Asdrubal Cabrera and the NY Mets defeated the Miami Marlins last night in comeback fashion to make history.

The Mets are off to the races in 2018 by having the best start in franchise history. The baseball world is in a state of shock, and apparently don’t believe the Mets are real.

When you look at the team on paper, they should be 9-1. Hell, they should be this great out of the gate every year since 2015, but of course we know how those seasons went.

When Justin Boar gave the Marlins the lead in the 7th inning last night, all hope was not lost. Watching the Mets play the previous 9 games, you almost knew there was a chance the Mets would be back.

Sure enough, the 8th inning started the comeback as Wilmer Flores and Asdrubal Cabrera each hit a solo home run, Cabrera’s second of the night.

Yoenis Cespedes completed the task in the top of the ninth to give the Mets the win.

An observation I made on the Cespedes go ahead triple was the enjoyment in the dugout, especially from the Mets young centerfielder Michel Conforto. At the 0:22 mark, his smile is so big while he’s getting high fives from teammates, it tells you that this team has the potential to not simply make noise, but make the postseason.

Ballplayers kill to be on a team where everything just clicks. That dugout was amped up and if this was the World Series, the other team would be getting swept, there is no doubt in mind.

The season has only just begun and there are 152 games remaining for the NY Mets, and it’s going to be a wild ride, but if the team remains healthy and the starting rotation gets into a groove, the NL East crown may not be that out of reach as so many predicted back in February.
