Mets A Game Back In Tight Division Race

There's only one other division right now that has a race seperating the first and second place teams by 1 1/2 games. As it stands, the first and fifth place teams in the NL East are seperated by a game and a half. The last place Marlins (I like saying that) trail the first place Nationals. The Mets are tied with Philly at a game back, and the Braves stand half a game back.

The Mets did what they had to do by taking the series against the Giants, including splitting a double header last night. They pounced all over Jason Schmidt, which I thought would be our toughest pitching matchup, while Bret Tomko shut us down.

A day off, then Houston is in town. They've been struggling, so two out of three is expected.
