I have been loving on the Mets since the MLB lockout finally ended.  Uncle Steve Cohen has made some awesome moves in the short offseason when he added: Max Scherzer, Mark Canha, Starling Marte and others.  The Mets currently sit at 4-2, and I know it's early.  People love to drink the "Kool-Aid" as I love to say, and start hyping up their respective teams with over 150 games to go.  The Mets look good, but there is one problem, injuries.  Jacob deGrom won't be pitching for the Mets until at least June and another pitcher just hit the 10 day injured list.  Here is my quick take on this from the Times Union:

It’s so early in the season and already the New York Mets are down two starters. Taijuan Walker was placed on the IL with right shoulder bursitis on Tuesday, which hopefully does not keep him out for a lengthy period of time. But with ace Jacob deGrom out for at least four weeks, the Mets are really going to need David Peterson to step up. Peterson is more than capable of filling in as a starter, and right now, the Mets have no choice but to lean on him. Even with all the money in baseball, you can’t overcome injuries to your top players. Let’s hope for the best, because Mets’ fans deserve better.

MJ and I had Tim Britton on earlier this afternoon here on Big Board Sports.  Tim is a friend of the program and is a Mets Beat Writer for The Athletic.  Below is our full interview with him.

Again, it is early, but I fully believe that the New York Mets will overcome their injuries and be a playoff team in 2022.
