Mets have fourth-best odds to go all the way in 2022

The New York Mets didn’t meet expectations in 2021. They led their division, the NL East, for months, only to collapse in the second half after their two biggest stars, pitcher Jacob deGrom and shortstop Francisco Lindor, suffered injuries. They finished third and missed the playoffs in the first season of then-new owner Steve Cohen.

But Cohen, Mets’ president Sandy Alderson, new general manager Billy Eppler and company are working hard to make sure such a scenario doesn’t repeat itself. They went to work in the offseason and managed to make big additions before the lockout.

Yes, they lost Marcus Stroman, Michael Conforto, and Noah Syndergaard, but they also added Max Scherzer, Starling Marte, Mark Canha, and Eduardo Escobar. They can still bring in some new stars before the offseason is over, but MLB and the Players Association would have to agree on a new CBA deal first.

The Mets added some key players

The influx of talent has the Mets as one of the favorites to win the 2022 World Series, according to some sources. Per SNY, BetMGM has them at +1100 to take the Fall Classic, third in MLB behind the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros.
