Well, what a surprise! The New York Mets are 17-13 in the early MLB 2010-11 season. The team is currently holding on to second place in the National League East Standings with only a game back from the division leading Phillies.

Why are the Mets so productive in the early season you ask? One of the players that is slowly evolving the team would be the team’s everyday catcher Rod Barajas. The catcher has already hit 9 home runs, 2 of those were walk-off homers to win the game, and has been an essential back-stopper for the team. If Barajas can continue this great play, the New York Mets might actually taste the playoffs once again since 2006.

To those who follow the Metropolitans, many of you knew of the team’s desire to acquire Bengie Molina from the SF Giants. Molina decided to stay in San Francisco and play for the Giants. This decision prompted the New York Mets to go in a different direction and sign Mr. Barajas, who I might add, had great pop in the bat slamming 19 home runs with the Toronto Blue Jays. Some of you might think of it as a perfect scenario, the power of faith, but it all falls down on a great decision by the team’s management. Now, we would all agree that Minaya, the Mets general manager has not always pulled his end of the bargain, especially by not signing a premiere starting pitcher to assist the rotation. In this particular case, he has found a diamond in the ruff in Barajas, who seems like a catcher that has something to prove to everyone around the league.

If Barajas continues to be productive, with Ike Davis also coming to play, the Mets have a very good chance in doing something special. If David Wright, Jason Bay, and Jose Reyes also continue to do the same thing every year and avoid injuries, this team can be very dangerous. The Mets are currently holding a 9 game winning streak at home and look to sweep the San Francisco Giants today starting at 1 PM at Citi Field.
