There are many question marks surrounding the Mets’ offense this season. Why isn’t Jose Reyes hitting? Why is David Wright striking out so much? Why can’t Jason Bay get a clutch hit? Where did Jeff Francoeur’s bat disappear to? Why isn’t Luis Castillo on crutches yet? It’s enough to make a Mets fan go crazy […]

Last season was one of frustration and futility where home runs and the Mets were concerned. A brand new ball park was held to blame for the lack of oomph in the Mets offense and many were convinced that David Wright would never eclipse 15 homers in a season again. If this season has shown […]
