Mets Second Half Preview, These Next 10 Games Make or Break The Season

Three against baseball’s best team in St. Louis, three at the Nationals who come out of the break with a two-game lead over the Amazin’s, and then four against the NL West-leading Dodgers.

That right there will make or break the 2015 season for the Mets. Let’s break down a couple of scenarios.

1) 3-7 or better. Season’s over that simple.

2) 5-5. I think Mets fans should take that every day of the week, especially if it involves a split against LA and two of three against the Nationals.

3) 7-3 or better. SANDY, GO GET ME A GOD DAMN BAT BECAUSE WE GOIN TO THE PLAYOFFS.

Of course, nothing will get done by the trade deadline. The Mets will continue to trot out a minor league lineup with an All-Star pitching staff. None of the scenarios I laid out will move the front office to action. In option #1, the season’s over, no need to make a move, Sandy will say. In option #2, Sandy will point to the fact the Mets are doing just fine, and in option #3 he might even consider selling offense.

There you have it. In the next 10 games we’ll see if this Mets team is for real.

Here’s some advice for the Mets and a general rule of thumb in baseball:
