MUST WIN?

22 Apr

Is tonight’s game against the Cubs a must win?

Are there must wins in April?

Considering that Johan Santana is on the mound and that the Mets haven’t won a series yet, it kind of is.

A loss tonight will be a disappointment as the Mets started this homestand 2-0. A defeat today, especially with the ace on the mound, can be another disheartening loss for this franchise.

If the Mets can win this evening, they will improve to 7-9. It will also give them a great chance to get to .500 when they head to Philadelphia next weekend. With a tough Braves team and a solid Dodgers team up next, New York needs tonight to build momentum.

The Mets throw their ace on the mound on a spring night in Queens. It’s games like this that matter to make the games in September significant.
