Now Commenting On:

This is not good. 0-3 is bad. I know it's early, but look at the schedule. I'm afraid it may get a lot worse before it gets better...

The Mets next play the Reds at Citi Field, after which they travel to Atlanta, Anaheim and Arizona for nine consecutive road games in different time zones. They return home for a nine-game home stand, which includes the Braves and Cardinals, after which they go to Philadelphia.

There is a distinct possibility at this point, even if playing as well as they can, the Mets could begin May with a 10-17 record.

The good news is that these match ups will be behind them and the schedule will get easier. I know this ground can certainly be made up in the remaining 135 games. I hope it happens. However, I also know this city, I know how we behave, I know too well how local media can pounce on a narrative and beat a thing to death before it ever gets a chance to find new life.

This Mets team better have tough inner strength, a lot of focus and more skill than they've shown, because I have a feeling they're going to need it...
