The Mets are on a big time roll after routing Arizona by 13 runs today. They head into Philly with a nice lead of 6.5 games but what you have to like best is David Wright saying it can almost get halved with a bad week. The point is the Mets have their eye on the prize and that’s the best attitude to have at this point.
They haven’t won anything yet, and realizing that says a lot of this team’s maturity. There are a lot of things to like about the Mets, and that sense of purpose is one of them.
One thing not to like, or at least be concerned with, is Pedro Martinez’s right big toe. He said it’s bothering him again. The Mets went almost seven weeks without him winning, but that’s not the same as being without him period. During that stretch, Martinez kept the Mets in the game and ate innings. Who’s going to do that if he’s down for any period of time?
Red flag? Damn right it is.
