The 2017 New York Mets are showing to be what you thought they are : built on power- both offensively and defensively- the team relies on power arms and power bats. Yoenis Cespedes 3 homer game Tuesday night highlighted the teams opening 10 days , that has seen the big 3 rotation members- Noah Syndergaard, Jacob deGrom and Matt Harvey- all pitch great. Offensively, 4 team wide keys- RF Jay Bruce, C Travis D’Arnaud, OF Michael Conforto and 1B Lucas Duda- all look good and the bullpen ,minus all star Jeurys Familia, has maintained all their leads and save opportunities with Fernando Salas and Addison Reed flourishing late in the 8th and 9th innings. Both have closed in them major leagues for other clubs, quality depth, moves by Mets management led by GM Sandy Alderson.

Mets Notes: Captain and 3B David Wright(Shoulder) has begun throwing but at best, he could return sometime late May or early June. Long process for #5. Get well, David…. Meanwhile, Cf Juan Lagares(Left Oblique) could rejoin the team as soon as Thursday and has looked good in his minor league rehab assignment… Jose Reyes is off to a 2 for 33 start (.061) and has been moved down the order. Keep an eye on veteran major league 3B , say Todd Frazier from the Chicago White Sox, as a rental option. This team is good enough to win the World Series and cannot have ANY position be a sink hole.
