The best memes and reactions that poach the Mets on the kismet crown

The Atlanta Braves clinched the NL East Tuesday night with a victory over the Marlins, completing a wild comeback in the division to top the Mets.

The world champion Atlanta Braves were already aware that he would return to the MLB Playoffs to defend his title – but now he will do so as the NL East champion after a gritty 2-1 win over the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night.

Playing began on Monday after the former New York Mets swept into the Major League Soccer over the weekend, and the Braves’ magic number remained at just one digit, meaning they only needed a New York loss or their own win to win the division. They failed to get either on Monday but Tuesday proved to be a different story.

Almost fittingly, it was the rumored close Kenley Jansen who bottomed out at ninth and took all three finals to secure victory and return the division title to Truist Park (and give Atlanta a first-round postseason farewell). And they did so in a truly incredible way given the arduous climb they faced.

The Mets were up to 10.5 games at one point in the division and failed to secure the NL East. Of course, as Braves fans celebrated on social media, there was no shortage of shots being taken in New York either.

Some might argue that the Mets suffocated but, outside of the final series between the contenders, that’s not really the case. It’s all down to the Braves, who played at a winning pace of 114 in the second half of the season to overcome a 10.5-game deficit in the division and take over the NL East once again.

But now the champions have an easier path back to the World Championships as they face the winner of the Padres-Phillies Series that begins in the NLDS on Tuesday, October 11th.

The Mets are now a wild card team.
