The 2007 ad campaign for the Mets was "Your Season Has Come" and then 2 weeks ago on SNY it changed to "Your Postseason Has Come"

They might want to pull that ad right now. The Mets were desperate last night and as the NY Post explains looked to 35th St for help

MIGHT BE TIME TO STOP BELIEVIN' (http://www.nypost.com/seven/09292007/sports/mets/might_be_time_to_stop_believin.htm)

In the ninth inning, with hope leaking from every fissure of their doomed ballpark and flooding out of every crevice of their doomed season, there tumbled from the speakers a familiar melody that was designed to inject one last 10cc boost to a flagging baseball team.

"Just a small town girl," came the recognizable lyric, "livin' in a lonely world . . . "

Yes, at the 11th hour, the Mets were turning to Journey, to "Don't Stop Believin'," to the song that helped the White Sox end an 88-year drought two years ago and also, not long ago, provided the soundtrack for the very last scene of "The Sopranos."

Before everything faded to black.


The Mets outlook is bleak now. They almost have to win both of their games and pray that Philly loses at least one. The Wild Card is even bleaker as they would need to win 2 and San Diego lose 2 just for a wild card tie.

The NY tabloids are simply vicious this Saturday morning

Cole Hamels helped propel the Phils to a solo first place spot for the first time this year with just two games left.

They played it at the Rockies game last night as well. My first thought was that they were lookin for a little inspiration from the song/Sox. I wish it would have worked. :(

Rockies chances are pretty slim now

They need to win 2 and Padres need to lose 2

Rockies can win 2 but I can't see the Brewers playing well now after their dream died.

Mets by winning 2 and Padres losing 2 would also tie for the wild card but right now I can not see the Mets winning even one.

Yeah - if their fate was solely in their own hands, I would have total confidence. But having to rely on another team's losses - not so much.

The Mets don't really have a big fan operated message board like WSI ( there are a lot of small ones ) but some of the comments by these people make me concerned for their health later today

Mets jump to a 5-0 lead.

Still no matter what they do they will need help.

7-0 Mets, should win this game. Phillies on Fox at 4.

If the Mets have anything going for them it is the fact the team they are fighting with for the division sometimes has trouble closing the deal themselves

Apparently the Mets were literally fighting for the division in today's game. A brawl erupted.
