It was the opposite.
This season, the Mets are firing on all cylinders and sit at 3-2 without playing a home game. For a team that went 32-49 on the road last season, they're off to a good start.
Jose Reyes is 100 percent for the first time in two seasons, batting .280 with two stolen bases in as many tries. They getting excellent production out of David Wright (.364/.417/.545, one HR and five RBI), Ike Davis (.368/.455/.684, one home run and six RBI) and even Willie Harris (.357/.438/.714, one home run and four RBI).
Even Jon Niese, in his second full season in the majors, and R.A. Dickey, looking to prove 2010 wasn't a fluke, were fantastic in each of their first starts of the season against the Florida Marlins.
