This has to be the most ridiculous post I have come across in my life...
yes, your well thought out reasons for disagreeing have convinced me I was in error. I guess you are correct... the Mets do have the best lineup in baseball and all of the players i mentioned will probably suddenly explode into career years like everyone seems to be predicting. Lo Duca will post a .850 OPS and become a great hitting C, Floyd will be healthy and mash 40 HR's. Beltran will become a 40/40 guys like some predict and Reyes will get it and post a .350+ OPS.
You have convinced me with your great debating skills, thanks for that.
Might I ask who is predicting these numbers? Ive yet to read predictions of Floyd hitting 40 this yr... nor beltran going 40/40 this season... maaaybe, just maybe your referring to their once projected ceilings at one point in time. but theres absolutely noone in their right mind making these lude predictions. realistically...
reyes will swipe 65-70 bases with a .320 obp, not terribly great but an improvement, remember hes 23
loduca will bat a solid .290 and continue to do the little things like advance reyes for the big boys... maybe hell even knock out 10 hrs and a modest 50 ribs is duable
beltran wont go 40/40... but is 30/30 out of the question? certainly not, remember guys, he did go 24-101-31, 29-105-35, 26-100-41, and 38-104-45... all in consecutive seasons b4 his terrible yr lastyr... now the pre-met 40/40 predictions may get laughed at now, but looking at that stat line, proper extrapolation would definetely land you in the 40/40 realm, but lets just go 30-100-30 and shush the critics
delgado should be in store for a nice 35-40 hr with about 115 rbis, and a .300 avg
wright will have another big yr at about 30-35 hrs, 110 rbis, 15 sbs, and roughly .310 avg
floyd can have a modest 20-25 hr, 70-80 rbi, .270 avg yr n fit in nice as a number 6 hitter
nady will look at similar numbers as mentioned about with a higher batting avg
anderson hernandez can do what he does on defense and just get the little things done one offense, clear the pitchers spot, advance runners, etc... remember again, nl teams dont hinge their success on their defensive 2nd baseman hitting number 8
these projections arent well thought out, not biased, and ive had my bold predictions shattered many times in the last 5 seasons... honestly, with these numbers, id have to say one of the top offenses in the NL for sure! and id like to say these are middle of the pack predictions, as i could see bigger numbers, but for arguments sake... prove me wrong
ps. dont tell me reyes will only swipe 63, not 65, or beltran will go 28-95-30... i mean prove me Wrong!
