Here is what I wrote about the New York Mets at the beginning of the 2015 season:
The Mets will shock the world and capture an NL Wild Card berth.
The New York Mets did one better. Today, they clinched the NL East with a win a 10-2 victory over the hapless Cincinnati Reds today. The much maligned Matt Harvey threw 6 1/3 innings with Lucas Duda, Curtis Granderson and David Wright each hitting home runs. It marks the first time the Mets have made the post-season since 2006.
The Mets got off to a strong start with a 15-8 mark in April which included an 11-game winning streak. But the Washington Nationals would rebound in May and take over the division on May 20th. The Mets would rebound in June and regain first place on June 11th. But less than two weeks later, they would drop seven in a row and fall under .500. During that losing streak, they only scored more than two runs once. The impeccable pitching of Harvey, Jacob de Grom, Noah Syndergaard and the ageless Bartolo Colon plus Jeurys Familia wasn't enough.
