Michael and I have spoken about this for the past two years and we are both on the same page. This team will become a playoff contender in 2014 and one of a hand full of teams that will be projected to play in the 2015 World Series, regardless of who plays in their outfield. This is a team being built around top pitching, some of which won’t arrive until 2015. The Dickey deal may go down in history as the top ever made by the Mets.
The Mets did make a mistake on this one, but every team makes them once in awhile. Right now, with the current outfield situation, Mets writers are reaching back and telling great stories about past outfielders that roamed Shea Stadium. Me? To be honest, if I could I would switch current teams/countries with the current projected opening day Mets outfield and give Lastings Milledge, Carlos Gomez, and Fernando Martinez another go.
