Five straight losses. Fortunately the Phillies lost to the Braves in extra innings so the Mets remain three games out. Though I was once hopeful that they might be able to stay in contention with this set of guys I have become less and less sanguine over the course of the past week. Not surprising, considering the way the Mets have played. You're never as bad as your worst days and never as good as your best; the Mets may be banged up and oftentimes managerially inept, but they're not this bad.
The Mets wrap up their series with the Brewers on Wednesday afternoon before heading to Pittsburgh for a makeup game.
