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!
