We talk about how plans can look good on paper, but not come to fruition in reality. This is true in financial planning, but it’s especially true for the 2021 New York Mets. The team looked GREAT on paper until 16 (17? I can’t keep count) regular players got injured. But like a financial plan, it’s time to adapt and make changes to stay afloat. Luckily, the Mets seem to be doing that sitting at 22-20 technically in first place in the NL East. We’ll see how long they can last without reinforcements.
