A five game winning streak. Two games out of first place. A “goose-egg” shutout of the Phillies.
Mets fans have a lot to be excited about.
(Of course there is a but!)
Yes, the Mets are playing well. But, there are still a lot of issues to deal with…
Elmer Dessens. Why is he on the team?
Gary Matthews Jr. Why is he on the team?
Jeff Francoeur. He’s struggling and nearing the .200 mark. That’s not good at all. Should Chris Carter be getting more of a shot in RF?
R.A. Dickey and Hisanori Takahashi. They’ve been good so far, let’s hope the magic doesn’t run out.
Oliver Perez. Sitting in the bullpen and not getting much work. Seems like a waste, no?
