By holding onto a 6-4 victory over the Miami Marlins, my beloved New York Mets took undisputed possession of first place in the National League Eastern Division. I've learned over the last few years to enjoy these moments while they last. --Bob

Well, that didn't last very long. I hope this isn't the only time all season I get to use this thread. --Bob

Being a lifelong Mets fan has taught me that you've really gotta enjoy these times while they're happening because it can be a long, long time before they can happen again. The Mets' victory over Washington, combined with Minnesota's win today, have the Mets back in undisputed possession of first place. May this stay endure longer than the last one. --Bob

And the roller coaster takes another dip. Back on the outside, looking up at first place. —Bob

With today's win, the Mets emerge from a three-way tie to reclaim undisputed possession of first place in the National League East. Wheeeeeeee! --Bob

But the Mets will begin their first series of the season against Bryce Harper and company looking up at first place. --Bob

It took some bonus baseball to settle tonight's tilt, but the Mets have again reclaimed undisputed possession of first place in the National League East. At least until tomorrow. --Bob

And just like that, after a truly ugly outing, the Mets have again surrendered their brief grip on first place. —Bob

I know it's the wrong thread, but have the Red Sox been toastified, yet? If not, it should be any day now.
