They've won 6 of their last 7 games.

TweetDeck : “Once Upon a Time in Queens,” the 30 for 30 on the 1986 Mets, continues tonight at 8 ET on ESPN.

3 of those 5 have come against the Cardinals.

The team won a franchise-record 108 games and featured Keith Hernandez, Gary Carter, Dwight Gooden, Darryl Strawberry and Lenny Dykstra, among others.

TweetDeck : Buster Posey, Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford have all played together for a decade.
