Important pending free agents
Similar to the Robinson Cano situation and how his money will be back on the books next season, the Mets run into the problem of a few important soon-to-be free agents on their roster. Michael Conforto, Marcus Stroman, and Noah Syndergaard are all set to be free agents following the 2021 season and will more than likely see a pretty significant pay raise.
The likelihood of bringing back all three is low, so making a push this season is even all that more important. Although Conforto and Syndergaard have not had big impacts this season due to injury, they are key pieces to the team when healthy and they are both set to return at some point during the season.
Special feeling early on in Queens
It is no secret the Mets have had both an interesting but also exciting season so far. They lost a good chunk of their starting lineup to injury and then lost a large majority of their bench players who were filling in. They even lost a couple of their third-string players to make matters more interesting.
Despite the injury bug catching almost everyone on the roster, the Mets have still found ways to win no matter who is on the field. In the past couple of seasons, it seemed like the team would completely fall apart when two or three guys would go on the injured list, now the Mets find a way no matter who is on the field.
This season has a little bit of a different feel to it so far. Is it the fact we have a full baseball season for the first time since 2019? We have fans in the crowd for the first time since 2019? Or is this Mets team actually special and they should make that push for a potential 2021 World Series title?
Only time will tell what the true answer is, but the Mets should take into consideration all the above factors and go all-in on making a serious run and hopefully bring back a Championship to Queens in 2021.
