What Is the Mets Strength?

The text poll on the SNY telecast yesterday was, “What do you think the Mets strengths will be this year” with the choices

a. Starters
b. Relievers
c. Outfield
d. Infield

What is your answer, and why?

I have to admit, this was a tough one for me. I guess it’s the infield, since it’s not the outfield, it’s not the bullpen, and it’s hard to choose the starting rotation when two of the projected starters are already on the DL (with one out for the year). Granted, the Mets infield isn’t bad, but it isn’t great, either — it’s OK. And if that’s the team’s “strength,” well, it’s going to be a long season.

But that’s just my opinion. What’s your thought? Sound off in the comments.
