    Morning Briefing: At least the other contenders lost too

    NEW YORK -- If the New York Mets miss the playoffs, it’s thePhiladelphia Phillies who will play the spoiler role.

    After suffering a dispiriting three-game sweep against the Atlanta Braves, the Mets now have 10 games remaining. Seven of those are against the Phillies, beginning with a four-game set at Citi Field to complete the Mets’ final regular-season homestand. The Mets’ other three games are at Miami.

    “We’re still right there,” Terry Collins said. “I do believe we are still in the hunt. You can’t ask for more than that. We’ve just got to fight our way out.”

    Despite a dispiriting loss Wednesday, the Mets remained in a three-way tie for the two wild-card spots with the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants. All three teams suffered defeats Wednesday to fall to 80-72.

    Seth Lugo (4-2, 2.35 ERA) starts opposite Phillies left-hander Adam Morgan (2-10, 5.49) in Thursday’s 7:10 p.m. ET series opener

    pretty good article....

    Just when you think the Mets can't make the postseason ...


    NEW YORK -- The New York Mets aren’t going to make the playoffs. Not without Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Steven Matz, David Wright

    The Mets are not going to make the playoffs. Not when their starting lineup includes longtime minor leaguers T.J. Rivera and Eric Campbell, and their starting rotation features not-exactly top-shelf prospects Seth Lugo, Robert Gsellman and Gabriel Ynoa

    The Mets are not going to make the playoffs, not when they get swept by the last-place, second-worst record in baseball Atlanta Braves, a team that beat them 10 times in 19 meetings. Not when they trail the Phillies by two runs in the ninth inning and two runs in the 11th inning …

    But wait, this is baseball, a sport many of its fans say is the best in the world. One thing about it: Logic and reason don’t always apply.

    Had it recorded and just finished a few minutes ago. Not sure if you watched all game but Duda just missed a walkoff by like an inch of the foul pole in the 10th. Definitely game of the year so far.

    Yeah..that's right...and I wish TC would give him some more AB's and starts at 1B down the stretch..ya just never know...he's the type of player that when he puts together some good AB's and gets some hits.. could get hot when we need it most.

    Gotta get Flores back on the field too. He was hitting the ball good when he got hurt a few weeks back.
    But please....No more Jay (instant K) Bruce. (unless it's an absolute last resort emergency)

    Morning Briefing: Mets get some breathing room in wild-card race

    NEW YORK -- And now it is Sean Gilmartin's turn as the New York Mets’ unheralded backups continue to keep them afloat.


    With Noah Syndergaard scratched because of strep throat, Gilmartin is set to become the 12th starting pitcher the Mets have used this season. Gilmartin (0-0, 4.76 ERA) opposes Philadelphia Phillies right-hander Alec Asher (1-0, 2.16) on Saturday at 7:10 p.m. ET at Citi Field.

    Gilmartin has not thrown more than 18 pitches in an appearance since returning from Triple-A Las Vegas on Aug. 25. As a result, his appearance may be brief.

    With eight games remaining, the Mets now own a one-game lead on theSan Francisco Giants and have a 1½-game lead over the St. Louis Cardinals in the wild-card standings.
