At this point, winning the division would be huge. Home field advantage, of course, and we'll end up playing the West/Central team with less momentum.

Exactly, if we win the division I think that we win the World Series.

I think Suzyn understands now.

Speaking of kids who are projected to hit for power...

...Lucas Duda has been NUTS this second half of the season. Really looking forward to watching him next year. Hopefully he can learn how to play defense, though.

Yeah, he has been excellent. If he continues to progress and Ike Davis returns healthy (he should), then that's some good pop in the middle of the lineup. With the rumored changes to Citi happening this winter, the offense should be much better next season.

Back to Duda though, I think his defense will develop to a passable level. When he was drafted, he was exclusively a 1B coming out of USC, and his first year in the system he played only 1B at St. Lucie. The team basically ripped apart his swing after drafting him and rebuilt it from the ground up, in an attempt to help him turn on balls and develop his raw power (he only had 11 HR in 140 college games). As a result, the team felt it best to let him focus on his swing that first year and worry about his defense later. It really wasn't until the second half of last season that the organization moved him full time--or at least on a more regular basis. So really, he's only been playing the OF regularly for about a year and a half. Add to that that RF in Citi is really, really tough, and he has done an admirable job.

Hopefully with some modifications coming to the Citi outfield, he won't have to cover as much ground.

I'm really interested to see what management decides to do with the CF situation, as well as what they want/can do with Bay. I think he needs to go. Just take the hit, it didn't work out, and move onto a younger solution to the problem. Pagan might be on the team, but a player like Captain Kirk might take his job in spring training. LF then becomes open for possibly someone like Murphy, who I think can handle it now. He's a much more mature player, and shouldn't really fall apart by playing the outfield.

If the infield remains the same, (Wright, Reyes, Turner/Tejada, Ike) I think this team has a chance to compete if the rotation is addressed. Santana coming back, Neise maturing, Gee getting a year under his belt, Pelfrey going away, and having Dickey not have such bad luck, they can compete for the wild card.

I don't think they are that far off from being a playoff contender.

They're not. We're going to finish ~.500 missing our ace, with David wright missing 60 games, Jose Reyes missing 40 games, Ike Davis missing 130 games, Danny Murphy missing 50 games, Paulino missing half the year, etc... Haven't had an actual closer for months, traded our cleanup hitter at the deadline...still closing in on .500. We're not going to be close to the level of Philadelphia any time in the next few years, but there's no reason we can't compete with Atlanta for the WC.

ASSUMING WE CAN ****ING STAY HEALTHY! Hahah.
