Win the next 3 and take 2 of 3 from the fish and then they will have something to think about....very unlikely though

To be honest I don't think he sucks as much as some fans think he does. He could be fine on this team as a backup middle infieldef

@sandybgone there's a lot of contingencies here ultimately leading to a disappointing outcome. Let's just enjoy the win, and enjoy the good times when we can...otherwise, what's the point?

@sandybgone  Sweeping 4 games from the Braves wouldn't fool me into thinking this Mets team is close.


We've seen them go on short stretches of winning baseball, only to be followed by stretches of abysmal baseball.
