It’s premature to draw a conclusion on where the Mets will finish this season, but there’s a lot to be said for winning eight games so far with a skeleton lineup. There a qualifier in the quality of the competition, but would you rather have seen them lose eight games?
Some of the young players have done well, which is a good sign. Also the pitching has been strong.
It will be interesting to see how this team does when all the parts are there.
