How long has it been since the term Magic Number meant anything to the Mets? Maybe seven years: in 2008 the Phillies achieved their magic number and took the National League East pennant from the Mets.
17. That's the Mets' magic number to clinch the NL East. Yesterday it was 19. But the Mets beat the Nationals again: the second sweep of the year against Nats.
Last year the Nats won 15 of 19 games against the Mets; this year Mets have won 10 games and the Nats six.
Is this a changing of the guard?
Jeff and I will be there at the last game of the season, ready to celebrate.
