Mets Universe Realigned
Tweet This Post
The Mets lost a heartbreaker to the Cardinals in the 2006 NLCS, but we all assumed that that was a hiccup on the way to bigger and better things. The Mets came out swinging in 2007; After watching the Cardinals hoist the World Series banner they promptly swept the defending World Series Champions in three games to open the season. This result only strengthened the argument for the NLCS being a hiccup; clearly the Mets were better.
Well they did end up being much better than the Cardinals, but not better enough. A lot went wrong after that, even if 2007 and 2008 were pretty decent seasons most of the way through. Everything felt out of whack, tumbling out of control and into disaster. The universe was clearly askew.
Five years later the Mets beat the Cardinals in three straight games, starting off with their first no-hitter. Perhaps the course has been corrected and the Mets are now on the dynasty path we suspected they might’ve been on in early 2007. Perhaps this is the start of a playoff run that will launch the Mets back to the top of the league. Perhaps we’re stronger for having struggled through those years to get where we are today.
Or maybe we should just enjoy the ride and stop worrying about how to define the season before it’s over. Let’s Go Mets!Follow @Ceetar
