Pinch me! Mets win seven of last eight.

Yeah, they're 22 games behind the division leading Phillies, and any combination of Phils wins and Mets losses adding to six will spell mathematical elimination. Still, they're performing well enough to hold third place in the NL East. If they can stay there--they now hold a four game lead over the fourth place Nationals, who they beat 7-3 tonight--they will improve on last year's standing, which has been my modest hope for them this season.
