Week shows this might not be Mets Year

The New York Mets hit some home runs, had some key players have injuries reoccur while 2 of the big 4 starting pitchers dealt with health issues. Ladies and gentlemen, Your 2016 New York Mets! Today the Mets started 4 players who were not on the roster when the season opened. And another starter- SS Asdrubal Cabrera- came out of the game in the 1st with a troublesome knee. He joined Yoenis Cespedes(Quad) and Neil Walker(Back) on the bench. Not coincidently, these are 3 of the Mets hottest hitters. When you watch this team play  day in and day out, you start to think team trainer Ray Ramirez should get the team MVP. Injuries are part of the game but this season has been a nightmare and it is incredible that this team is within 5 games of a wild card spot. Says a lot about the character of the players, leadership of skipper Terry Collins and ability of GM Sandy Alderson to add spare parts who fit in. A James Loney, Kelly Johnson, Rene Rivera, hell, Jose Reyes- who I was against signing. I have felt for sometime this is not our year, that the Mets need to build towards 2017. They are and have but have also played good ball without sacrificing long term success. Keep it up, Guys. #LGM
