Tale of the tape:
Que se dillio:
Despite recently dropping two tough games against the Padres, the Mets' win last night over the slumping Dodgers extended their overall lead in the division to a season-high six games, pacing both the Phillies and the Braves by that margin. David Wright continues his MVP push, batting .419/.532/.663 over his last 24 games. He is now sixth in VORP in all of baseball at 58.5 and trails only a couple of Marlins in the National League (Hanley Ramirez at 70.0 and Miguel Cabrera at 62.8).
