The New York Mets began last season with the addition of two of the most high profile free agents, Pedro Martinez and Carlos Beltran. Martinez led the New York Mets in wins, strikeouts and innings. Beltran gave the New York Mets 16 home runs and 17 stolen bases.
Although last season started slowly, the New York Mets quickly recovered their footing and made a push to finish third in the division. Although the New York Mets ended the season just short of a postseason berth, the team has shown that they will be a force to be rekoned with this season.
