    Morning Briefing: How's the view down there?


    NEW YORK -- Look who’s alone atop the National League wild-card standings.

    With a sweep of the Twins, coupled with the Giants and Cardinals splitting a four-game series, the New York Mets (80-69) lead San Francisco (79-70) by a game and St. Louis (78-71) by two games. The top two teams will meet in the wild-card game for the right to face the Chicago Cubs in a division series. Thirteen games remain in the regular season.

    It was exactly one month ago that the Mets dropped a second straight game in San Francisco to fall two games under .500. Since then, the Mets are 20-7 and have moved a season-high 11 games over .500.

    The Mets now continue hosting MLB’s dregs as the Atlanta Braves arrive at Citi Field. Noah Syndergaard (13-8, 2.43 ERA) opposes right-handerAaron Blair (0-6, 8.23) in Monday’s 7:10 p.m. ET opener.


    The magic number to clinch a playoff spot is 12.

    Morning Briefing: Will Julio Teheran again torment Mets?


    NEW YORK -- And now the New York Mets face one of their tormenters.

    Atlanta Braves right-hander Julio Teheran is 6-3 with a 2.44 ERA in 14 career appearances (13 starts) against the Mets.

    Teheran (5-10, 3.18 ERA) opposes Robert Gsellman (2-1, 3.08) on Tuesday at 7:10 p.m. ET at Citi Field.


    Teheran's scoreless streak against the Mets reached 29 innings before he finally surrendered a two-run homer to Curtis Granderson back on Sept. 9 at Turner Field.

    The Mets now lead the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals by a game in the wild-card standings. San Francisco could have pulled back even with the Mets, but it blew a lead in the bottom of the ninth at Dodger Stadium and fell, 2-1. The Giants suffered their 30th blown save of the season.

    Mets' Matz (shoulder) could rejoin rotation Fri.


    PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Steven Matz is heading back to New York, with plans of getting into the Mets' postseason chase by the weekend.

    The left-hander, who hasn't pitched for the Mets since Aug. 14 because of tightness in his throwing shoulder, went through a long-toss workout at the team's facility Tuesday. He planned to leave for New York later in the day, with expectations of throwing a bullpen session at Citi Field on Wednesday.

    If all goes well there, the Mets could start him Friday against thePhiladelphia Phillies.

    "Feeling good and I'm ready to go," Matz said.

    Matz is 9-8 with a 3.40 ERA this season for New York, which entered Tuesday one game ahead of San Francisco and St. Louis in the National League wild-card race.

    Travis d'Arnaud can go ride the pine with him too as far as I'm concerned.

    Getting stepped on and stomped by the division door mat while trying to stay alive in the wild card race ain't gonna cut the muster.
    TC better pull his head out of his ass right quick...but I'm not gonna be holding my breath on that.

    It's like nobody wants the chance to face the Cubs in the LDS.

    They might get one of those spots, but even if they do this is going to be a much shorter playoff run than last year. No pitching depth and every day another guy leaves the lineup with no definite timetable on when he'll be back.

    Imagine if we could have had the entire lineup and pitching staff for the whole season...sigh
