It is always fun to predict things for the upcoming season and look back at the end of the season to see how you did. The New York Mets had one of their best offseasons in recent years and have a pretty deep roster now as a result.

You can make a legitimate argument for just about every starting player on the team and multiple pitchers on why they can and should make the All-Star team this season.

The Mets sent three of their players to the All-Star game in 2019 which was the most recent one with the 2020 season not having one. The 2021 season is shaping up well as that three from 2019 looks like it can and likely will be squashed relatively easily.

The Mets have a solid chance of sending multiple players to the 2021 All-Star game.

With the Mets having an All-Star caliber lineup looking up and down the roster, it brings a nice feeling to Queens for the first time in a long time. Although the Mets have had some strong players in recent years and have gone on some impressive runs, it has been a while since the Mets have had a roster this deep.

Let’s get into the ranking tiers and see what odds Mets players have of making the 2021 All-Star team.

SureFire Bet

Looking up and down the roster, the Mets have a deep roster for the first time in quite some time, and they still only have two guys who are surefire bets to be at the mid-summer classic. The man who is aging like a fine wine as he has won the Cy Young award in two of the last three seasons and finished third last year, while also being named to the All-Star team in those Cy Young seasons (easily would have made it last season as well if there was one) in Jacob deGrom is a safe bet to make.

Many experts around the league do not see deGrom slowing down anytime soon as they have him winning the Cy Young award this season or at the very least a finalist, so for him to make the All-Star team is pretty much a guarantee at this point. The only question at this point is if deGrom will be on the mound to start the game.

The other man who is essentially a guarantee is the man himself Mr. Smile, Francisco Lindor. Lindor is one of the top players in all of baseball and has made the All-Star team in four out of his six seasons, the two he did not were his rookie season and the shortened 2020 season where there was not an All-Star game.

Despite taking a minor step back in 2020, Lindor is still looked at as a top player in the league and a complete game-changer. Lindor is a safe bet to see suited up at the All-Star come July as he has been a regular there in his career and nothing is expected to change anytime soon.
