the first step is admitting you're a runner.

running is a mental sport, and we're all insane.

This is the first time in the Citi Field era that I'd say the Mets have a shot at the playoffs. Still, too much has to break their way.

84-78.

I think you are forgetting that the Mets played at Citi Field in 2009.

No. But that team was so dreadful by the 4th of July, that I probably forgot what they were like going into the season.

I'll happily lick the egg off my face. (Provided they don't go 19-28 down the stretch)

There's no egg. I expected this to be a disappointing season with good pitching and very little else. After the events of the last 2+ weeks, I feel like I'm playing with house money, and am just enjoying the ride.

My anywhere-imagining notwithstanding, my prediction has been surpassed by reality.

Good.

Congratulations Ceetar nailing the 90-72 record and the first-place finish. The prediction will be perfect if he's chilling on Lower Broadway a few weeks hence.

metsmarathon also called 90-72, but said it would be good for a second-place finish (and an NLDS loss).

I'd put in the sick day for 10/29 now if I were you. See you in downtown Manhattan.



Hmm, I must have done the math wrong. It feels unlikely the Mets parade will be after only 2 WS games.

The first annual "We've Got This in the Bag" Parade is a great idea.

I somehow didn't get in this poll (prolly because I HAT all of you!). In any case, my best case scenario was 81-81. 2016 was going to be the "Harvey and Parnell are all better now" year. Little did I know Sandy had the keys to a spare stack of cash. But I NEVER doubted Terry. Good golly I love Terry. Lubba wubba.

My certainty about the 82-80 record was based on 3 things: 1) Good pitching. 2) Inept hitting. 3) An unwillingness by the Wilpons/Sandy to go for it at the trade deadline.

1) was true all year
2) was true until about July 25th
3) totally surprised me when they did.

Had this team remained on the same trajectory as they had been for the first 3 3/4 months of the season, they'd have limped along to the end as a barely .500 team with occasional flashes of brilliance. That they actually made moves to change that trajectory (and that the moves actually worked) is the real story of this season.

Gratz Ceetar! Predictions on the post season please...

I think Edgy's optimism deserves something.
This is more than likely the closest I've ever come to winning this thing.
