Mets house of horrors: Turner Field
During the late 2000s, the Braves began to see a decline in their talented teams. However, the Mets still continued to struggle at Turner Field.
In 2008, the Braves finished the season 72-90. The Mets were in the playoff picture most of that season and played to an 89-73 record. Going further, they went 1-8 at Turner Field that season while beating the Braves in six of nine games at Shea Stadium.
In 2015, the season the Mets won the NL Pennant, they split ten games against the 67 win Braves at Turner Field but dominated them at Citi Field (6-3). Were the supernatural forces in the outfield at Turner Field?
In 2013, the Braves announced that the team would move to brand new SunTrust Park after the 2016 season. I can probably safely say that at that time, all Mets fans were relieved that their team would not have to play in Turner Field again.
But, the thought of the Braves continuing their dominance of the Mets in their home ballpark is still in the back of my mind. The likes of famed Mets killer Chipper Jones has made way for Freddie Freeman. Freeman looks like a carbon copy of Jones in the department of sticking it to the Mets.
Next: Mets bad luck continues, and is just getting worse
The first time they will be at SunTrust Park is on Monday. Hopefully we’ll finally able to escape the haunted house known as Turner Field and never look back.
