I predict that the New York Mets will surprise everyone and finish above .500. Their rotation is very solid with Zack Wheeler, Dillon Gee and Bartolo Colon fronting a rotation that also has a lot of potential stored in the minors. Reports say that ace Matt Harvey looks to return to action in August or September, providing a potential shot in the arm for them. Also, even though the lineup is usually criticized, if players such as Ike Davis and Chris Young can flash some of the potential they have shown in the past and if Curtis Granderson can return to form, the Mets will have a solid, if not great lineup. If Atlanta’s injury troubles continue, I can even see the Mets making a run at second place and a wild-card spot. -Adrian Cruz
