Mets Clicking on all Cylinders

April 18, 2015- It has been eight years since the Mets have had any relevancy in the Majors let alone NYC. But after starting 8-3 this season atop of the NL east this is what David Wright envisioned when he signed his eight year $138 million dollar contract two years ago. Wright is currently out 2-3 weeks with a strained hamstring he suffered sliding into second base in Tuesday night’s game is excited to see the Mets winning although he mentioned he wish he was out there playing with the team right now. The Mets have won six games in a row the first time in four years and have started 5-0 at home for the first time in ten years so those stats alone show you how long it has been since the Mets have been relevant.

The most important thing the Mets are doing is their utilizing their players effectively and having fun at the same time. Everyone questioned why the Mets did not surround Wright with big bats like many superstars in the MLB, because they have surrounded him with pitching, pitching and more pitching. With steroids out of the game and the hefty suspensions players have to serve if caught pitching is back and better than ever. The Mets have one of the best pitching staffs in the league posting a 1.03 WHIP and a 2.63 ERA with 8 quality Starts. It also helps that the Mets have the raining NL rookie of the year and pitcher Jacob DeGrom.

They also have a player by the name of Juan Lagares who is a Gold Glover in center field. Daniel Murphy was an all-star last year and Matt Harvey is back. The Mets look like they have their pieces in place to make a run at the playoffs and perhaps a division title this year. The excitement is back in queens since Jose Reyes captivated the fans with his smile and triples on the base path. Bartolo Colon is 3-0 and has an RBI in back to back games, Familia is five for five in save opportunities and the team has had four straight come from behind victories these are signs that the Mets are playing good ball. Let’s see how much more they can accomplish when the captain David Wright returns back in the lineup and Wilmer Flores breaks out of his slump.
