We are now at the All-Star break and it's time to take a look at how the Mets can make the playoffs.
Right now, they are four games behind the Atlanta Braves for first place in the NL East, but they're only one game behind in the NL Wild Card race.
It's probably the easier route to the playoffs for the Mets, especially seeing how the Braves are capable of playing over the weekend, and how deep their starting rotation is.
Looking at the Wild Card race, there are five teams other than the Mets who will be competing for the spot.
Which teams are a huge threat heading into August, and which are going to fade? Where do the Mets themselves stand in the race? Find out here in a six-team breakdown.
