FiveThirtyEight has already gone from projecting the Mets to win 79 games on March 28 with a 24% chance to make the playoffs (same record and playoff chance as the Braves) to winning 88 with a 52% chance to make the playoffs. I still wouldn't be shocked if Thor, deGrom, Harvey, Matz, and Wheeler all blow out their respective UCLs and they lose 90 games, but if this rotation is healthy they're going to win a lot of games.

If I were Alderson I'd be trying to pry Realmuto from the Marlins ASAP.

I hate to say it, but this is already a little nerve-wracking.

I will say this, though, I think it's worth a gamble to give up a prospect or three and trade for a catcher NOW rather than later. I think it's been shown that this year can be the year for a run. YMMV

What the hell is Wilson Ramos doing on the Rays? Free Wilson Ramos. The Mets could certainly use him.

Wait til James Comey sabotages the team in August tho

Comey will wait until the final, decisive games in October, and then come out afterwards and say "whoops, my bad, nothing actually here."
