New York Mets

Although gloom and doom is the feeling of the past two days, there are ways the New York Mets can get themselves back into this series.

By David Hong

The New York Mets are not a most enviable position right now. They’ve lost the first two games of the 2015 World Series at Kansas City, starting at an 0-2 hole as this series shifts to New York for Games 3, 4 and 5.

The Mets lost a tough one in Game 1 in 14 innings – one they were two outs away from winning.

In Game 2, the Mets were outplayed in every phase of the game, getting blown out 7-1.


Hope lost?

Not yet.

There have been teams who’ve came back down 0-2 to win the World Series. One of them was the last Mets team to win the World Series back in 1986. The Mets actually lost the first two games at Shea Stadium before coming back to beat the Boston Red Sox.

The 1996 New York Yankees also lost the first two games at Yankee Stadium to an Atlanta Braves who that was coming off a World Series title the year before. But, as we all know, the Yankees came back to win it in six games.

It’s now the Mets turn. Even though they were badly outplayed in Game 2, there are still reasons why the Mets could still come back in win this, and here’s why:

Other than God, sports are my biggest love. My teams are the Mets, Knicks, NY Giants, NY Rangers and St Johns basketball (St. John's alumni). I especially love the Mets like crazy, more than any other team and seeing them win the World Series would be a dream come true and definitely the best sports moment. The Knicks are a close second. I also like to write, so combine that with my passion for sports equals a perfect scenario, I would love to do sports writing long term. If not that, then probably sports broadcasting, cause I love to talk sports as well. In addition to writing for ESNY, I'm also currently writing for Metsmerizedonline.
