The New York Mets are a constant punching bag (but sometimes good guys) in the MLB world. But that could soon change.

With a new owner, Steve Cohen, the team is poised to spend on free agents and retain their young talent. They’ve already jumped out to a 20-10 record (through games concluded on May 9)—good for the most wins in the NL and tied for the most in MLB.


Highly coveted free agent pitcher Max Scherzer will anchor the rotation, while Chris Bassitt, Carlos Carrasco, Taijuan Walker and Tylor Megill will fill out the rest.

First baseman Pete Alonso will look to keep slugging following his car accident this spring, while shortstop Francisco Lindor will look to have a better season than last year. Starling Marte, Brandon Nimmo and Mark Canha will patrol the outfield.

The Mets opened their season with four in Washington (3-1) and will close the first half with four in Chicago against the Cubs. Their second half opens with three at home against San Diego and two against the Yankees. The 2022 campaign concludes with three at home against the Nats.
