The Mets need Francisco Lindor and Pete Alonso to replicate their stellar seasons and get help from others

Right now, the Mets have two solidified offensive stars who are two of the best in the MLB. Francisco Lindor became the first Mets' shortsop ever to reach the 30/30 mark while also leading all shortstops in RBI. Alonso, on the other hand, hit 46 home runs along with 118 RBI, which led the team.

Offensively, these are the two best players on the team, and in order for the Mets to have a more successful season next year, it starts with them replicating these seasons. While there are questions around Alonso's future, David Stearns said he expects him to be on the roster come Opening Day. Alonso and Lindor should be cornerstones for the Mets for years to come.

Moreover, the Mets need other players to have above average seasons. Whether it is Jeff McNeil, Brandon Nimmo or someone else, there needs to be offensive production outside of Alonso and Lindor. Maybe Starling Marte can have a bounceback year? Don't count on it, but the Mets need some outside production that does not come from their stars.

Offensively, there is another way the Mets can get some production that is not from their veterans.
