Mets 32-20 after 52 games
I sing the praises of Endy Chavez for the second consecutive post: "La la la la." It was another wasted effort by Pedro (and thankfully for Brandon Webb, who was similarly tremendous), the bullpen was spot-on — again. But the clucth hitting, while late, wasn’t too late and it was just little enough in the Mets’ 1-0 win over the Diamondbacks Wednesday, a win that further lowered the Mets’ magic number to…
That’s over the Braves and Phillies. The Mets lead over the Braves stands at 4 1/2
games, 5 over Philly. For context’s sake, only the Cardinals have a lower magic number, and it’s by just a single game, at 105.
