Hope springs eternal in the human breast;
Man never is, but always to be blessed:
The soul, uneasy and confined from home,
Rests and expatiates in a life to come.
– Alexander Pope, An Essay on Man
2013 is winding down. The Mets have proven things this year to their fans and rivals:
Matt Harvey is an Ace
The Met’s have a wealth of internal pitching talent
David Wright can be a leader
Marlon Byrd had something left in the tank
NEVER expect a game to last only 9 innings
With 2014 on the horizon there are some considerable questions to answer:
Will the Mets spend on Free Agents (and risk draft picks in compensation)?
How can you fit Wilmer Flores into the lineup with a healthy David Wright?
What the heck happened to the Ike Davis we all fell in love with?
Is Terry Collins worth an extension?
Can the Met farm system develop a single MLB level outfielder?
The thing that I’d like everyone to look at instead is the names of some Met prospects who might factor into 2014’s success. Hope...
