As Promised, The Mets Have Spent Money This Winter
The line-up is a big if, but it has the potential to be fairly solid. You know what you're going to get from Wright, Granderson, Murphy and Young. The success of this team is going to come down to the development of Travis d'Arnaud, Juan Legares and whoever is playing first base next season. If d'Arnaud develops into the player he is projected to be, and Legares improves upon what he did last season, then that really changes the complexion of this line-up. You really need Duda or Davis to wake the hell up.
The Mets still have some glaring holes. Shortstop is still very uncertain. The really lack solid arms in the bullpen. The Mets may not have another dime to spend this off season. But it doesn't matter. They have made some acquisitions and put themselves in position to be more competitive in 2014. Maybe this will lead to more revenue, and then more money can be spent to keep building this team for the future. Either way, I'm just happy they're spending again
