Yeah...that was WAY before the season started, and I thought they just might be hot. Glad to see my prediction didn't pan out (as well as the Astros predicition).

Piazza has been healthy and the Mutts still need to ratchet it up a couple of notches and play .384 ball over the last 26 to get to 70 wins. (They need to play .500 to avoid 90 losses...not looking so good Mookie)

piazza hasn't been healthy, and the muts WERE a .500 team all season, and the second they fell just a little bit out of the race they completely colapsed... which is why art howe needs to be hung by his toes.

Piazza's played in 107 games to date and is 4th on the team in AB, so compared to what happened last year, he's been healthy this year.
Its a 162 game season, teams seek their true level over the course of the season (notice the Rangers are suddenly not a serious playoff contender), the Mets are seeking the 70 win level.
Might as well break out your pin stripes for the playoffs (you know you have them hiding in the back of the closet for just these type of seasons, which are becoming commonplace in Metland).

ahh here we go again... alas, let me explain...

yes it is true, me, the avid met fan, roots for the yankees when they play the red sox. but you see, there's a method to my madness.

the yankees and yankee fans have but one goal... to win the world series. the red sox and red sox fans have the same goal, but goal 1B is to beat the yankees. by rooting for the yankees to beat the red sox, then in turn rooting against the yankees in the world series, i get the best of both worlds.

and i didn't say piazza didn't play... i said he wasn't healthy. so either he was just playing hurt for a large part of the season, or he's just done as a premier player, which is likely as well.

By who? Not the Angies, they ain't even going.
Lets see...last 8 games againsy the so called dominant AL West...7 wins, 1 loss. 3-0 vs the "dominant" Angels. 2-1 vs the Rangers (everybody slips once in a while) 2-0 thus far against the Al west leading Athletics, with Pedro hurling tonite.
