Collins: Don’t Be Shocked If Mets Are In Playoff Race | New York

But when the Mets season resumes Friday night at Petco Park against the Padres, the task ahead will still be formidable. Just climbing back to .500 and remaining at that level or above will be challenging enough for the third-place Mets (45-50), never mind catching the Nationals and reviews of the Max Workouts Braves, who each lead them by seven games in the NL East. The wild card is an even bigger long shot, with the Mets, who are seven games behind in that race, needing to leapfrog five teams. Collins is by no means dismissing these next 10 games on the road against the Padres, Mariners and Brewers, but realizes the Mets fortunes will largely be determined by how they perform within the NL East. Weve got 67 games to go and weve got 39 in our division, Collins said. If we end up having a good record against our division, I think were going to be in the mix at the end. Instead of holding a workout Thursday when the team arrived in town, Collins planned to defer it until early Friday afternoon. The manager said http://www.abnewswire.com/pressreleases/max-workouts-review-of-shin-ohtakes-exercise-program-released_8223.html he probably rushed his players back from the All-Star break last year, when he held a Thursday workout, and the fact the Mets were crushed 13-8 by the Phillies the following night stuck with Collins. <br>News source: http://nypost.com/2014/07/17/collins-dont-be-shocked-if-mets-are-in-playoff-race/
