The New York Mets made splash after splash during the convoluted MLB offseason. Owner Steve Cohen and the front office completely revamped the roster, which looks to end a five-year playoff drought.
The new-look starting rotation is arguably the best position group on roster, headlined by a pair of Cy Young award winners in newly-signed Max Scherzer and the dynamic Jacob deGrom.
MLB.com recently released a preseason starting rotation power rankings and Mets fans will just absolutely love their spot on the list.
Mets Power Rankings
The Mets check in at No. 1 on the list, but seemingly feels leaps and bounds ahead of every other team in the top-10.
MLB.com reporter Anthony Castrovince used each club's projected starting rotation to compile the list. New York's starting five is intimidating, to say the least. deGrom and Scherzer form a decorated 1-2 punch with their combined five Cy Young award.
Newly-acquired Chris Bassitt checks in the third spot, and the rotation is rounded out by Carlos Carrasco and Taijuan Walker.
While the depth of this rotation is understated, Castrovince leans into the Scherzer-deGrom combination as his main reasoning for the Mets' ranking. His offers the highest of praise for the pair, saying "leading your rotation with two of the greatest pitchers of their generation is a good thing."
It's going to be a fun year of baseball in Queens, especially on the bump. The league's April 7th Opening Day is now just a week away and New York enters the campaign with +1100 odds (5th) to win the World Series on FanDuel Sportsbook.
