2010 Predictions

Posted on April 5, 2010 by


As I write this Opening Day is already underway. However, I have the MLB.tv DVR ready and I have yet to watch any of the action. So, here are my predictions for the 2010 New York Mets:

Josh Thole comes up before September to be the everyday catcher.

Daniel Murphy comes back to post an OPS of .825 or above.

Luis Castillo suffers very little or no falloff from 2009, again posting a wOBA of .330 or above.

David Wright tops 25 HR

Jose Reyes plays in 140 games

Jason Bay gets 110 RBIs

Carlos Beltran comes back by May 15th

Jeff Francoeur reaches 20 HR for the first time since 2006

Johan Santana makes the All-Star team

John Maine pitches over 175 IP

Mike Pelfrey gets sent to the bullpen

Jon Niese wins the second most games on the staff.

Oliver Perez has an ERA under 4.50

Francisco Rodriguez saves 40 games

Jenrry Mejia gets sent back to the minors and goes back to being a SP

What are your predictions for the 2010 season?
