Mets Tied for First Place

As of this moment, the New York Mets are tied for first place in the NL East. See? I can post positive news.

Unfortunately, that position in the standings is guaranteed to change by the time this day is over — unless this afternoon’s game between the Nationals and Braves is postponed.

Enjoy it while it lasts … we have no idea how long the Mets will remain atop the standings.
