Everyone has wondered what had happened to this Mets team ever since their collapse last September. This season didn't look much better, but finally the talent on this team is showing what it can do. The Mets have now won six straight and are knocking on the door to the NL East lead. Oliver Perez won 15 games last year, and he has shown signs of regaining that form. Perez has had problems with control, but he has ironed them out. After walking 43 in his first 60 innings, Perez has now issued just 11 free passes over his last 37.1 innings. Colorado is just 8-28 over their last 36 games on the road. We like the value on this hot Mets team at home.
