Mets 31-19 after 50 games

Wright_2How can things go wrong when we’ve got David Wright? And, I never thought I’d type "Endy Chavez was a really solid pickup, just like Jose Valentin" but I just did. But the Mets’ 8-7 win over the Diamondbacks on Memorial Day Monday wasn’t merely another nailbiting comeback, part of a string of victories in ’06 that the club just didn’t have the talent or guts to seal in recent years. It also, when combined with the Braves’ ugly loss to Los Angels, dropped the Mets’ magic number to…

108.

That’s over the Braves and Phillies, who won, pulling to withing a half-game of Atlanta. The Mets lead over the Braves stands at 4 1/2 games, 5 over Philly.
