paper teams are only as good as the paper they are written on and in order for the Mets to have the type of season all fans think they can have they must go play the games. Additionally, the players need to play well and with playing well comes potential All-Star game selections and appearances.
With the way this Mets team is constructed, they could be heavily represented this coming July down in Atlanta.
This Mets team has some players that have made the All-Star game in the past and could make it again in 2021 if things break right. Players like Jacob deGrom, Michael Conforto, Francisco Lindor, and Marcus Stroman are a few players that have been to the Mid-Summer Classic in the past that would be most fans guess as to who could represent the team in Mid-July.
Those are all good guesses but what about the players who have never made the All-Star team before but who could be a first-time representative for the New York Mets down in Atlanta in 2021?
