3) NY Mets fans who think the 2022 team is one of the best in team history aren’t wrong
The Mets didn’t go on a hot streak like the Atlanta Braves or Philadelphia Phillies. They haven’t gone on any cold streaks either—like the Atlanta Braves or Philadelphia Phillies. What truly has been the most impressive part of this season for the Mets is how consistent they have been throughout.
If you’re one of the many believers in this team, your biased opinion has a ton of credibility. The Mets have been able to beat some of the best teams around. The only good team they haven’t beaten is themselves. And isn’t that the most important one to defeat?
Your gut may be telling you that this team is different. If so, you aren’t wrong. They’ve made decisions they never would have in the past. Robinson Cano was designated for assignment. Dominic Smith was sent down. Max Scherzer got paid as much as an entire 26-man roster. The Mets have a goal in mind so it’s not so implausible for fans to gather around the pyre in worship of what they can do.
What has been especially promising is just how many wins they’ve piled up in the absence of Scherzer and Jacob deGrom. You’re probably a little sick of hearing it but it’s important to note. They have dipped into their starting pitcher reserve and managed to stay atop the National League East.
The 2022 Mets are a good baseball team. Even if your opinion of this makes you biased, you’re far from wrong for thinking it.
