Updated playoff odds: Mets' new magic number; Yankees all but done

NEW YORK — The Yankees season isn't mathematically over, but for all intents and purposes, their three-game skid to the Blue Jays -- with one more to play in Toronto Monday -- has effectively ended their season.

The Yankees, 79-76, are three games under .500 in September (10-13) and needed to win about 20 of their remaining 30 games to have a shot at the American League Wild Card. This is no longer possible. As of Monday morning the Yankees playoff chances have dwindled to 0.1 percent.

The Mets took three of four games from the Phillies this weekend and sit alone in the National League Wild Card by a full game with six left, three of which are against lowly Philadelphia. The Mets' magic number to reach the postseason is seven and their chances of making the playoffs are 71.8 percent, according to MLB.com.

Mets crush Philly, 17-0

The Mets have three games in Miami this week against the Marlins starting Monday -- a series that figures to be emotional -- and then finish up with three in Philly after an off-day Thursday.

Bartolo Colon (14-7, 3.12) will start Monday, Noah Syndergaard (13-9, 2.63) Tuesday, and Seth Lugo (4-2, 2.61) on Wednesday. 

"It's weird, it's very strange," Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday about the uncertainty of returning to Citi Field for any games. "But our fans gave great support last night. Great support again today and certainly our plan is to come back and play again in front of them. Just got to go grind it out this week."
