"When you play the New York Mets, you'd better be on your 'A' game," Terry Collins said after Tuesday's win. "They've gone back-to-back against two of the best power arms in baseball (Noah Syndergaard and Matt Harvey), and we've got another one (Jacob deGrom) they haven't seen," he added, referring to the Blue Jays, who entered Citi Field having won 11 games in a row.
“The confidence is there,” Michael Cuddyer said Monday, according to Newsday. “We feel good about our team and where we are. … It’s not pretty all the time, but you do what you can to get that job done.”
The Mets are just 10-19 this season on the road, where they'll play their next eight games while traveling to Toronto, Atlanta and Milwaukee, before returning home to play six games against the Reds and Cubs.
