Mets Wild Card Scenarios

Following up on yesterday’s post about what needs to happen for the Mets to claim a Wild Card spot, and yesterday’s game, the current Wild Card standings are as follows:

Team Record GB
Nationals  84-68 +1.0
Brewers  84-70 0.0
Cubs  82-72 2.0
Mets  80-73 3.5
Phillies  78-74 5.0

With nine games remaining in the season, the Mets need to go on a hot streak while hoping two of the other teams fall back to the back while the Mets stay ahead of the Phillies. Putting the Phillies aside, here is what needs to happen for the Mets to catch each of the teams ahead of them.

Mets Nationals Brewers Cubs
10-0 6-5 6-3 7-2
9-1 5-6 5-4 6-3
8-2 4-7 4-5 5-4
7-3 3-8 3-6 4-5
6-4 2-9 2-7 3-6
5-5 1-10 1-8 2-7
4-5 0-11 0-9 1-8
3-6 Eliminated

Keeping in mind the Mets need for two of those events to happen. That’s how it looks in numbers. Given the schedules and the injuries, anything less than 8-2 is a non-starter for the Mets, and if we are being honest the anything less than 9-1 eliminates the Mets.

    Exactly..and sadly this will feed the Wilponzi’s narrative of “Meaningful games” and continue the reign of mediocre/sub par teams to which the fans have been subjected for decades..

    Its over daddy. Wheeler was pretty damn good and really got screwed in the first inning by Frazier and the umpire but he did a nice job not giving up much and also got out of a jam in the fifth nicely too. I thought he’d be lucky to give the Mets five innings with his pitch count elevated early but he gave them seven excellent innings . Zack hasn’t been as good as he was in the second half last year but he has been very solid coming back from the shoulder injury.

    The top of the lineup was brutal with McNeil, Cano, Alonso and Ramos looking practically bad and the top of the lineup squandering bases loaded situations numerous times.

    The party is pretty much and everyone but Rich Couthino a ready to thrown in the towel on hi

      They couldn’t afford to lose this one.

      That’s a really bad loss.
