Meet the Mets, meet the Mets, step up and … look at the Mets.
The 2021 New York Mets had a good offseason, acquiring a new owner, a new general manager, and Cleveland’s Francisco Lindor and Carlos Carrasco on their main move, joining an already talented group of guys.
While Carrasco is starting the season on the shelf, the Mets are the calmest pick of many people to take home the NL East. Health permitting, they have as much chance as anyone of being in the division mix by the end of the year.
For those die-hard Mets fans without the cable who want to watch the team’s game in the NL East, check out the viewing options below.
