With its fences brought in, Citi Field was supposed to be an advantage for the Mets this season. And it was — for awhile. But now it seems New York can’t buy a win in Flushing.
The Mets return home to Citi Field this week to host their NL East rivals, the Miami Marlins and Atlanta Braves.
“I don’t think we’re playing as poorly as the record indicates,” David Wright said, “but this is when we need to get things turned around and moving in the direction we need it to.”
David Wright pulled the Mets from the depths of despair by snapping their losing streak and has been the Mets’ go-to guy all year.

During a week when they had a chance to move into sole possession first place in the National League East, the Mets’ defense has let them down.
This was supposed to be a rebuilding year; a season in which the Mets were going to be doormats of the National League East.
As this team celebrated with Johan Santana on the mound, it occurred to me that it might not be the last mound celebration we see here this year. Getting their first no-hitter might just be the tip of the iceberg.
