Here we go Mets fans!

It’s been quite a year of ups and downs for the Mets, but we are still alive and well and that’s all that matters.

The Mets enter the final three games in second place and only one game behind the Philadelphia Phillies. They are in a flat-footed tie with the Brewers for the Wild Card spot.

Wow, I can’t believe it comes to this…

Here are the probable pitchers for the next three days.

Marlins at Mets

Friday: Florida (Volstad, 5-4, 3.10) @ New York (Pelfrey, 13-10, 3.70)
Saturday: Florida (Nolasco, 15-7, 3.55) @ New York (Niese, 1-1, 7.07)
Sunday: Florida (Olsen, 8-11, 4.23) @ New York (Santana, 15-7, 2.64)
