Quote of the Day: why the Mets are doing well

According to Rich Coutinho of CBS New York, it’s …

Chemistry in the clubhouse.

It can extend winning streaks and snap losing streaks. The Mets have great chemistry, and that’s been been of the biggest reasons New York sits in second place in the competitive NL East.

And here I thought it was because of an MVP-caliber season from David Wright, offensive contributions from everyone else besides Ike Davis that are exceeding expectations, a resurgent Johan Santana helping the pitching look respectable when it was anticipated to be awful and an great deal of good fortune which has allowed the team to out-perform their Pythagorean record by a full five games.

But hey, if you wanna go with “chemistry,” be my guest.
