When you're as hot as the Mets have been over the last few weeks, everyone in the baseball world is bound to take notice.
That includes the manager of the defending World Series champions, who played 62 games for the Mets in 2010.
Alex Cora is drawing inspiration from .. The Mets. "You look around the league and what's happening, at Citi Field [with the Mets], you win 14 out of 15, it happens. We know what we have to do the rest of the season. We can do it, but it starts here in Cleveland."- Ian Browne (@IanMBrowne) August 12, 2019
Indeed, before Sunday's loss to the Nationals, the Mets had won 14 of their last 15 games. After a walk-off loss to the Indians on Monday, the Red Sox currently find themselves eight games out of a wild card spot.
But before the Mets' hot streak began on July 23, they were tied for the second-worst record in the National League and seven games out of playoff contention.
A lot can change if things start to break right. Mets fans have always known that "ya gotta believe," and now the defending champions are looking to draw some inspiration from that, as well.
