We may not recognize the players without a scorecard. During late 2022 and the off-season management played with their rosters like they were jiggling expensive kaleidoscopes. The Mets let Jacob DeGrom go; but padded their high-priced starting pitching rotation adding All-Star Justin Verlander, Jose Quintana and rookie Japanese free-agent Kodai Senga to a staff previously led by Max Scherzer, Carlos Carrasco and David Peterson, while retaining their slugging lineup and adding outfielder Tommy Pham. Early betting has them favored in the highly competitive East.
Enter Joey Meneses, The Nats Prince of Serendip
The Nats shook their kaleidoscope even harder, surrendering fan favorite future Hall of Famer Juan Soto and Josh Bell for a package of highly touted prospects including shortstop C.J. Abrams and starting pitcher Mackenzie Gore who are expected to be part of their new core along with last season’s surprise hitting star, 30-year-old rookie first baseman/right fielder Joey Meneses, with whom the Nats may have struck gold. From his arrival August 2, in 56 games, Meneses hit .324, OBP.367 and OPS of .930 and at an annualized rate equivalent to 38 HRs, 40 2Bs and 98 RBIs. Joining promising young Nats 2B Luis Garcia, Pitcher Josiah Gray and Catcher Keibert Ruiz and rookie Picher Cade Cavalli are Former Met 1B/LF Dominic Smith and former Tiger 3B Jeimer Candelario. No doubt, as the season progresses, the kaleidoscopes will spin and the picture will change. One thing is constant, baseball is back. Come out with your fellow Columbians, enjoy them and cheer for your team.
