Game Times, Predictions

  • Game 1: Monday, 7:05 p.m. ET, SNY/CSPh
  • Game 2: Tuesday, 7:05 p.m. ET, SNY/CSPh
  • Game 3: Wednesday, 7:05 p.m. ET, SNY/CSPh

Now’s the time for the Mets to pounce and prey on the bad teams.

Sure, the Phillies have a better record now but their pace isn’t sustainable over the long haul. Simply put, they’re not a good Major League team.

The Mets will sweep the Phillies, leaving them with an 8-6 record as they fly to Atlanta to take on a Braves team that closely resembles a Minor League squad.

It’s time to right the ship. New York’s bats and pitching are ready to produce for the next 151 games.

Bold Prediction

Aside from Thor pitching a eight shutout innings on Monday, David Wright will hit his first home run of the season, as the Mets sweep.

The Captain loves playing at Citizen’s Bank Park.

JWatch his first AB last year after missing 3+ months dealing with spinal stenosis.

All in all, he has the most zingers by any visitor in Citizens Bank Park history, hitting .292 with 20 homers and 67 RBI in 97 career games.
