Do we have a shot at the playoffs this year?

Well the Mets are 3-3 against the Phillies so far this year. The Mets match up well against them. Florida has owned us so far this year but when the Mets met them previously they were in a bad slump. Florida is not that intimidating this year and I see the Phillies as the main threat.

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.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

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

the mets record within the division did them in... they have a chance at the playoffs this year, but i really think they are another year or so away from being playoff contenders again....
