It’s that time of year. I am heading out of town for the good ole’ fashion Midwest Summer Vacation. We are heading up to Madison, Wisconsin for some fun with family and friends.
We’ll spend some time on the lake and other assorted vacation related activities. We may even check out a minor-league baseball game during the trip.
Why am I telling you this?
Because you probably won’t see anything new on this site until July 6th or 7th.
If you need a Mets fix visit these friends of Midwestropolitan:
and of course, the grandfather of all Mets blogs, Matt Cerrone’s MetsBlog.
What to Expect During My Time Away
Realistically, we should expect to see the Mets go 4-3 on this current road trip. This particular trip is more difficult than many realize.
First, they have to play the Marlins in San Juan, Puerto Rico where there are two things working against them here.
1. The obvious, they are in Puerto Rico which has to be throwing their routine off.
2. The Marlins are renewed in a way. Freddy Garcia is gone and they appear to be a bit more loose which means to me they feel like they have nothing to lose. A dangerous situation.
Secondly, they travel to D.C. to play the Nationals. The Nationals have given them fits this year.
Combine that with playing them on the road and the fact that the Mets will be facing Stephen Strasburg, and the Mets have their hands full.
