And the Phils still lead the division.
To be fair, I would be worried as a Phillies fan. To go this long without any offensive output (much less decent scoring) would be very troubling. What else are the Phils built to do? They outscore people and have pitching that can keep the game in reach. This lack of production at the plate is crazy and troubling for any near-term games.
For the Mets, I think it's too soon to be overly excited - they've been streaky all year. However, to thoroughly beat the Yanks and the Phils like this is just plain awesome. Whether or not the Phillies currently hold the lead in the NL East doesn't matter now. With a top two (Pelfry, Santana) pitching like this and Reyes and Bay re-awakening, I like the Mets chances for the next few weeks. Maybe that will give enough time for Wright to heat up. Then the Mets would be rolling. Let's just see how it goes...
