Yesterday was where it all starts. The Mets have begun the stretch that will bury them. From yesterday to the July 31st trade deadline, the Mets play only 10 games at home - against the Yankees, Phillies, Cardinals and one makeup game against the Marlins.
They will soon be entering the Dead Zone.
Speaking of the Dead Zone, we now have eight members of the club.
Kansas City Royals
Los Angeles Dodgers
San Diego Padres
