What better than a Labor Day matinee?

The Mets’ six-game win streak last week made them at least a little more interesting in the National League East race.

On Monday, they finish a wrap-around weekend set with the Nationals before three games in Miami against the Marlins — another opportunity to make a dent in the division standings.

This is a big week for the Mets. Their lineup is healthy and hitting the ball; both El Mago and Mr. Smile are hitting the ball with authority and the pitching has, more times than not, been good enough to earn a W thus far in September.

Let’s keep the good times rolling and see if the Mets can climb back into this thing!
