If you read my previous article, I said the New York Mets needed to show some consistency. We won’t know for another week if Mets will start playing winning baseball consistently, but we do know the Mets just went 4-2 this past week and I said that was the record they needed to prove to themselves they are still in it.
Losing to the Yankees is never fun, mainly because their fans like to rub it in, and start talking about championships that happened during the first World War. But interleague is over and it’s time for the New York Mets to go on a run here and make up some ground in the division and wild card races.
Forget what Dickey did tonight, he will bounce back, and got Santana leading off a must win series against the Cubs tomorrow night. Need to take 2 maybe even all 3 to really go on a nice run. We won’t know until next Sunday if the Mets can build on this week, but I think they can and will.
The losses to the Yankees were tough but inspiring. They fought to the end. Collins made some mistakes, the pitchers had their problems and Mets stopped hitting in the clutch. Tip your hat to the Yankees and forget it, get 4 or 5 wins this week and this subway series means nothing.
Don’t give up Mets fans, and don’t worry about “those” yankee fans. Let them gloat over regular season games. You would think a team with 27 World Titles would only be focused on one thing, but when your team celebrates making catches like Nick Swisher, what do you expect!
But that’s enough ribbing on the Yankees, respect their organization and most of their players. They earned the series victory, but wasn’t easy, the Mets fought and us Met fans can take that as a positive.
So Relax, take a breath, and tune into tomorrow night for Santana vs Cubs. Will be a dandy!
