The signings of Chris Young, Curtis Granderson, and Bartolo Colon provide a clearer view into what will ultimately be the Mets 2014 squad. Barring an unlikely trade for a high-profile shortstop or outfielder, these are likely to be the biggest additions to the roster before next season. The outfield has markedly improved from what it was going into the 2013 season, though it remains to be seen whether it can replace Marlon Byrd‘s surprise 2013 performance. Shortstop and first base are still big question marks, though, and the bullpen still needs some additions. That being said, the success of the 2014 Mets will depend heavily on the contributions of rookies, second-year players, and various other youngsters. Of course the same could be said about the 2013 team, but realistically expectations are much higher for next season. The rotation looks to be a strength for the team even without Matt Harvey. Still, that success will be largely measured by whether or not Zack Wheeler can continue
