Mets brave Atlanta
Yeah, they've got a big foot on their throats. Sure, the Mets seem to have started the countdown to ending the Braves' run.
But two notes of caution. Chicago White Sox -- led the AL Central last season by a dozen in mid-July, and next thing you knew, they felt the Indians' breath on their neck. Larry Jones -- as long as he's Chipper, the Mets are uneasy.
The Mets have lost 10 games to NL East clubs; already the Braves have accounted for nearly half of them.
Book it: July 28-30 and Sept. 26-28, Atlanta; Sept. 4-6, New York.
