Where We Stand

With 27 games down (exactly 1/6th of the season), the Mets are 15-12 which would translate into a 90-72 record for 162 games. Not bad considering how almost every facet of the team has been disappointing and almost every player has struggled at some point.
Also, it means any kind of improvement at all over the next 135 games should give the Mets enough wins to earn a playoff spot.

I'm usually more of a glass is half full kind of guy, but the reality is this team is playing exactly .500 ball over the last 11 months.

I agree this team has so many problems its hard to imagine them winning 90 games but the reality is last season doesn't count against them anymore. Right now they are a mediocre team but they have reason to expect that some key players (Santana, Beltran, Delgado, Perez) should outperform their April numbers over the course of the rest of the season.

The weird thing is, our starting pitching is probably twice as good as it was 2 years ago, but we are a far worse team. This team can't overcome a mediocre start, while that team could overcome a bad one. Such a big difference when Delgado isn't a threat in the lineup. Plus, in '06 the bullpen was actually a strength. People forget about guys like Bradford and Oliver who were huge.
