I know Met fans are upset today and rightfully so as a Cub sweep is inexcusable. But here's the playoff match
Magic number of 7 to earn a playoff berth. Now we all know division is more desirable. If the Mets win just 1 of 3 on that series in Atlanta they clinch tiebreaker meaning in the event of a tie the Mets earn the division title. So the idea is to leave Atlanta with a 3 game lead once that series ends which would clinch it with 3 games left in season.
So get a win tonight push lead to 1 game and get it to at least a 2 game lead prior to Brave series.
So Met fans keep your head up as this division still very much in Met hands. Take a deep breath and get ready for a great October
