After dropping a disappointing home-opening series, the New York Mets stay in Flushing, as they try to get back on track .

The New York Mets play host to the Miami Marlins, beginning Monday, in a three game divisional series.

Following a congestion of bad lucky and sloppy play, the Mets find themselves with a 2-3 record through five games. This past weekend, New York won their home-opener against Philly, 7-to-2, then dropped the next two, as their bats rapidly went cold.

Miami isn’t in much better shape. They’re 1-3 on the season, thus far.

So, at this point, after one week of baseball, the Metropolitans sit 1.5 games behind the Washington Nationals for first place in the National League East.

The horror.

Don’t worry. Fun times are ahead.

This series against the Fish will include the season debut of rookie southpaw Steven Matz, the final element to the Mets’ current Core-4 of aces.

After game three, the two teams share an off-day, before flipping over to the sunshine in Miami for another set of three.
