Welcome to a sub-.500 and third place, Mets fans.
Both the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Mets are 3-7 over their last 10 games. The puts the Florida Marlins in the “surging” category, as they have won six of their last 10.
With a .534 winning percentage, the Phillies are the “worst” team to be leading a division. The Washington Nationals, undoubtedly the worse team in the game, has a putrid 22-52 record, good for a .297 winning percentage.
The combined records of all five teams is 172-203. That is a .458 winning percentage.
All this keeps me believing that the Mets actually have shot at the NL East title. And I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.
