If Glavine/Leiter/Trax continue pitching this well all year the Mets have a legitimate shot even if it is a long-shot. Pitching wins championships.
The Marlins had a good run until recently and where pretty much dominating the NL East. But now that the Braves, Mets and Phillies have finally started "clicking on all cylinders", as the major leaguers like to say, they've fallen back to fourth, behind the Phillies Mets and Braves. If Glavine and Leiter can keep up their decent pitching and the Mets offense could score some runs, they might have a slight chance of making the playoffs. (Not very likely though, at least not this year).
Next year though I think they'll have a better chance if they can bring up Wright, keep Reyes healthy and get some production from somebody else but Piazza they could actually make a run at the playoffs...IMO
