One week after a disappointing outing in their first suaree with Atlanta this season, the Mets rolled through the House that Ted Turner built (with some help from the Olympics) like they never have and then, probably even MORE impressive, they received a great starting pitching outing from none other than Victor Zambrano. The same Victor Zambrano who Mets fans were about to throw off the Williamsburg Bridge a week ago. Maybe something special is brewing exactly 20 years later.
The NL East is a very winnable division. Maybe it won't even take 90 wins. The Mets can take advantage of one more week of beating up on the division. They succees and we may very well be looking at an 8-10 game lead before May 10th. They still probably need another reliable started and reliever to avoid an inevitable down spell. But the more I watch them, the more I think they can do this.
