"Barring injuries, the only positions up for com-
petition are for fifth starter, a left-handed reliever, a backup catcher and a right-handed hitter off the bench".......Very good chance for a repeat given that pretty much all of the same players are back and only those positions are up for competition. And the mets... well i think they've just become laughable at this point. 2008 WORLD CHAMPS!!!

Signing Moyer to a 2 year 13 million is a headscratcher??
I think Happ wins the fifth spot and that Park will be released.
All in all they have a shot to repeat with this lineup.
