While the Braves face the Phillies, The Mets have to take on the World Champion Giants. It will be no easy task, but the Mets could potentially gain some ground on the Braves with the Phillies actually helping us out for a change. The Braves will have to face Roy Halladay tonight and tomorrow the Mets will have to face Mr.Lincecum. The Mets can help themselves tonight if they pick up a win tonight and stay pace for the NL Wild Card. It would help even more to take the series and win 2 out of 3.
