Call me a homer, but I think it's still the Mets. If the 'Stros get in, though, they have a real chance, but that's a big if.
Welllll they are 11-15 in the month of September. So your being a homer. Playoffs start a whole new season and if it started right now the Astros are the best team for the NL
1/2 game out, all the momentum in the world. Still, they wouldn't be in it if the season ended today (it doesn't, but it ends in 3 games) so yes it's a big if.
Yes, they are 11-15 in the month of September. But they still have the tools, and they have won 94 games - most of them without Pedro.
Am I worried that the Mets are stumbling into the playoffs? Yes. If they play the Stros, do I think it's going to be a tough series that could go either way? Yes. Do I still think they are the class of the NL? Yes.
Call me a homer. I don't care. Their lineup is still scary good, and their pitching has been Pedro-less for months.
