Go Mets. Lets Go Mets! The Mets start June on the road to San Diego and Arizona. With a record of 28-23, the Mets are playing well enough to challenge the Nationals for first place in the National League East. Great young arms are carrying the team where a lack of hitting some days prevent the Mets from gaining victories. Defense has been sporadic at best. But they still have a winning record one third through the season.

Two months down in the 2015 season. Weather has been great, different nearly every day. I've met lots of people including many employees at Citi Field. The Mets are 21-8 at home during April and May, I've seen more victories than losses at Citi and two walkoff wins. I just hope that getting Travis d'Arnaud and David Wright back soon from injuries will bolster the offensive production and the Mets can stay in the hunt for a playoff spot and meaningful September games.

One of my bucket list items is to watch a Mets/Giants game in New York. I've attended over a hundred Mets at San Francisco games since 1984 and look forward to seeing three SF/NY games at Citi Field. It will be the first year in awhile that I miss the Mets in San Francisco. I will however get to root for the Mets in Atlanta for a weekend coming up this month.

End of Month Update

The third month of baseball is done. The Mets are over .500 with a record of 40-38, 3.5 games behind the Washington Nationals in the NL East and 2 games out in the wild card hunt. I've survived half of the season but fans accept the All*Star break in two weeks as the half way point.

The highlights for June:

  • Giant's pitcher Heston's no-hitter
  • Met's beat the Giants in New York
  • Watching 2 games with Greg Prince
  • Hot 3 day weekend in Atlanta
  • Rain at the ballpark in June
  • Visit from my wife
  • Steve Matz historic MLB debut
  • Steve Miller Band concert

I've had some darn good times at the ballpark this month as well as a very nice but very hot weekend in Atlanta. The 7Line outings have been great too.

The lowlights for June:

  • Giant's pitcher Heston's no-hitter
  • Only winning 1 of 3 from San Francisco
  • Mets unable to get enough hits
  • David Wright still out of the lineup
  • Lack of hitting by Mets players
  • Losing games because we didn't get a timely hit
  • Travis d'Arnaud missing games because of injuries
  • And the Mets not hitting!

I was unhappy that the first game against the Giants ended in a no-hitter. But it served it's purpose. Things could be so much better if injuries had not crippled this team. A bat will come from some where, I just don't know who or when. With a home record of 29-12 at Citi Field, I've witnessed winning baseball by a large margin. But if I am going to be able to see any post season baseball the Mets are going to have to improve. Did I suggest a hitter would help?
