After reeling off an eight-game winning streak that included a sweep of the division rival Washington Nationals, the New York Mets are just counting down the days until their first National League East division title since 2006, which was also the team’s last postseason appearance.
With 17 games left on the schedule, the New York Metropolitans have an 8.5-game lead in the division, and even with their past ominous history, this year’s Mets team shows no signs of pulling off yet another unspeakable collapse.
After the series finale tonight against the Miami Marlins, the Mets close out the regular season with a three-game set against the New York Yankees, the Atlanta Braves, a four-game series with the Cincinnati Reds, a three-game series with the Philadelphia Phillies and finally, one last series against the Washington Nationals.
