    What are you worried about? We’ve never lost a lead this big going into September

    This thread is not a bad omen. If the Mets overtake us then our magic number becomes negative. This thread is merely informational only and no emotional takes here

    Wow, I'm a math guy and I did not realize the magic number was this low. For a few weeks I have just been thinking that if we make it to 95 wins we have it. Kind of like the first to score 100 in the NBA always wins.

    We're in pretty good shape. Up by 7 games, 6 in the loss column. Even with an unlikely sweep we would still be up by 3 games. Their upcoming 4 series are vs Atlanta twice and on the road vs Cardinals and Twins.
