Playing 4 against the Padres and 3 against LA again (thank you schedule makers), it won’t be easy. They are two of the best teams in the NL and as Dave posted earlier today, West Coast trips historically are painful for the Mets.
So far the formula for the Mets has been great starting pitching and a resurgent bullpen, who by the way has allowed only 1 run in their last 30 innings. If they want to repeat as division champs again, the bats will have to heat up in Sunny California. We’ve waited long enough. The time to unload is now.
