What can ruin a 7-game winning streak?

Getting swept by the Yankees this weekend, that’s what.

After beating up on the dreadful Orioles and Indians, the Mets now face the much more competitive Yankees in the Bronx.

While the pitching match-up is identical to the first round of the 2010 Subway Series, the Mets enter this one as a different ball club.

When these two teams first met, the Mets were 20-22, trying to get back to .500. Since the Friday night loss to the Yankees, the Mets won 18 of their next 23 games.

It would be impressive for the Mets to take two this weekend, but a Met fan has to be content with winning one out of the three.

Getting swept is unacceptable and it can be crushing to this fan base.

For a team that is doing everything right, the fans are getting used to waiting for the other shoe to drop. A bad weekend, fans will once again doubt who this team truly is.

This weekend is just another weekend in a long season. But the Mets enter the Bronx as a team with something to prove, ready to show the league, and most importantly, the Mets fans, that they are a serious contender in the National League.

A bad weekend, and much of this month’s success is tainted.
