What we learned from this road trip

After winning eleven straight ballgames, the Mets have dropped four out of their last six contests. The fan-base is getting antsy, it doesn’t take someone two minutes on twitter to figure that out. I think that we all have to understand that the Mets, Mike Trout, any other “god” like baseball team is human. That’s frustrating, especially after a good homestand. It was better than good, it was perfect. The Mets were perfect. Everyone saw the team they wanted in front of them, but then the Yankees took that away.

But that’s the beauty of Baseball. There is another game tomorrow, redemption starts tomorrow. The Mets have a lot to be proud of in April, and we should look forward to continued success in May.

Captain Wright expected back this weekend

David Wright injured his hamstring sliding into second base during the April 14th game versus the Phillies. Wright needs to know that we need him for better things than stealing a base, and the good news is that the Mets will be able to tell him that in person as he expected to return from the disabled list sometime this weekend versus the Washington Nationals. David is eligible to come off the disabled list tomorrow, how ever it is expected to take a few days more. My expectation is that we will have him in full health by the Orioles series, I’m still not convinced if he will have him ready for gnome night (Saturday), but since Campbell is preforming above average at third, there is no need for him to “rush” back. With Wright back, the Mets could again have a very formidable lineup.
