Despite yesterday’s loss in the series finale, after watching this team all season I’m finally allowing myself dreams of the postseason.
As we enter the 4th of July “week” (Wednesday 4ths suck) the Mets are 1 game behind LA for the WildCard.
We’re absolutely within striking distance of the Nats for the division but we can taste the Wild Card right now at just 1 game back.
Don’t get me wrong, the WC is no gimmie considering the Dodgers are getting Kemp back and there are 7 teams within 5 games of each other for the final playoff spot.
The Pirates have to prove they can win before they get my respect.
The Braves of course are scary… except Bobby Cox isn’t there anymore and neither is Chipper really.
St Loo is the most dangerous team in the race IMO. Larussa’s gone too, so is Pujols, but they still scare me.
Arizona and Miami, i respect them but I think we can outplay them.
No reason in the world we can’t compete for this Wild Card until the final week of the season.
… now watch the bottom fall out.
