This week, Baseball Prospectus is wrapping up our season preview series … and today I have the Mets’ side of things. The conceit of these season previews is that we’re trying to figure out what the 2017 season will be remembered for; when it comes to the Mets it seems obvious that the remarkable, talented rotation will be what this team’s legacy will be.

“We’ll remember this season because of this rotation: either we’ll see a world-class collection of pitching talent for the ages or we’ll talk about how we still haven’t seen the Four Horsemen or Five Aces that we were once promised. Nothing short of sweeping the NL Cy Young finalists will ever be good enough to match the hype built up in our heads.”
