Go, Mets, Go!
Ron Santo would punch me in the face if he read this, but I am strongly advocating for the Mets to pull it together and reach the post season over the Phillies. Mostly, I think this would be a good thing for one simple, essential reason - the following key Met players are on the DL:
Billy Wagner - 2.30 ERA, 27 saves
Orlando Hernandez - 24 starts, 9-5, 3.72 ERA
John Maine - 25 starts, 10-8, 4.18 ERA
Moises Alou - .347 AVG in what little playtime he had this season
Fernando Tatis - .297 AVG, 11 HR, 47 RBI
At the rate they're dropping, it'll be a miracle if they make it. And if they make it ... soft prey.
