First place!

After what could be termed an embarrassing loss in the first game of the Phillies series, the Mets did exactly what they had to do: they won the next two games in convincing style, taking the series 2-1 and plunking themselves in sole possession of first place for the first time since April 19th. They did it with solid starting pitching (Maine and Perez), clutch hitting (Wright and Delgado) and their one dependable bullpen ace, Billy Wagner.

I don't think the Mets are currently one of the better teams in baseball - they are going to have to play a lot better for the remainder of the season to change my mind about that - but they do have me reasonably convinced that they can be the best of the mediocre selection available in the National League East.
