With Opening Day just around the corner, every major league team is gearing up for the season to start. Each team and their respective fanbases, believe that this could be the year that they surprise everyone and either wildly outperform expectations or win the World Series. Spring Training breeds optimism, but once the games get going, we'll see where the chips really fall. The following is a season outlook for the 2014 New York Mets.

3. Daniel Murphy
4. Travis d'Arnaud
5. Chris Young

While the heavy lifting will fall on Wright's shoulders, the Mets have augmented the lineup a bit this season with Granderson and Young. A full season of d'Arnaud in the lineup should help, as well. They'll need the latter part of this list to step up big-time to stay in the race.

4. Bobby Parnell
5. Jonathon Niese

With ace Matt Harvey likely done for the season, the Mets are going to need to rely on their other arms to pick up the slack in order for the team to remain in contention. A healthy Bobby Parnell at the back of the bullpen certainly wouldn't hurt either.

1. Curtis Granderson
2. Bartolo Colon
3. Chris Young
4. Jose Valverde
5. John Lannan

The pickings get much slimmer as you descend the list as the Mets didn't do much addition beyond the top three. Granderson, Colon, and Young will be relied upon to provide some veteran leadership, as well as to keep the ball club afloat this summer.

1. Noah Syndergaard
2. Travis d'Arnaud
3. Rafael Montero
4. Dominic Smith
5. Wilmer Flores

The top three are no-brainers and should all see extended action at the major league level this season, although Montero and Syndergaard won't start with the big league club. Smith is still a ways away, but Flores could also have an impact on this year's team depending on if they find a consistent position for him to play.

Final Record: 80-82
Divisional Standing: 3rd

The Mets still don't possess the firepower to compete with heavyweights like Atlanta and Washington, but they should be able to finish ahead of Philadelphia and Miami, which could be viewed by some as slight progress. They figure to slightly improve upon last year's record, but if they don't come close to reaching .500 this season, it's not going to be a pretty sight in Flushing come September.
