Over the next seven days, the Mets will play their first games against the Philadelphia Phillies and Atlanta Braves in 2009. They have started the season 9-12 and fans are already starting to question the team. The next seven games could be very important, not just for the season, but for the coaches on staff.
Yesterday, I asked my Twitter followers how they think the Mets will fare over the next seven games. (Hat tip to @tweetthemets for the suggestion.) Here are their responses:
tweetthemets said: I think with Ollie going against the Phils twice their chances improve! 4-3
andy79 said: put me down for 5-2. Ever the optimist.
bortnick said: 4-3. it's easy to play a few lousy games and get all jittery, but it's too early to bug out, everyone's gotta relax
MetsNY81 said: 4-3
JTKrycek said: Mets 4-3. Blanton, Park = 2 Mets wins. Kawikami = 50/50. Santana = win. But 7 game win streak would rock like mad.
MissBethAnn said: I'm gunna be optomistic and say 4-3. I'm not ready to jump off the bridge yet!
mets_geekette said: Poll: 5-2. They've gotta turn it around at some point. Why not this wkend? Here's to hoping.
jessicarubin said: 4-3. Don't trust Ollie to come through on both games.
jessicarubin said: btw I was being hopeful on the side of cautious when I said 4-3. Realistically I think 3-4 but I wanted to be optimistic =(
mostlymets said: 2-5. It's going to be a rough week.
thebrowncoat said: 3-4. I don't see any indication they're ready to start playing consistently good baseball yet.
jintman said: 3-4 I hope!
Retire31 said: 3-4. Sadly.
metschick said: I think they'll go 3-4.
cutiepie0319k said: 2-5.. they will be lucky if they go 3-4.. i hope they prove me wrong.
gwong said: 5-2 if the games end after six innings (ha!). Really, 3-4 is my guess and that's only if they win Johan's start.
TLA_Quinn said: 3-4 sounds about right to me...although I'd love a 4-3!
metgirl4ever said: i think we'll go 3-4 also, but i need them to go @ least 5-2 for the Mets
letsgoduke said: 3-4. Were just not putting a cohesive unit on the field right now.
Vodka_RB said: 3-4 at best
cwb75 said: would like to say 7-0 or even, but I am being the pessimist and say 3-4
trekmetfan said: I say 3 out of 7 for the Mets.
gmo418 said: 2-5 outlook is bleak, hope i am wrong
From a Phillies phan…
kierankelly said: 2-5. Losing 2 to the Fightins' and 3 to the Braves.
I can’t see them going .500 over these two teams, especially not the way they’ve been playing so far this season. Notice that the pessimists list is much longer.
