And the teams records last year

3 Vs San Diego (76-86)
3 Vs Miami (69-93)
3 @ Philly (81-81)
3 @ Minnesota (66-96)
4 @ Colorado (64-98)

Schedule gives the Mets a good chance to get off to a fast start which I think will be needed this year.

I dont know how good San Diego is expected to be this year, but I'd hope the Mets could win 2 of three to start the season. Miami flat out stinks, and their only good pitcher is Nolasco, so once again the Mets should win at least 2/3. Philly is better than they were last year, and should be better than the Mets. While the Mets do play well in Philly, it is likely they lose 2/3. Then they have 7 more on the road. Ten straight road games is rough for any team. If they go 4-3 thats a good trip.

Realistically, I think a 9-7 start would be a good, and expected record. I could see them sweeping one of the teams at home, but struggling worse on the road. Either way, if they are over .500 I think they did a good job with it. If they get 10+ wins they will have started very strongly.

It's not how you start, it's how you finish. You should know this by now.

Detroit will be better this year than last, and should be a 90 win team. KC is much better than last year, and while they wont win 90, they should be over .500. The White Sox are also a good team. The Mets interleague schedule is still not easy.

a bad first half and it doesnt matter much how you finish. just ask the phils who had a bad first half in 2012 and a great final 2 months after they got utley and howard back.

Why would I be kidding with this? Were you alive when the Mets blew a 17 game lead with 7 games left to play? I guess not.

You know I am right with my statement.

"You know I am right with my statement. "

LOL right. You come into the thread and utterly overreact to the OP.

Did you know that if it rains on you, you will get wet.

You KNOW I'm right.

And actually no, you're not exactly correct.

What if the team starts 0-140, then win their last 22 games? If it only matters how you finish I guess they had a great season.

In 2005 Mets got off to an 0-5 start and finished 83-79.

If we woulda won those first 5 we woulda been half a game out from wild card by end of season. Being that close towards the final games might have given us an extra push to fight our way into the playoffs. Sometimes a hot start is a big difference maker

"What if the team starts 0-140, then win their last 22 games?"

The fact that you think that is possible just shows how little you know about baseball. Obviously, staying consistent is the key to having a good season, but finishing strong is very critical. It doesn't take a genius to figure out over the past four years that there have been teams who got off to fast starts and then fade away towards the end. Rangers last year, Red Sox and Braves year before, Padres in 2010, Mets in 2008 and 2007.

And for a Met fan to not agree with me shows how little you watch baseball.

Do you not understand what I was saying?

Your "gotta finish strong" statement had NOTHING to do with the OP, and OF COURSE teams have to be consistent. If they're close in the standings OF COURSE they have to finish strong, but MY POINT with the 0-140 and then 22 game winning streak was AN EXAMPLE of how the entire season can be considered critical.

Wow. Are you pretending to be dense?
