Last time we joined you for a road trip preview, even though the teams on the schedule featured lower-talented rosters, the Mets’ 8-18 record on the road at the time gave all skeptics some fuel for the thought of another horrible road trip for the Amazin’s.
The Mets posted a more than impressive 7-2 record on that road trip, pushing their overall road record to a respectable 15-20.
It only gets harder this time around, as they face off against the rival Florida Marlins and Washington Nationals. They may be the two worst teams in the division record-wise, but the Mets are currently 3-8 this year on the road against divisional opponents. That will need to change quickly in order for the Mets to have a successful road trip.
