The Mets clinched the National League Eastern division title last Saturday in Cincinnati, and they are now only one game away from that elusive 90 win mark, which was last years “expectation”, according to Sandy Alderson.
After a poor 2014, the Mets headed into the offseason hoping to enhance their roster. Unfortunately, the offseason for the Mets was fairly disappointing. Michael Cuddyer was the only major signing, and with the exception of the Mets “streak” in April, the first half of the season was fairly disappointing. The fans (me included) were doubting Sandy Alderson’s guts, and after a very disappointing series against the Dodgers, the Mets went out and got Uribe and Johnson. Good moves, but nothing major. However, on July 31st 2015, the Mets traded for Yoenis Cespedes.
Yoenis. Cespedes. A player I will never forget. While he is one of the 25 Mets on their roster, I believe he is the reason the Mets made the postseason. The first successful postseason push that I’ve ever witnessed by the Mets. While the results of this postseason are still un-known, this season is a successful one, no matter what. The Mets have a lot to be proud of this year, and hopefully, with a little luck, some postseason success. So head on out to a ball game this weekend and cheer on the Mets, your 2015 NL East Champs.
