An article by posted on July 29, 2007

It is looking like there will be no dominanting lead in the NL East in 2007 for the Mets. I thought the Phillies might fall out of it when Chase Utley broke his hand, but then they added Tadahito Iguchi to fill in until he returns. We have a 4 game lead on both the Braves […]
