Yes, the Mets have been winning. No, this is not some kind of science fiction alternate reality or parallel universe.
Last night, the Mets won their 4,000th franchise victory, the 20th team to do so. Rookie pitcher Jacob deGrom was impressive, striking out 11 for the second time in 11 career starts. deGrom was only the third pitcher in Mets history to accomplish this. The other two? Nolan Ryan and Dwight Gooden. The Mets also collected 18 hits--a Citi Field record.
I would have posted this last night, but was too tired to wait until the end of the game.
Luckily, the good news continued tonight. Dillon Gee returned from the DL, and the Mets won their fourth game in a row (and their fifth win in six days.) They've won the first three of a four game series against the Atlanta Braves.
The Mets are still seven games under .500. But may I still dream?
