The surging Mets have won five in a row, eight of their last 10, and are 14-4 in the second half of the season so far.
Another win against the Reds on Wednesday night maintained New York’s label as one of the hottest, and one of the best, teams in all of baseball, and they believe their current stretch should be proof that they belong in that conversation.
“It shows we’re really good,” Jeff McNeil said. “We’ve been clicking all year, putting together some good at-bats. Everyone in this lineup is hot right now.”
McNeil has recorded a hit in 12 straight games, batting .412 in that span, while Francisco Lindor, the team’s WAR leader, is batting .407 in his last 16 games. That doesn’t even take into account the dominant starting rotation that now has a healthy Max Scherzer and Jacob deGrom.
“We're a dangerous team, we're a good team,” McNeil said. “We know that. Just come to the yard every single day and keep playing good baseball.”
