It's April and the standings are not particularly significant (unless, you're talking about the 4-16 Baltimore Orioles). But first place is still nice. Especially after the entire civilized world had written this team's obituary following a lackluster start to the season.
The Metsies have now won six on the bounce and eight of nine. They've got one more with the visiting Dodgers before heading down the NJ Turnpike for a weekend series with the Phillies.
