Mets Get Hot in July

Based on the data above, the team plays best in July, with a 45-30 record and .600 win-loss percentage. The early months of April (39-29, .574) and May (50-34, .595) also bode well for the Mets, who hope to get off to a good start under new manager Carlos Mendoza.

September (40-40, .500) is the only other month in which they have a .500 record or better. August (39-48, .448) and June (35-46, .432) have been the least successful months for New York.
