New York Mets Gates went out with a ton of talent on his roster this year and started winning a ton of ballgames.
Since the start of the season, the Mets have finished first in the National League East Division.
Right now, they are seven games ahead of the defending World Series champion Atlanta Braves.
There are 50 games left in the season for New York.
Mike Puma of the New York Post tweeted an interesting fact, that just a 27-23 finish would give him 100 wins over the season, a milestone he hasn’t achieved back in 1988.
The Mets have 50 matches left. A 27–23 finish earned them 100 wins.

a chance for history
This will be huge for the Mets and their fans.
The Mets haven’t really been this impressive in the regular season since 2006.
That year, he made it to the NLCS and took the St. Louis Cardinals to seven games before being knocked out.
They finished that year 97–65, tied for the best record in all of baseball.
But at this rate, the Mets will have to go from .500 points in the last 50 games to four games to achieve something they haven’t achieved in three decades.
The Mets currently hold the best record of any team in New York.
They are currently sitting at 73-39, second in the National League.
It’s been a fun season in Queens, and it could be even more fun if the Mets are able to reach 100 wins.
This season, they are truly World Series contenders and could well score runs in October.
We’ll see if they can reach 100 wins, or potentially even more.
