The Mets

The truth is, neither the Phillies nor the Braves are that good and the Mets, rightfully, should win the division. The meltown last week was troubling and could have led to a bigger problem but the mediocre Braves came to the rescue.

The Mets have a few holes, particularly middle relief, and the manager has a few holes in his head, but otherwise they are a decent team. Despite his recent surge, Shawn Green is still lead-footed and dreadful,and Paul LoDuca is still a dreadful hitter (despite last night's production). (Can you believe they batted him second at the beginning of the year because he "can handle the bat", whatever that means?).

Jose Reyes needs his head examined, Carlos Delgado is an enigma, Alou is a solid hitter (but another brutal outfielder) and Beltran and Wright are wonderful.

I see the Mets winning one round of the playoffs.
