The New York Mets approach the start of the season with high expectations. After an offseason of major acquisitions, the time has come to test the roster that, Billy Eppler and the rest of the front office have put together.

Despite some setbacks this spring training, the Mets have a good core of players with the potential to achieve great things. Among the achievable aspects of this season, there are five predictions that we all want to believe will come true this 2023.

1) The New York Mets will win the National League East Division

Following a 101-win season in 2022, the hopes of Mets fans died quickly in the 2022 Wild Card series after a disappointing final week of the regular season. The team with more experience and hunger to win should come more prepared to face a division as competitive as the East of the National League.

The Mets have, in health, one of the best rotations in baseball. Despite losing Edwin Diaz, the bullpen looks solid with plenty of depth options. The lineup, who was top 5 in batting average last year, possesses good contact skills, power, and discipline.

Despite competing in the strongest division in the major leagues, against the Atlanta Braves and the Philadelphia Phillies, the Mets, accompanied by the leadership of Buck Showalter, have what it takes to win the division. Additionally, the arrival of Carlos Beltran can help the team's hitters adjust in times of pressure and losing streaks.

The Mets have the core players and leadership on the field to win the division. Likewise, the commitment shown by Steve Cohen brings peace of mind knowing that the front office has the necessary support for any movement that helps to guarantee this objective. Let's stay positive, winning the division is an achievable goal.
