The Mets have an outstanding record in comparison to what most Met fans expected. Almost nobody expected a first place position at this juncture of the season. Almost nobody expected that they would play with such vigor, good defense, and timely hitting. I can safely say that NOBODY expected our ace, the only pitcher that […]
