As summer gives way and we celebrate Labor Day, what things can happen in the next month to give you hope during the long cold offseason?  Will it be in the form of a team that while broken, finishes strong? The continued emergence of guys like Lagares?  The healthy pitching of Niese and Gee?  The young bullpen arms including the newly acquired Vic Black?  Or has the Harvey injury completely wiped out any hope for your enjoyment of the rest of 2013 and possibly longer?

Personally, I look forward to this next month as I believe it will help determine the path the Mets follow this offseason.  So while I am not all sunshine and roses, any Mets baseball is better than no baseball so..Bring on that Indian Summer and enjoy a cold one out on the deck this weekend while watching your favorite team.
