What do the years 1970, 1974, 1987, and 2001 have in common? They were years that followed the Mets appearances in the World Series. In those 4 years the Mets were flat and just could not repeat the good performances of the previous years. It lools like the same is happening in 2016 as the Mets lost a three game series to the last place Atlanta Braves. I spent my Father's Day suffering in the stands of Citifield as the Julio Teheran one-hit the Mets who lost 6-0.
The Mets are now 36-32 and trail the first place Washington Nationals by 6 games. The pitching is usually excellent, but the hitting has really gone south. Will some roster moves be made? Will Brandon Nimmo be brought out? Will Sandy Alderson make trades that perked up the team as he did last July? There are 94 games to go.
