First off, I should let you know that I am a die-hard New York Mets fan. I love them. I predict the Mets to be in the playoffs this year. I can’t tell you for sure how, whether it be by the wildcard or the Division champion. If you take a look at the Mets’ lineup, you go: Pagan, Castillo, Reyes, Bay, Wright, Davis, Francoeur, Barajas, Pitcher. Once we get back good ol’ Carlos Beltran, it will only get better. Personally, I think that the Mets should get rid of Carlos. He is not the same player as he once was. How many surgeries has he had? Carlos Beltran needs to go.
I have not yet given up hope on Oliver Perez however. If he can get his head on straight and find the strike zone more often I think he can be the guy we wanted from the Pirates back in ’06. The Mets’ Rotation: Santana, Perez, Maine(DL), Pelfrey, Niese. If Ollie and Maine can get it back on track, and the Mets give Santana some RUN SUPPORT That rotation is pretty good.
