The Mets are in first place, but it doesn’t feel like they are…

As we all know, our Mets are in First Place. Just saying that in June is amazing. For some reason though, I don’t have the same excitement that I had in 2007 and 2008 when the Mets were in contention until the last day of the season. I was reading a post by Shannon Shark of MetsPolice.com, and he said that this team lacks a real “superstar”. I could argue that a healthy and productive David Wright is, but since he is no where near that, I think Shannon is right. So here is the critical question, Do the Mets need a “Superstar” that is a leader? 

I think the answer is “Yes”. Prior to the 2013 season, the Mets named David Wright their team captain, for good reasons, I truly believe that his voice travels throughout the clubhouse, and his presence is very important to the team. I do not believe Matt Harvey is a leader, and if he ever will be he needs to mature. I think that we are just days away from a Nationals hot streak, and the Mets are going to be pressed to maintain the thin lead that they currently hold. I think it behooves the Mets to make a move to get a bat before the Nationals get something going. The Mets have been extremely lucky this year, and they haven’t had to face a lot of problems this year, but with Jeryus Familia in danger of going on the DL, the Mets might have to make a move soon….
