Baseball has had an uprising this season. From last years amazing breaking of the curse of the Bambino, it feels as if that was the barrier that needed to be broken to get people excited and hopeful about baseball again. Stadium seats are filled and Baseball has that excitement and orgasmic feel it hasent had in a while.
Whats your predictions, thoughts, opinions, etc. on your team or any team. Whats your favorite team, player, coach, etc. Anything relating to this baseball season.
Mets: The Mets, the Mets, the Mets. Arguably one of the worst teams in baseball. There isnt much to say about their problems as a team. Each aspect was never held together and working like clockwork in the past years. the Mets could never keep it together as a team and pull through strong.
This year, something gave it seems. With a strong bull-pen, lead hitting, the Mets are pulling themselves together and becoming an actual "Team" as if it were 86' all over again. People are saying we can go all the way to the World Series this year. I disagree. The Mets are doing good, but not that good, they still have the same characteristics of 90's Mets. Failure under pressure. WS Champions? Probably not. NL East champions? Good chance. So far weve been going strong. Our biggest problem has been the Braves. Bobby Cox - what else is there to say? Aside from that, the Mets have many tendencies to be strong and then crack, fall, crash, and burn in one inning and not recover. Although those tendencies have been slowly moving passed them this season.
Id say so far, in the 35 or so games, the Mets in general have improved a great deal in 05-06 than they have in the past decade it seems. They have the will to go far. They have the ability to go far. But they need to work on keeping cool when they dont get dealt a good hand.
