The Rotoprofessor recently asked me to contribute to his rankings site. He has a series where he has bloggers contribute a piece on each team in the majors, looking for key story lines to follow for the upcoming season. Here’s a snippet on my piece for the Mets: 5) Did Dillon Gee turn the corner in 2012? The pitcher of record in the July 7 game mentioned above, it was the last game of the year for Gee who sat out the rest of the season with a damaged artery in his shoulder. In his last 10 games Gee tossed nine Quality Starts and the Mets missed him more than anyone would have imagined. He took a big leap forward in 2012, most notably in his strikeout rate. He posted a 7.96 K/9, which led to a 3.54 xFIP. If Gee can turn in those types of numbers over a full season it will go a long way in making up for the loss of R.A. Dickey.
