Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead!

The Atlanta Braves are dead in the National League East race this year.
The Mets swept them in Atlanta in a series longer than 2 games for the first time in more than 20 years. The Mets are 8-4 against Atlanta this year, including 5-1 at Turner Field.
The Mets have a 15 game lead on Atlanta with 58 games to go, the magic number is 44.
I'm not ready to call the division quite yet, but Philadelphia is now the second place team and they threw up a white flag yesterday.
Here is my big worry about this post: The Braves are only 6 1/2 games behind the Reds for the wild card. If they can get hot, and get some pitching it's possible, not likely, but possible, that the Mets could face them in the NLCS.

But that worry is for October. Right now it is still July and we have slain the beast. The 15 year reign of the Braves is over.

Let's Go Mets!
