Brodie Van Wagenen challenges rest of NL East after adding Jed Lowrie on two-year deal

NEW YORK — Brodie Van Wagenen certainly does not lack confidence.

The Mets general manager said last month he believes the Mets are the division favorites, and that stance hasn’t softened a month later, especially after adding All-Star infielder Jed Lowrie on a two-year, $20-million deal.

“We are a good team, We are a complete team, we are a balanced team. We’ve got veterans, we’ve got youth, we’ve got a hunger and desire to win and I look forward to showing people we’re a team to be reckoned with,” Van Wagenen said. “Let’s not be shy about wanting to be the best and I fully expect us to be competitive and be a winning team. Our goal is to win a championship and it starts with the division so come get us.”

Nothing could possibly go wrong here!
