Wanted to join a Mets forum for a while, new seasons just started so thought this would be a good a time as any. Starting supporting the Mets during the Mets/Yankees series when I was on holiday in Florida in August 2016.
When I saw Bartolo Colon, a guy who looks like he has no place striking people out (in my own uninformed opinion) pitching like a beast, I loved the guy and started rooting for the mets, and have been since, Sadly for me, Colon left that Summer, but hey-ho. Really enjoyed the great run the Mets went on, qualifying for post-season but sadly that's where it ended. It seem's the less said about last season...the better.
Being a complete leyman of baseball, I go yay when we got a home run and strike others out, but the nuances of the game are definitely lost on me, so hopefully I'll learn a lot about baseball while I'm here.
So, I ask the baseball aficionados/mets fans here, who should I look out for this season? And realistic views of how season might go? Or just say hello back haha!
Nice to meet you all,
