The New York Mets will return home on Friday to start a three-game series against the red-hot Kansas City Royals.

Against all odds, the Royals are second in the AL Central with a 9-4 record, led by the phenomenal Bobby Witt Jr.

The Mets, however, are also playing some high-level baseball.

After a sluggish start, they have won five of their last seven, including two out of three against the powerful Atlanta Braves.

The Mets apparently found their stride and are finally playing competitive baseball after looking lost in their first two series.

One of the reasons behind the Mets’ awful start was Francisco Lindor not producing as expected.

The All-Star shortstop, who became a 30-30 player last year, is slashing a meager .098/.203/.176 with a .380 OPS.

He has only two extra-base hits, a double, and a home run, and they were both achieved in the same game.

A Mets insider is proposing an interesting approach to try and get Lindor going.

Mets fans should give Francisco Lindor a standing ovation tonight at Citi Field as the Mets return home (via @DannyAbriano)” SNY tweeted.

Last season, the Philadelphia Phillies did a similar thing with Trea Turner.

Turner was struggling badly to that point, but fans gave him a warm welcome to a summer game.

Starting from that moment, Turner went off.

These things seem insignificant, but if Mets fans can do something, it’s that: pulling toward the same side as opposed to calling him names and booing him.

If it doesn’t work, they didn’t lose anything.

If it does, they will have woken up a sleeping beast.
