Mets losing at the wrong time.

The Mets picked a fine time to begin a losing streak.  After winning 5 in a row during the last road trip the Mets lost the last 2 to the Nationals and lost last night to the Marlins 7-3 with the assistance of block head instincts by Mr Murphy. Not what you need to do when the team that is leading the Wild Card chase finally lost 2 in a row. The Braves who seemed to win every night lost last night to the Nationals.

The big winner has been the D Backs who have won 3 straight. They are winners of 7 out of 10 and are 2.5 games out of the Wild Card lead. With there win last night against the Giants, who have lost 4 of 5 with Beltran in the lineup, are only 1 game up on the D-Backs.

Mets have 2 more against the Fish and then have a 3 game series against the Braves this weekend which could be do or die for the Mets.  Wild Card Standings Below.

Pray for losses from those other teams because the Mets aren't really playing well enough to move up solidly into 4th. Losses, losses, losses. Unless the Mets can pull a miracle and play .700 ball from here on out, we've got to rely on losses from those other teams.
