What Trivial Dribble

Look! Did you see that? The Mets with a winning record after All-Star break! Is it the end of the world? You would have to go back all the way to season 2 for the trivia answer BTW. Then again they weren't the Mets then but called the Empire, does that count? or maybe the proper answer may be never? Is it a first? Debatable, organization wise it could be season 2. The older owners might remember if they were above .500 during season 3. They accomplished the feat in weird fashion also. First, they hit the long ball which is more than a strange feat. Such a surprise they have hit 13 home runs in the four game win streak. The way things normally go, 13 home runs might happen in 10 games or more, mostly more. More surprising, most of them happened in Shea against Salem. Secondly, they handed Salem its second three game losing streak of the season and the first time they have been swept so far this season. Third, the Mets opened the season with a 8-17 record at home. It has taken a lot of doing, but really have figured out how to win at home as we have gone 16-8 since. I have so many different lineups it is funny, takes a lot longer to set than normal also. All I can say is "WOW"!

With the schedule we have, can we maintain a winning record? is another story. Hopefully we can but it will be a struggle.
