Vinny Cartiglia: Most fans I have spoken to on Twitter and Facebook did not envision a 13-10 April for the Mets. Especially when you consider their slew of games against the National League East. However, the Mets held court against their NL East foes and have given us some things to be excited about. Hopefully, they can build on their April success and continue to exceed expectations.
