With the Phillies loss to the Atlanta tonight the Mets magic number is down to 1. This means that the Mets are almost asured of clinching the division and dethroning the Braves, who have won the division for the last 14 consecutive years, while they visit the Pirates in Pittsburgh this weekend. The only way that won’t happen is if the Mets lose all 3 of their games against the Bucs AND the Phils win all of their games against the Astros in Houston. Unlikely considering they go up against Roger Clemens tomorrow night.
