State of the Mets 6/13/11

The Mets took 2 of 3 to start the road trip in Milw, and have taken the first 2 of 3 vs the Pirates with the final game tonight, Mike Pelfrey vs Paul Maholm. The Mets scored 6 runs in 5 2/3 vs Maholm on June 2nd, but he got a no decision.

The Mets have won 7 out of their last 10 games, and can get back to .500 for the first time since May 20th with a win tonight. But they still are in 4th place in the NL East, 7 1/2 games back from the Phillies, and 5 1/2 back from the Braves (5 teams between the Mets and Braves for the Wild Card).

  • Chris Capuano has delivered back to back quality starts, but it's nothing compared to the mastery shown by Dillon Gee. Gee is now 7-0 in 9 starts, with a 3.05 ERA, and 1.09 WHIP. He went from a fringe major leaguer, to a potential all-star in a month.
  • The offense continues to be paced by Jose Reyes, who may very well be the National League MVP at this point
    • J Turner, D Murphy are both contributing more than expected at this point.
 This team has definitely been more fun to watch over the past 2 weeks, and hopefully they can arrive in Atlanta tomorrow with a .500 record.
