With yesterday's 12-1 win over the Marlins, the Mets took over first place in the division, for the first time since June 19. The Nationals are one game back.
No matter what happens next, this has been a fun season for the Mets. If my notes are correct, they've only dipped below .500 twice this year. The 11-game winning streak was exciting. After weeks with virtually no hitting, the team made two deals before the trading deadline and called up a young prospect.
We're not going to wait for next year. Let's go for it now.
