While Nationals fans crow about Wednesday’s stirring comeback, Mets fans are at DEFCON 1 today. If you look closely on the Google Earth maps, you will notice many people wearing baby blue and orange perched on window ledges in Queens, ready to plunge to their deaths rather than witness their beloved Mets complete the second worst regular season collapse in baseball history. The Metropolitans have lost nine of 13 and lead the Phillies by just one game in the NL East. As pointed out by the NYT, the Mets are in danger of becoming the first team to blow a seven-game lead in its division with 17 games to play. Their savior, Pedro Martinez, takes the mound tonight in Flushing against the Cardinals, and then the Marlins come to town for three games.
