9/27 - Mets 3, Phillies 2
So the Mets were officially eliminated from the Wild Card race tonight when the Astros beat the Cardinals. So what! We knew that was going to happen. But who could have predicted that they would win 9 out of 11 and in the process knock out the Marlins, the Nationals and now (most likely) the Phillies out of playoff contention. You know what? That makes this Mets fan happy. Third place right now, with a good solid chance at finishing with 82-83 wins. And how about Aaron Heilman in the closer role tonight? I'd like to see a bit more of that before the season ends.
