What went on in Houston today was a microcosm of the first half of the season.
The Mets went into the game riding an emotional high from the night before, but were as flat as a three-day Coke today. It was that way all the first half. They would have a good stretch, then hit the skids. Their longest winning streak was four games.
All the good feeling from winning three at Philly last weekend was flushed away by finishing the week at 2-6.
They haven’t hit with runners in scoring position; they have serious health issues; and there are pitching questions. Your thoughts on the first half, what went right, what went wrong, and do they have enough to get it done?
