Jenrry Mejia worked a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his 11th save of the season last night against the Padres, but that wasn’t what had the right-hander’s name in headlines. Prior to the game, Mejia told SNY.tv that the Mets will make the playoffs. Via the NY Post, the 24-year-oldĀ foresees October action “because we believe in ourselves.”

Going into Saturday night’s game in San Diego, the Mets are 46-50 in third place, seven games behind the first-place Braves. As the Mets certainly know, a seven-game lead isn’t insurmountable, even in September.

Since moving from the rotation into the bullpen in mid-May, Mejia has posted a 2.25 ERA with 11 saves in 13 opportunities over 28 innings of work.

    When did New York legalize pot?

      Was that not a quote from when the Mets were playing in Colorado? It must be!

      NY legalized it in June of this year. It all makes sense now.

    In what year?

    Jenrry doesn’t have the consistent stamina to be a starter, but he’s a high-octane, max effort kind of guy who needs a pressure role. He’s perfect as a closer.

    8 wins in their last 10 games, guess this “because we believe in ourselves” quote is so far takin effect.

    The Binghamton Mets are doing quite well.

    I agree, some current mets will make the playoffs. Bartolo Colon and David Murphy have very good chances.

      The mets are trading for David Murphy? The Indians can keep him

      • clydeserra - Jul 19, 2014 at 11:15 PM

        david? daniel? I never know which one is which

        Yeah, they’re all the same

    Sounds like Mejia will be the next one up for a random drug test

    That’s a tall order

    LOL….I’ll take a .500 season and worry about the playoffs next year. No way do they make it this year.
