Randy’s Pick

The Phillies have lost 3 straight games, and you shouldn't expect them to put their best foot forward here when you consider they're preparing for a wild card series that starts on Tuesday. Nick Nelson is getting the ball for the first time this season, so good luck with that. The Mets were the most disappointing team in baseball this season, but they should want to finish on a strong note and send fans off with a victory. Give me the Mets if forced to pick.
