At least your owner saved some money.(for himself, I doubt he dropped ticket prices after the trade).
Lidle sucks. Moyer is just as good.

Come on, these are the same people who booed Mariano Rivera at the beginning of the 2005 season after he blew another couple saves against the Red Sox.

Thome wasn't exactly gone for long. He's already back.

Dye will get votes, but I don't see him winning it.

The Mets have been dismantling the NL pitchers all season long. I don't see why that would change against the Cards or Padres in the post season.

Or the Reds?
Or the Tralfazzes?

if the mets lose in the NL it will a choke job. the NL is awful. anything short of a trip to the world series would make this a disapointing season.

i know, when ya've been as bad as the mets have been you shouldn't be that greedy. but as a realist, they're significantly better than the other national league playoff teams. they aren't significantly better than the american league playoff teams, if better at all. but they are better than the NL. by a lot.

i'm not saying it would be impossible for the mets to lose before the world series. as we've always seen, anything's possible. but a loss in the NLDS or NLCS would make this season a failure. period.

I agree Headache.

Just going by stats and if Chicago White Sox make the playoffs and if the season ended today, my vote for AL MVP is Jermaine Dye.

Well if handicapping, The Mets are clearly the favorites to win the NL.
But Pedro and Glavine are question marks. If either or both are unable to pitch in Rocktober or ineffectice due to injury, that brings the Mets back to the pack.

They've been doing just fine without Pedro/Glavine

I think they've won 10 of 12 or something.

go phillies

The Phillies have been playing well lately, with Utley and Delucci, and the bullpen not showing up.

They have a fighting chance on every given day because they're so inconsistent. If they make it ... well, just watch out.

Lacking consistency from our starters. If our starters go deep in a game we have a chance.

And when we get Flash back it will be a little better too.

It's a treatable form of cancer, however. Let's just be clear. It's the same thing that Andres Gallaraga had. He should be able to make a complete recovery and pitch again.
