I am offically putting the Mets back into the race for the NL East Pennant. They are currently 3 1/2 games out of first place, only two losses behind the Phillies (and losses are really all that counts as you cannot lose less games, but you can win more…does that make sense?)
The offense is beginning to click. Reyes is back to being Reyes. Although very unheralded this season, he has put up all star numbers to this point and is on pace to hit about .300 with 20 HR, 80 RBI 60+ SB and over 100 Runs scored.
The Gangsta has shown in just a weeks time that he is willing to bench players that are not healthy, or performing. Which means Luis Castillo has found his gimpy ass on the pine.
David Wright, whose batting average on OBP have not been where they usually are, is still among the league leaders in HR and RBI.
The rotation and bullpen are coming around. There is simply too much talent on this team for them to remain a .500 team.
Willie Randolph had to go. Period.
I am actually excited on a nightly basis to watch Met games, which is the first time in a long, long time that I can say that.
