Very, very big.
The Mets will play four games in three days against their crosstown counterparts. They'll get a day off on Monday, then head out to St. Louis for a three game set against the Cardinals. After that they're off to Philadelphia for four games against the Phillies.
11 games in 11 days.
After those games, they host some NL west teams before heading into the All Star break. San Francisco and Colorado make their way into Shea before the midsummer classic.
17 games in 17 days.
With the Phillies reeling, some wins here would be even more special. Philly has won only two of it's last ten games, and the Mets are back to 3.5 games back.
I'm not going to make any predictions, but if the Mets can play good, solid, fundamental baseball and win some series, and maybe even sweep one or two, it will be a brand new season during the second half.
These games are huge for the Mets. Must win games.
