A baseball post

In the off-season, the Mets' new general manager, Omar Minaya, said his goal was that the Mets would play meaningful games in September. They played one or two. On August 30th, the Mets were still in contention for the Wild Card, and were perhaps even the favorite, given their recent performance. Since then, they've lost 7 of 8, and are about to have lost 8 of 9. They're basically out of contention at this point; Houston, Philadelphia, Florida, and Washington are all ahead of them, by at least a couple of games. Here's how their current game is going, and how it could get worse for the Mets.
