Scoreboard-watching with the Mets

Posted on: September 27, 2008 5:19 pm
 

The Brewers-Cubs game was playing on one television in the Mets clubhouse after this afternoon's 2-0 win over the Marlins, but only a few players stopped to watch. The Phillies-Nationals game was on a TV just outside the clubhouse, but only a security guard was watching.

And on the board that told the Mets what time to report for Sunday's game against the Marlins, there was also a reminder to pack for a one-day trip to Philadelphia, should the Phillies lose that game to Washington.

As of 5 p.m., as the Mets players and coaches were heading home, there was still a chance of a one-game playoff with the Phils, which would be Monday at Citizens Bank Park. There was still a chance of a one-game playoff with the Brewers, which would be Monday at Shea Stadium. And there was still a chance, of course, that the Mets' season would end with Sunday's game against the Marlins.

So many possibilities.

"We've taken care of what we could do today," David Wright said.

Yes, they had. For the second straight season, the Mets are alive right to their final scheduled game.

It didn't go well a year ago. Now they have another chance.

*****

There's a feeling in New York that the Marlins hate the Mets, and that it would make the Marlins' season if they keep the Mets out of the playoffs.

"That's not true at all," Marlins center fielder Cody Ross said today. "Any one of us in here would trade places with them in a heartbeat. The only thing for us is that if we don't make it (to the playoffs), we don't want anyone else to. That would be true if we were playing the Phillies, the Cubs, anyone. It's nothing personal (against the Mets). That wouldn't make our season."
