As the Mets prepare to wrap up a two-game series with the Marlins on Wednesday night at Citi Field, the National League East race is as tight as ever. Buck Showalter’s club is tied atop the division with the Atlanta Braves prior to a huge head-to-head matchup this weekend.
Who will be the division winner and earn a first-round bye is still to be determined. However, the Mets have already clinched their first postseason berth since 2016. Showalter went on “The Show” podcast with Joel Sherman and Jon Heyman of the New York Post to talk about that and a bunch of other things in a wide-ranging interview.
