Mets 46-28 after 74 played

Saturday was another day when things can go very wrong (Randolph’s visit/non-visit to El Duque, El Duque’s performance itself culminating in the eventual 7-4 loss), but still not be a lost day (the ball is clearly the size of a watermelon to Jose Reyes, Darren Oliver’s relief outing).

And of course, there was another Phillies loss, this one courtesy of a Big Papi walk-off, something that’s really nice to enjoy from a distance and something we hopefully won’t have to see much of next week.  But Philly has company atop the second division of the NL East, beacuse when the Mets’ magic number fell to …

78…

… it was also over the Marlins, who also trail the Mets by 11 in the loss column. The Fish are 13 out of first, though, with the Phillies "only" 11 back.
