Early Season New York Mets/Washington Nationals Not That Important

May 17, 2016

Please annoying media, do not make a big deal out of tonight’s game, nor the upcoming 3 game series between the defending National League champion, New York Mets and the Washington Nationals.

Likely, there will be good crowds at the Mets’ Citi Field and that is all well and good, but the season has not even reached the one quarter point.

Last year the Mets had lost a horrible game for them to the San Diego Padres just before the Nationals came to N.Y. for a three game weekend series in late July. Oh the doom and gloom surrounding the Mets via the hyping, “just have a story,” “feed the 24 hour news cycle,” media!

The Mets won all 3 games vs the Nationals and won the N.L. East fairly easily. It is a long season, one whose “tournament”  includes the horrific wild cards and while each game counts and at least on paper, a team’s chances are better with a division title than a wild card berth, these games and maybe ones in the entire regular season,  do not mean all that much.
