Please use this thread all week to comment on any Mets-specific topic you wish.
From 2014-2020, the Mets were 72-52 against the Marlins. Yet, the perception existed that the Mets struggled against the Marlins. Now, maybe they didn’t take them behind the woodshed like the Braves did. But given that the Mets finished under .500 four of those years, you won’t find many teams that they have a better record against the past seven seasons.
This year, the Mets should have done better against the Marlins. They’re only 3-6 against them so far this year after their disastrous 1-3 mark against them in a series in the beginning of August which set the stage for a lousy month. The good news is they still have 10 games against them to alter the perception of how they do against the Marlins.
But somehow it’s hard to shake the feeling that even if the Mets go 8-2 against the Marlins down the stretch to finish with an 11-8 record against them to up their head-to-head record to +23 in the past eight seasons – people will still say they struggle against the team from Florida.
We should all struggle like that.
