The Mets have had a busy offseason, with GM Brodie Wagenen recently making a "come get us" declaration to the rest of the NL East.
So, how many games should they expect to win in 2019?
BetOnline.Ag's odds have the Mets' over/under at 84.5, tied for the fifth-best in the National League with the Brewers and Phillies.
In the NL, that puts the Mets behind the Dodgers (94.5), Cardinals (88.5), Cubs (88.5), and Nationals (87.5).
If the odds are to be taken with anything more than a grain of salt, the Mets have only a bit of work to do to catch the Nats, and are only slightly ahead of the Braves (83.5). The Marlins have the second-worst over/under projection in baseball (65.5).
The crosstown Yankees, who have had a relatively quiet offseason by their standards, came in at 95.5, tied with the Red Sox and behind only the Astros (96.5) in all of baseball.
