The Mets are taking their talents to South Beach this weekend.

The Mets roll into Miami for a weekend set against the Marlins having won six of their last ten despite having 16 players on the IL.

Miami will debut their City Connect jerseys on Friday, paying homage to the Sugar Kings of Cuba. The bright orange jerseys look terrific, but the fear for the Mets shouldn’t be the uniforms. Jazz Chisholm appears to be on the cusp of stardom for the Marlins.

Can the Mets use this weekend to hang onto the top spot in the National League East?
