“I compare this team to, and it’s been a lot better than, the team I had in New York,” Johnson continued, referring to the Mets team he took over in 1984. “And we won more than 90 games my first year, then 98, then 108. This club jumped 18 wins. This club was a lot younger. The leap was great, but it was a lot of guys contributing, not just one or two rookies, to overcome the injuries we had. I have a lot of confidence in this upcoming season, and I know that other room has as much, if not more.”
