State of the Mets: June 8th

The Mets (30-27) have reached a critical part of their schedule, as their next nine games are: 3 at home versus the Padres, then six on the road versus Baltimore (16-41) and Cleveland (21-35).

They have to go at least 6-3 or ideally 7-2 over this stretch. They current sit only 2.5 games out of 1st place (1/2 game back of 2nd place Philadelphia). I am not concerned with games back in June, but use it as a reference. The Mets need to get to 5 games over .500 first, then start looking at what everyone else in the division is doing.

Hopefully we can get to that 5 games over .500 after these next nine games.

I will be at the game tonight and will be meeting up with a few loyal readers. If you haven't been to Citi Field in a while, come out and show your support.

As always, LET'S GO METS!


  1. this loyal reader will be there tonight...sitting in left field (in foul territory, not behind the wall), 25 rows or so off the field...

    see you tonight the kid chicken...


  2. Great perspective on things Anthony. I completely agree. If they could find a way to go 7-2 over these next 9, they'd be sitting at 8 games over .500. Is that asking too much? Maybe, especially since 6 of the games are on the road (even though the teams are bad).

    If they can come away with a 6-3 record, they'd be at 6 games over and in good position. Frankly, they would be in a better position than I thought they'd be in at this point.
