Both the Phillies and Mets rosters could look dramatically different by the end of the season depending on how their first halves play out. Either team could be buyers or sellers at the deadline with a wild card potentially on the line.

Like most teams the Phillies and Mets will rely on health and the success of their pitching staffs. If the Mets can get Matt Harvey back to his pre-injury self New York could be a scary team down the stretch.

I expect the two teams to split their season series with the Mets coming up big early and the Phillies surging in the second half.
