Just when you think the New York Mets are playing good baseball, they fall right back to their previous problems and got swept at home by the Toronto Blue Jays this weekend. They are currently 30-30 and have a massive series at the Atlanta Braves this weekend. They have just been way too inconsistent all season long. The offense was really bad this weekend and could not give their starters any run support. Manager Buck Showalter is obviously showing some signs of frustration in his post game pressers. Below is my quick take on this as seen in The Times Union:
The New York Mets open a big three game series Tuesday at first place Atlanta a team they trail by 5 games in the National League East. It’s a chance for the Mets to take at least two out of three because Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander are pitching games two and three. The Mets are a disappointing 30-30 after being swept by Toronto at Citi Field, and need something to jump start its season and winning a series against the Braves would do it. The Mets still have a lineup that should be able to produce runs, and if Scherzer and a Verlander can settle in, the Mets are good enough to win a division title.

I'm sure the Mets will be fine but they need to be more consistent especially on the offensive side of the ball and need to try and win the series on the road at their NL East rival the Braves.
