Historically, June hasn’t been a great month for the New York Mets with many of their seasons ending in the third month. Once again, the Mets had a tough schedule with their starting rotation getting hurt, setting the stage for another June slump. Although the Mets lost their third consecutive game last month, they posted a 13-12 record for their first win in June since 2012.
June’s defining moment was a 10-game West Coast trip to Los Angeles and San Diego. It was very similar to the 13-game stretch against the Dodgers & Giants last August that ended in defeat for the Mets. The team managed to manage a 5-5 record on the trip, allowing them to weather a strong push from the Atlanta Braves and maintain their first place in the National League East. The Mets won a homestand against Milwaukee, Miami and it brought more positive vibes for the team and any sports betting fans hoping to place some winning bets. However, their smooth sailing came to an abrupt end, squandered by the Houston Astros who won four games from the Mets at the end of the month.
New York has some good news on the way, though. Max Scherzer may be back in their rotation next week, while Jacob deGrom might return soon after the All-Star Break. This will add some star power to their top rotation. Trevor May is recovering from an injury, but could provide a boost to a struggling bullpen. Billy Eppler, the GM, will have an opportunity to address his roster’s issues. This includes building a stronger bridge to Edwin Diaz and finding another bat that can help extend a lineup that is getting shorter behind its top five hitters.
July’s schedule is much more relaxed. The Mets will play eight games against winning teams in July, with three in Atlanta before the All-Star Break. The Mets’ problem is that they have 17 consecutive games before the break. This includes seven road games and only seven home games. The Mets will have to face stiff competition from the Texas Rangers and Cincinnati Reds as well as the Miami Marlins, Miami Marlins, Chicago Cubs, and Miami Marlins. The Mets’ toughest stretch is the one immediately following the All-Star Break. They host the San Diego Padres, New York Yankees, and Chicago Cubs on a five-game homestand before another trip to Miami to close the month.
The Mets will play a total of 25 baseball games in July. Our verdict? They should try to get rid of bad teams and build up their record. A 17-8 record would include a win in Atlanta. The Mets would be able to pull off this feat and leave July with a record 64-37. They will also be able to consolidate their position in the NL East with a strengthened roster following the deadline for trades. New York’s June win was a strong effort, but they must continue to build on it in order to win the division.
