With today’s win against the Marlins, the Mets improved to 14-11 on the season. They play two games in Philly on Tuesday and Wednesday and it will be May, so they will end the month at the worst with a 14-13 record, which is a winning record. You would think that this would not happen to often in recent years but it has:
- 2013: 10-15
- 2012: 13-10
- 2011: 11-16
- 2010: 14-9
- 2009: 9-12
- 2008: 14-12
Actually every other year, the Mets have done this since the last year at Shea Stadium. However the last couple of years have been miserable, so it is forgivable to forget it (however now through reflection, I remember that glimmer of hope in 2012). The pessimist looks at these records and says nothing is new with the Mets this year if they end April above .500. The optimist says in 2008 (and 2007, 2006 when this also happened), the Mets were competitive throughout the season. The realist says there no true trends in the data just looking at April and then looking at the end of September.
Here’s hoping the Mets keep this going! LGM!
