#4 – Carlos Beltran – Outfield
#5 – Francisco Rodriguez – Relief Pitcher
Player Details & 2009 Projections:
#1 Overall New York Met – Fantasy Baseball 2009: Jose Reyes – Shortstop
Stolen bases and runs scored are obviously Reyes’ fantasy baseball game. If you draft him you can put 60 steals, 110 runs scored, 12 homeruns, 60 rbi, 15 triples, and a .290 batting average in the bank for 2009.
#2 Overall New York Met – Fantasy Baseball 2009: David Wright – Third Base
Wright is a proven fantasy baseball stud, and at just age 26, there doesn’t look to be any let up from him for at least the next 5 years! Wright is nearly a roto scoring god, as he more than adds his fair share of stats across every scoring category. The 2009 season should bring fantasy baseball teams 30 homeruns, 110 rbi, 110 runs scored, 20 stolen bases, and an excellent .300 plus batting average.
#3 Overall New York Met – Fantasy Baseball 2009: Johan Santana – Starting Pitcher
Even though Santana has seemingly been a fantasy baseball starting pitcher god for the past seven years, he will be just 30 years old for the entire 2009 season. Santana is in the prime of his career, and he has a very good Mets offense backing him up. When you combine all of Santana’s strengths against his weaknesses, he is clearly the safest #1 overall starting pitcher for the 2009 season. The 2009 season should net Santana 15-20 wins and 220-230 strikeouts, an ERA around 2.75, and a WHIP no higher than 1.10.
#4 Overall New York Met – Fantasy Baseball 2009: Carlos Beltran – Outfield
Entering the pinnacle of his career at age 32 for the 2009 season, Beltran is a safe bet for another 25 homeruns and 20 steals season. Beltran should remain a five stat scoring category outfielder in 2009, with stats approaching 30 homeruns, 110 rbi, 100 runs scored, 20-25 stolen bases, and a .280 batting average.
#5 Overall New York Met – Fantasy Baseball 2009: Francisco Rodriguez – Relief Pitcher
Much like Papelbon, K-Rod has the same trio of factors on his side; he’s young at just 27 years old, he’s proven to be dominant and durable, and he plays for a winning team. After posting an unprecedented 62 saves in 2008, it is very unlikely he posts even close to that number in 2009. Something along the lines of 35-40 saves, 90 strikeouts, a 2.25-2.50 ERA, and a 1.20-1.30 WHIP seem reasonable to expect from Rodriguez in 2009.
