4. Fortitude

The 2015 Mets are more resilient. The 2006 Mets have ran away with the division all year, even seeming too easy to them at the start. They didn’t go through a lot of tough moments in the regular season. So when they faced their first real test in the NLCS, they didn’t seem to handle it well overall.

The 2015 Mets have been resilient all year. Through the injuries, performance struggles at times, botched Carlos Gomez trade, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise and finally the Harvey innings limit saga, the Mets have overcome them all and are NL East champions. Their resiliency should pay off for them in the playoffs because they know how to overcome them.
