Are they actually going to make this up? It’s highly unlikely that the Giants are going to lose the division, and the Mets, of course, have been irrelevant since May. As far as I can tell, the only reason to make it up would be if the Giants finished a half game ahead or behind the Braves for the best record. Would that be enough to make the Giants fly across the country for a single game against a sub-.500 team?
The two teams do have one off-day in common, Monday, Aug. 25. I can’t imagine that they’d play that day. The Giants host Florida then are at Colorado, and the Mets are at L.A. then at the Braves.
