With the first month of the season in the books, the New York Mets currently sit with a record of 9-11, good enough for 4th place in the NL East, but only 2 games out of first place.

Now that April is over, it’s time to give out the Mets end-of-month team awards.

This past April was one of the more memorable ones in recent memory, as the New York Mets had a very hectic first month of the season to say the least.

The team missing their first 3 games against the Nationals, on top of missing several other games due to poor weather conditions, resulting in playing multiple double headers.

Through it all, the Mets have overcome quite a lot of adversity in terms of weather and inconsistent play, and despite finishing the month on a 3 game losing streak, they look to enter the month of May in a decent spot.

The Mets were limited to just 20 games in April and finished the month with a record of 9-11.  While they are 2 games under .500, the division is very tight, and a winning the next few series would easily get them into first place.

Baseball is of course a team effort and through out April, a few players really managed to stand out from the pack and helped to lead the Mets to several wins early on in the year.

However, there are a few players who have gotten off to a slow start to begin the year, and the Mets will need them to rebound if they want to take a serious run at the postseason.

Without further delay, here are the Mets’ “End of the Month” awards for April:
