NL East Team-by-Team 2020 Preview: New York Mets

The National League East is considered by many to be the strongest division in Major League Baseball. With the defending World Champion Washington Nationals, and the other three teams all finishing at-or-above .500 in 2019, it’s no wonder the Miami Marlins have a bit of an uphill climb to relevancy, to put it mildly.

At 57-105, the Miami Marlins were 24 games out of second-to-last place last season, behind the fourth-place Philadelphia Phillies and 40 games behind the NL-East winning Atlanta Braves. The New York Mets, who posted a strong 86-76 record, finished a distant third in the division, 11 games out of the division title and a mere three games out of the wild card money.
