A pretty poor showing by the NL Central teams in the NL playoffs.
But they got in, leading to the ultimate question: Which is better - a quick first-round exit from the playoffs or not making the playoffs at all?
I still think it's better to make the playoffs - at least you get to put up a banner.
But still - the Mets have to be kicking themselves, right? They have to know that if they had just gotten in, it would have been them knocking off the Cubs in the first round instead of the Dodgers.
At least, I hope they're thinking that.
Maybe they're too busy setting themselves up for more disappointment next year by re-upping two of the people responsible for not preventing a second-consecutive slide out of the playoffs.
