You can almost sense something special IS actually happening. After a horrible first-half road record, the Mets had a hugely successful road trip of 8 wins and only 1 loss, completing a four-game sweep of the Phillies after grabbing three straight from the Rockies. But what is so glaring is HOW they are doing it.

MurphyCelebratesGameBreakingHitWhat HAD been the worst offense in the National League produced a massive onslaught pounding 18 home runs and scoring 73 runs during the seven-game win streak. As much as the hitting has taken center stage, the defense has pulled off what are almost magical plays in the field. Sean Gilmartin and Carlos Torres have provided some much needed middle relief support and both contributed by throwing blanks and getting key hits at the plate.

Everybody is getting into the act and everything just seems to be going right. You can sense the team is gaining more and more momentum and more and more confidence. You might even say that they are starting to display some of the swagger that comes along with a team that expects to win. It just seems like the positive energy is becoming highly contagious and could provide for a very exciting stretch run.
