Three in Atlanta, one yesterday is four straight wins. That’s a season high.
Do you know there’s never been a playoff team that’s not had at least one five-game winning streak during the season?
Here’s another hump for the Mets to go over.
It’s good to see Delgado do his thing. I had lost hope but it looks as if he has gotten right at the right time.
Hopefully he can do in October what he did last year.
There’s always a first time. :-) But I really hope the Mets can start like an 11 game win streak. It would be nice!
Maybe a winning streak of more than 4 isn’t meant to be. If it were to happen as lengthly as Steve suggeses (11 games), it might lend to complacency and a sidetracking of rhythm. A win-4-and-lose-1 pattern the rest of the way (includding post season) and being the team that makes history would be great…but an 11 game winning streak sure would fill an immediate hole by cutting the balls out from under all the competition. (I can’t tell, it’s been so long—when was the last time the Amazins won 11 straight?).
If they keep consistent and retain the fire. we will have great outings whether won or lost. but if they peter out and struggle as they have it will be a very torturous climb.
i will settle for winning the series and not sweeping. if we can do 3 out of 4 and 2 out of 3. etc. I will be happy..
Yeah, me too other Steve. I’ll settle for a nice 7 out of 10 streak going into the playoffs. (Provided of course their last 3 games don’t result in the 3 losses out of ten!)
Evening out that horrifical losing streak of five with a winning streak of five would be a quality situation.
And I disagree, I think pulling away would be the Mets could do right now… forcing Willie’s hand on testing out some of the peripheral pitchers and…
Maybe just maybe we get one or none of Sele Mota and Schoeneweis on a theorethical post-season roster.
Going into a playoff series with Willie allowed to go to TWO of those guys would scare the hell out of a dude. One’d be bad enough.
