New York Mets First Half Awards
With the MLB All-Star festivities upon us, it is a bit slow in the sports world. With no major news breaking, what better way to pass time than to take a look back at the first half of the season?
For the Mets, it has been an up-and-down season thus far, as they entered the All-Star Break with a 45-50 record. Things have been looking up for the Amazins’ since falling a season-high 11-games under .500 July 5th against the Texas Rangers, finishing the first half with a strong 8-2 home stand to keep them in the playoff picture. The Mets are giving their fans hope, something that has proven time and time again to be a false prophecy. Will this be the season the Mets finally build towards the right direction? We will just have to find out.
