while i don't like the whole wagner thing... i am enjoying this team quite a bit thus far.

duaner sanchez is quite good... the jae seo trade has worked out... the kris benson for jorge julio trade on the other hand, not so much. i don't think julio will be pitching much anymore though... the combo of sanchez, chad bradford with his 82 mile per hour submarine fastball followed with his 60 mile per hour changeup, heilman and obviously wagner... all setting up quite nicely. xavier nady looks like he may be ready to break out in the way san diego hoped he would 2 years ago... reyes is the fastest man in baseball, delgado is a beast, i have a man crush on david wright, loduca's got some balls, julio franco has befriended carlos beltran as a father figure... which he actually might be old enough to be his father... and bannister looks like he could be a solid #5 starter.

i'm getting quite excited...

i went to the game last night... got some tickets off of stub hub, 3 rows from the field in between third base and the left field wall... and got 'em for under face value too. certainly won't be the last time i'm doing that... and after the absolute ball i had with the rest of the fans out there ripping on alfonso soriano, i'm headed straight to stub hub to see if i can snag the same tickets for when bonds comes to town

The Mets game was on ESPN last night, and I have to say, Delgado looks pretty good in a Mets uniform.

delgado is a beast. as long as he stays healthy, and seeing as he's been relatively healthy his entire career, knock on wood, he's going to have a monster year. he hits the ball so hard and so far it doesn't really matter that he's playing at a "pitcher's park." skydome and whatever the florida stadium is called these days certainly aren't hitter friendly, and he did quite well there.

and mr. wright is simply turning into an RBI machine... if a guy's on base he tends to pick him up more often than not, which is why i still think beltran should move to the 2 slot and wright should bat third... then you can bat loduca either 7th or 8th... i'd like to bat him 8th to have a good contact hitter before the pitcher bats, but putting anderson 7th leaves zero protection for floyd. either way, wright should deffinetly be batting third and beltran should go to the two hole, where he can use his speed more effectively.

I agree.

And I couldnt agree more on Julio. I know its only the first week of the season but he def. looks like the weak link.

Bannister looks like he has tons of potential and the lineup looks like everyone fits somewhere. There is no absurdity (like marlon anderson hitting fourth, or M. Johnson hitting third, lol)

Ive been out of town and just saw the new model of the new stadium, love the outfield setup, wow.

Can I already call into work for mets opening day 2009?????

Whos with me????

If this Red Sox pitching staff stays healthy and performs like it did this first week (minus Wakefield - you never know what you're gonna get with him), they just might be able to win as many games as the last few years without having to score a gazillion runs each time...

it looks like the implosion of the white sox pitching staff that everyone outside of the southside of chicago was waiting for all last year may finally be occuring...

agreed... if schilling and becket stay healthy, the red sox are gonna win the AL East. perhaps we'll get an 86 rematch, 20 years on? maybe buckner can throw out the first pitch

From the LA Times:

Must-watch TV: Wednesday night's Mets at Nationals, Pedro Martinez pitching, Jose Guillen batting third. Guillen has been hit by Martinez pitches five times in his career, twice Thursday night at Shea Stadium. Guillen, to the Washington Post: "You know what? If I get hit again, it's going to get real ugly if he's pitching. Sooner or later he's going to get hurt. I can guarantee you that."
