Mets have shown Authority during this Homestand

The Opening homestand for the Mets could not be drawn up any better record-wise. Yes, there have been injuries that could be troublesome moving forward, but I think that there are a lot of positives that should not be overlooked. This year, the Mets have been doing things that they failed to accomplish in previous years. The Mets have established big innings in all of there games, and when you give your acclaimed, banged up, pitching staff powerful leads, good things happen. The Mets are also getting lucky brakes, which, as we know, are out of our control. The Mets winning 11 straight games is great, and I mean great. I’m super proud of the guys, but I know that when things go right, it’s hard to pick apart the team, and when it’s April, it’s impossible to see this teams flaws. I’m interested to see what will happen to this ball club when they get in a funk and struggle for a little bit. That is when we will see what sort of team we have. The good news is, the Mets won 11 straight with no captain, a poor shortstop, an injured catcher (for the recent games) and an injury plagued bullpen. When (could be if) the Mets get back to 100% health, I believe this team could rise way above expectations. Until then, hopefully, they will continue to dazzle. On to the Bronx……
