It’s almost September 1st, the back pages are filled with the smiling faces of returning captain David Wright, the pumped up Daniel Murphy, the lovely locks of #48, Jacob deGrom. Most importantly though the back pages are filled with winning New York Mets baseball.
The Mets are a hot topic right now. New York sports radio, ESPN, MLB network, wherever you look, there they are being talked about and for once not in a joking manner. This team has arrived. They have taken over New York it seems, as they have surprised, exhilarated and rejuvenated a starving fan base. This team is for real.
When they are down, they are not truly down, and we are just wondering who and when the come back will be complete to win the game. When is the last time you could say there was such a confidence about this team?
Fans are still scared and rightfully so of a collapse that could possibly be ala 2007, 2008. These Mets though are not those Mets. This is a young team with the right amount of veterans mixed in to make an impact in the 2015 post-season. Let’s enjoy the ride, because it seems like its just getting started as we head into serious September baseball for the first time in almost a decade.
