One time Giants, Jets, Patriots etc head coach, Bill Parcells one said “ You are what your records says you are!”. This is self evident with this seasons Met team. At times the Mets seem like they they can hang with the best teams in their division, and as we have seen over the last few games when they lose- well they do it in 1962 style.
Just like a .500 team it appears that this season’s Mets team is lacking consistency. When the pitchers are on their game the offense seems to provide little run support. When the bats do seem to come around it seems like the pitching and defense seem non-existent.
Is this what we can expect from this season ? Most probably it is, but we all know that this team is a team that most likely will not win a division – nor will they play well enough for a wild card slot. But if they do finish the season at .500 or better – well I think it will be a sign that better days are ahead of this team.
And with that said… HERE COMES THE INFAMY !!!!!

One of the best power hitting outfielders to ever wear a Mets uniform, Carlos Beltran is 35 (1977).
Sadly on this date in 1992, original Mets shortstop, Elio Chacon passed away.
