If you’re 10 games out of all playoff spots, you’ve made the list. You can be a zombie and rise from the dead and get off the list. But at the moment, there are 4 of them that are toast.
The Mets have made the list.
Currently there are 3 dead National League teams and 1 dead American League team:
Astros – 13.5 games out of the wildcard.
Mets – 10 out of division and wildcard
Cubs – 10.5 out of the wildcard
Marlins – 16 out of division and wildcard
The Mets can get back on life support with a win or two… but as of now, they’re on the dead list.
