The Mets may have found their way to jump start some success on the road: awful American League teams.

The Mets will face two of the worst teams in the AL, the Orioles and the Indians, to start off the road trip. The final series, the Mets will take part in the second half of the Subway Series, with the final three games taking place at Yankee Stadium.

Predicted Mets Road Trip Record: Yet again, I really want to see something out of this team on the road before I get excited. What would it take? The two teams before the Yankees are so bad, and the Mets’ pitching matches up with the Yankees so well in those three games… I’m thinking 6-3 is an excellent goal. Two of three in each of these series is very reachable.

Let’s face it, no one will take the Mets seriously until they can win on the road, so why not build up some confidence against some lower-quality teams like the O’s and the Tribe?

My name's Doug Gausepohl, and I'm 20 years of age. I'm majoring in Journalism in college, hoping to transfer to a four-year institution next spring. I'm a huge Mets/baseball fan! I love sports journalism, and it's my current career path that I couldn't be happier with. I'm also an avid New Jersey Devils fan. When I'm not perched in front of a computer or television screen with something sports related on it, I'm serving tables at T.G.I. Friday's, playing rec. softball, going out to eat with friends, or working on schoolwork. It'll be bitter sweet when the Mets win a World Series in my eyes, because even though it will be absolute ecstacy, it will mean this whole journey... is over, in a way. That said, that doesn't mean I won't take that year's title and shove it in every other baseball fan's face.
