Are the Mets really still in it?  As much as I love this team, they really have their backs to the wall. The Mets are 8 back in the wild card standings and according to coolstandings.com, they have a  4.1 % chance to make the play-offs.

The only way the Mets can make a push is if they start another giant winning streak and Braves fall apart. The Braves will be in Citi-Field this weekend, the Mets need to put up and shut up and sweep them in order to make things interesting.

Looking at the Games ahead:
