The New York Mets are still in the race despite a deeply frustrating season.
The Mets are within five games of the NL Wild-Card.
“We had no idea we’d break down like this,’’ Terry Collins said, “None. It’s hard to believe.’’

“They may fire me at the end of the year,’’ Collins told USA TODAY Sports, “but they have supported my ass the entire time I’ve been here. That’s why I’ve got no (complaints). None.
“Whatever happens at the end of the year, I’ll walk out of here with a smile on my face, and get ready for spring training, or get ready to play golf, either one.’’
