The Chicago Cubs are the Mets’ newest best friends down the stretch.
After last night’s game I am going to make a dangerous assumption and state that the Marlins are dead. So of course, they’ll go all the way!
Seriously though, that leaves the Cards and Bucs left as the last teams standing in the Mets’ way. Enter the Cubs. They play the Cards 6 more times and counting tonight’s game, they have the Bucs four more times. Here’s to 7 Cub wins!
The Cards and Bucs also play each other 6 more times and the Pirates have the Nats for three in Washington. The Mets only have 6 tough games left, all with Washington.
So it CAN happen. But WILL it?
