The Mets have 14 very important games coming up. If the season outcome hasn’t already solidified, it will be soon.
The Mets kick off in Washington tonight for a three game series, then on to Houston for three more. They return home next Monday for four games against Colorado and four more against Arizona.
Those 14 games, coming against the good and the bad of the National League, will be the the true sign of the Mets season.
If the Mets can make some sort of run here, they might just have a shot. If they flounder like they have been for all of June and July, then the nail is officially in the coffin.
The next two weeks, 14 games in 15 days, will determine if the team has a shot in 2009. If it ends up like most fans think it will, the Mets might actually become sellers.
Wouldn’t that be weird to see?
