Pedro's stints on the DL have always been brief over the last few years, so even if that were to happen, I wouldn't worry as a Met fan, he hasn't spent half the season on the DL coughSchillingcough or anything like that.
You guys landed a true ace, and like Chizip said, the first 2 years of that contract are gonna be a bargain, beyond that could be iffy, but methinks when all is said and done you'll feel you got your $54Mil worth.

I don't hate Cubs fans at all. I went to Wrigley for the first time last year, with my Dad, as part of a 5-city baseball trip, and we loved it there. Some of the people needed to sober the fuck up, though, but that's no shock.

Pedro has been really impressive this year, I wonder why that shocks some people, and I don't mean people on this thread. He's never had a bad year, he might not have been dominant last year, but he still won 16 games while pitching many pressure-packed games vs. other team's aces, and finished with a 3.90 era. Not a Pedro-like ERA, sure, but most pitchers would take that. Now, he's got no DH to face, so that helps, but DH or not, the man can still pitch. Clemens has had the best career of any pitcher I've ever seen, but, I've never seen a better pitcher than Pedro, if you can appreciate the difference.

Pedro was a great acquisition for the Mets, on and off the field. You'll more than get your $'s worth.

The Yankees. Sigh. 'Twas fun while it lasted. Ben Sheets can pitch.

bringing in pedro was a pure marketing move, with the mets new television station... the Metwork, if you will... debuting next season. thus why they had no problem overpaying for pedro and/or beltran.

and it's worked wonders thus far. he's been amazing... switching to the NL has certainly revived his career, and it's not exactly like he stunk last year to begin with.

Nationals have some talent........they could eventually end up in first or at the very least, become a spoiler down the stretch.

Nationals have been winning by only a small handful runs each game (ala Chicago White Sox - outside of last night). they need to produce more runs.

I have been amazed by the Phillies. I have seen them play four games this year already (in three different ballparks), and they SUCKED up each of those games (except when they beat the Cubs ).

I am excited about the National League East (that sounds weird).

It's been, oh, 87 years now, but MLB finally figured out that a series between the Cubs and Red Sox was probably a good idea...

Yeah, not so good if you live in Lakeview and want to go anywhere this weekend...
And enough with the "Curse" garbage! Excuses, excuses.
PS--> I just heard on the radio that scalpers are selling tickets at face value outside the park. Apparently they have too many. Get over there people if you're interested.
Can't there be a rain out so noone wins.

Go White Sox.
