The Mets magic number was reduced to four last, no thanks to the Mets.
The Phillies lost a tough one to the Braves 10–6. The Braves are making a wild card bid, which is good news for us because the Mets seem bidless right now.
The Nationals pounded on us yet again Tuesday night and won 10–9. The Mets were down 10–3 heading into the bottom fo the 9th.
The comeback was fun to watch but I had the feeling they weren’t going to come through. Delgado’s deep foul ball did inspire a loud yelp, whcih woke up Mrs. Loge 13. Unfortunately, Carlos later struck out, while Endy Chavez was inexplicitly stealing third.
We’ll be in Loge13 tomorrow night. The Mets could possibly clinch Thursday…if the Braves can keep up their momentum and Phillip Humber pitches the best game of his major league career (which is a slam dunk since tonight is the first game of his major league career).
Which leads to an interesting predicament. The Braves have to win every game from here on out in order to have a chance for the wild card. They play two more against the Phils then head to Houston. The Braves have the pitching to pull it off. As a Met fan, would you rather face the Phils or the Braves in the wild card, if the 4th best team does come from the NL East?
