It appears that the last game of the Mets series has been postponed with the Braves leading 2-1 after 3 1/2. The Expos won and the Marlins lost, so the Braves head to Boston with a six and a half game lead over the Expos, eight over the Marlins, and eight and a half over the Mets. The Expos traded three top prospects and roster ballast (Lee Stevens) to the Indians for ace starter Bartolo Colon; their already impressive rotation is now every bit the equal of the Braves’, on paper, anyway. Colon’s health is something of a concern still, and one pitcher isn’t worth six and a half games in the standings.
