Good Morning Mets Fans!!
Glass Half-Full Mentality: The Mets can actually score runs. Their offense has perked up throughout the Colorado series as they have scored 28 runs throughout their last three games.
Glass Half-Empty Mentality: We can’t pitch. Although the defense permitted three runs to score last night, the Mets pitching allowed seven more runs and has been primarily ineffective throughout the series. In yesterday’s contest, every-time the Mets had the lead, their bullpen quickly gave it right back.
