What I Take Away From Win #6

  • It seemed like earlier in the year the Mets were pressing. At times it seemed they were back on their heels simply hoping not to mess up. Over the past week they have become the aggressor. Even when they make mistakes or things go against them the team has the mental fortitude to overcome them. Tonight was a prime example, with 3 things that came to mind
  1. Murph homering after Reyes was wrongfully called out at third
  2. Limiting the damage in the 8th after Bay couldn’t grab the fly ball and nobody was covering 2nd in time for his throw
  3. Coming from behind for the 2nd time in the game in the 9th
  • Over the course of this 6 game win streak, Mets pitchers have produced 5 quality starts (6 innings or more, 3 earned runs or less). The Mets offense is pretty good, one of better offenses in the NL. If the Mets can consistently get 6 innings and 3 runs from their starters they will be competitive, especially with the bullpen (or its 4 main contributers) performing nicely.

    Your third point is the one that sticks out the most to me my man. I’m starting to develop (notice the precautionary tone) a belief that this team is going to become one of those pesky groups that annoys the hell out of their opponents every series because they just won’t die.
