After winning the first game of the doubleheader, with a whisper of hope of winning the NL East, the New York Mets needed to come out firing on all cylinders and that they did at a historic pace.

Wednesday afternoon, the New York Mets hosted their first-ever Women's Day.

It's no secret that the New York Mets are hot, winning their record setting sixth straight series to start the season on Tuesday. Sure, you can point to Buck Showalter or Max Scherzer, even Mr. $341 Million, Francisco Lindor, is playing great. However, there is one Mets player, that has been around a few years, who is not getting as many headlines. Maybe he should.

Did Another Star Athlete Give New York Fans a ‘Thumbing?’
Last night, the Madison Garden Crowd was giving it to their home team, as New York came out and played a sluggish first half. Boston led by as many as 25 and the boo birds were targeting Knicks star forward Julius Randle. Then, in the 4th quarter, with New York in the midst of an amazing comeback, Randle made that familiar 'thumb down' gesture towards the fans. Uh, oh...What are these athletes thinking? Like, New Yorkers are going to stop when you do that to them? You'll get a finger right back and it won't be the thumb!

The 2021 New York Mets season was not a total disaster. However, to say it was full of disappointment and unwelcome drama, would be an understatement. Before fans returned to the stands with hopes of their new owner, Steve Cohen, delivering an all expense paid trip to the World Series, the team had already fired their general manager in mid January.

The New York Mets finally licked their wounds by sweeping the Washington Nationals in three games, right after getting swept out of first place by the Philadelphia Phillies. However, there isn't time to celebrate as the red hot Los Angelas Dodgers come to town to begin a brutal 13 game stretch for the Metropolitans against the top two teams in the National League West.

New Identity A Secret Weapon for Mets
But the biggest advantage for the Mets is the experience they had weathering those injuries and remaining in first place. How important will the evolution of the "Bench Mob" be, late in games, down the stretch? I bet you pretty important for Rojas and his coaching staff. Who will forget Kevin Pillar getting his face smashed by a fastball, bleeding all over the field and being back in the lineup with a face mask only a few days later. Does it really get tougher than that? All of this has helped develop an identity for this team.
