I gave up on the Mets too soon. 4 game sweep of the Diamondbacks. 2 games behind Cubs and Brewers for WC2 with 16 to go.

Remaining schedule:

Cubs (78-68): Pirates (3), Reds (3), Cardinals (4), @ Pirates (3) and @ Cardinals (3)

Brewers (78-68): @ Cardinals (3), Padres (4), Pirates (3), @ Reds (3) and @ Rockies (3)

Mets (76-70): Dodgers (3), @ Rockies (3), @ Reds (3), Marlins (4) and Braves (3)

Phillies (75-70): Braves, Red Sox (2), @ Braves (3), @ Indians (3), @ Nationals (5!) and Marlins (3)

That 11 game road trip for the Phillies is brutal.

Cubs should be able to take care of business and earn a playoff spot. If they struggle with the Cardinals, then the Mets have a soft last week since the last weekend will likely be meaningless for the Braves.
