"Playoffs? Don't talk about — playoffs?! You kidding me? Playoffs?! I just hope we can win a game!"
One has to wonder what Jim Mora would think about Toronto FC's playoff chances at this point. The Reds' meagre post-season hopes took another big hit on Saturday night in a 3-1 road loss to Inter Miami, the team's third loss in a row and a result that extended their winless run to six matches.
TFC (3-12-6) remains last in the Supporters’ Shield and Eastern Conference standings. With 13 games remaining in the campaign, Toronto is seven spots and 12 points behind D.C. United, who hold down the seventh and final playoff berth in the East. TFC is mathematically alive, but it's difficult to see how they are going to turn this around and qualify for the post-season.
