Since when is that a good thing for the Mets? I want the Mets to be 5 out going into September this time.

The Mets won their 7th straight game today, beating the Pirates 8-4.

You always want your team to be in first place, despite what has happend in September.

If the Mets make the play-offs, and go all the way, don't come back to this forum saying you believed this whole time.

Will the Mets be relevant in October (I couldn't resist)?

It's too early to tell (I, on the other hand, resisted plenty!)

Incidentally, does anyone else find it peculiar that with a Met seven-game winning streak putting them in first place, all those Phillie fans haven't posted anything today? Or perhaps I should say, all those alleged Phillie fans--since that town has a reputation for something slightly less than genuine loyalty to their teams.

I appreciate your confidence but I see nothing to back it up.
The starting pitching is still very fragile. They could easily lose 7 in a row right now.

I have no horse in this race but from an outsiders perspective, I don't see either team with much starting pitching, so I think 7 game winning streaks will be rare.

Don't get me wrong, I think both teams will be in the thick of things all year, but when you talk about winning streaks you need all 5 pitchers to pitch well or to go on an offensive tear, the latter is a more likely here.

It should be an interesting race, though.

With Johan's 0.77 ERA I think not.

Hmm...coincidence or not? Oliver Perez goes out of the rotation, and the Amazin's start winning.

I'm not a big fan of taking individual incidents and claiming to see "signs" in them, but last night's extra-inning 4-3 win against Atlanta was the sort of thing that the good teams do...and the also-rans don't. There are plenty of teams that could've been down 3-0 late in the game and let it go as "one of those nights." But the truth is, the Mets never stopped playing. They scrapped and hustled, and they tied the game up (I do not fault Jose Reyes for trying to stretch a double into what became an inning-ending out at third. The man was attempting to make something happen. OK, he didn't pull it off. But after that, the Mets were definitely under the Braves' skin, and the tide turned).

Oops, I'm sorry. Mets-Braves is off topic. As relates to the Phillies: last night's Met team is the one they have to worry about. Those guys from last September? Fuhgeddabout them!
