Not very often is an 11-game West Coast swing the cure for what ails a team but that seems to be the case with the 2012 Mets. After opening the second half with a 1-11 record, thanks to a bullpen that contributed mightily to an 0-4 record in one-run games along with two other losses in extra innings, the Mets have gone 6-4 in their first 10 games against the NL West. With their closer back, their one-batter LOOGY on the DL and the manager’s willingness to finally limit the PA for their LF with the fork sticking out of his back – it’s easy to fall in love with this team all over again. So, here’s a quick rundown on the 25 guys currently on the roster. Feel Good GuysIke Davis – In his last 50 games has a .908 OPS despite a .264 BABIP.Daniel Murphy – Has stayed healthy at 2B and provided a nice offensive player.David Wright – Would be an MVP candidate if the Mets had a better bullpen in July.Ruben Tejada – All he does is hit line drives.Scott Hairston – Has a .937 OPS versus LHP.Justin
