Just for the heck of it I just took a look at the last 10 games of 2014 and the first 8 of 2015. The Mets are playing .600 baseball. Now I know this does not make a full season, but it gets me excited that just maybe they can play better this year - somewhere in between mediocrity and the .600 level.
A .600 clip would win 97 games and put the Metsies in first place probably and, if not, an almost certain Wild Card slot.
Now if the anemia in the starting lineup would heal and the Mets could hit a little bit, they would have won a couple more games over the past 18 games.
