New York Mets 2014 Outlook
February 4, 2014
A year ago, the Mets were one of a handful of teams who struggled to produce hits and were near the bottom of the league in most offensive categories finishing the season with a record of 74-88. The New York Mets have positioned themselves to become a true contender in the MLB in a few years by assembling talent in their farm system which currently ranks 6th in all of baseball. This offseason they signed P Bartolo Colon and OF Curtis Granderson in the hope that he will be able to provide some runs and not rely solely on David Wright. The loss of ace pitcher Matt Harvey to tommy john surgery is a major blow but the Mets will turn to others such as Zack Wheeler, Jon Niese and Dillon Gee to pick up the slack.
However the majority of this season will be spent bringing up and developing their young talent from their farm system. How quickly players such as Wilmer Flores, Rafael Montero and Noah Syndergaard can developed will determine how positive of a season the Mets have, and if all goes according to plan they should contend for one of the Wild Card spots.
New York Mets tickets for the 2014 season are averaging $100 for their home games on the season, very reasonable considering that across town the Yankees are averaging almost double that at $196. It should come as no surprise that the Mets most expensive game of the season comes against the Yankees when they meet in the middle of May which are going for an average of $186 but fans can Get-in to Citi Field for just $59 for this game. The Mets best value of the season is their April 3rd game against division foe the Washington Nationals which is going for as little as just $12 but is averaging $54 per ticket, less than the cheapest ticket to their series against the Yankees.
