The feelgood start to this season would have been horribly tainted if they had been swept by The Hated Nationals. Some big bats and a couple of breaks in the 8th inning last night put pause to the bad vibes.
I’m inclined to agree with the New York Times: “The Mets believe. The season is just underway, so all the usual disclaimers apply. But they are commanding attention, and backing up their strut.”
