I don’t want to be guilty of irrational exuberance, but the Mets have been en fuego the past week. Even when losing a couple of games to the Padres, they played with more spirit than they’ve shown in months. They now have the widest lead in the standings of any first place team in the National League, a healthy 6 game margin. And not to get too far ahead of ourselves, but the magic number for clinching the NL East is now 30. This team is finally showing what they’re capable of, and just in time for the stretch run. Hopefully it carries into the postseason as well. Lets go Mets!
