Now that we're in the 2nd half of the season and time is getting shorter... the Dead List candidates qualify from being 10 games out to 8. 8 games means you're more than 1 full week of games out.
So where do the Mets stand?
They're 4.5 out of the Wildcard and 7 out in the division. They're 3.5 games from oblivion. That's half a week potentially.
So who is on the Dead List?
The official list is 8. The Brewers and Marlins are on the brink.
