Wow, dare I believe? The Mets swept the Nationals and are now in a tie for first place. As much as I thought this was possible, having it be a reality is . . . Well, I’m a Mets fan. We are diehard optimists up until that very last day of the season. I even think that this year we’ll see some playoff action and who knows what else. Dare I dream of a World Series spot? You bet I will!

Part of the reason for that is a stable of talented young arms, including Jacob deGrom who pitched an amazing inning at the All Star Game, throwing only 10 pitches to retire the side. Wow. An All-Star record by they way. Not to mention that he was the National League Rookie of the Year last year!
