New York Mets a Team of Trouble, of sorts
There were few players or fans for that matter that would have seen this coming. The New York Mets in the Driver seat when it comes to their own destiny. Was this not a team that just a few years ago were on the brink of blowing up and self-destructing?
Even heading into Spring Training, there was doubts that the team would be able to hold together to get a single win this season. Then the unthinkable happened, they became a team and instead of falling apart, became a lot stronger.
The new pitching coach has given the team an increased sense of purpose in the fact that they are now able to get better accuracy with their pitching as well as not over doing it in their workouts. This has helped the bullpen overcome a lot of the issues that they had been experiencing when they were on the field.
The Bullpen that many people were laughing at during spring training is now one of the more respected ones in all of baseball. This is due to a displace that has been placed in the bullpen. Players are to be on time and failure to do so will result in punishment. This has led to a sense of dedication in the pitching rotation.
The work that has been put into getting a batting order that is second to none, has also went a long way in helping to make sure that the team is able to face whatever comes their way. Many teams took this team too lightly and as a result found them to be in a position that the Mets were able to place a win on their season. All of this has put them a half game from tying for first in the division.
There is a new sense of pride in the infield and outfield as well. This has led to some of the more spectacular catches in the history of the Mets. This also has held more runners at base than any other team in the league. These facts cannot be argued and as a result the Mets are destined to be the team in which to beat this season.
If this will continue or not is yet to be seen, what is known is that there is plenty of baseball left to play and the Mets are the master of their own destiny? The more that they try this season, the better the results will be.
There is no real reason why the problems of the past, will bother the Mets as they charge towards the end of the season. The more that they are told they won’t make it, the more determined that they will become. This is the best time to jump on the Mets bandwagon, and claim that you have been a lifelong fan. If not then your friends will have a team to root for and your team will more than likely be a victim to the New york Mets.
