Mets rotation woes are overblown. Glavine will win 18 games with an ERA of 3.30, El Duque will be around 16 wins with an ERA of 3.90. Maine and Oliver Perez will establish themselves as legit starters and Pelfrey will chip in some solid outings as well.

Wagner will be the Mets Achilles heel, and by the end of the season Aaron Heilman will be the closer.

Jose Reyes will post a line of .300/.400/.500, and win the MVP award.

Mets win the division, fall to the Tigers in the WS.

And the Yankees? Who the hell cares, they're old news .

Are you kidding? Wagner is still a premier closer in the league, and to put a sensitive guy like Heilman in the closers spot will KILL this team.

I never understood the hate for Wags. He blows 4 games last year and he is treated like A-Rod by fans. Who else could you possibly want? Other than Rivera, obviously.

I dont understand it either. The guy is still worth the Money, and Heilman as the Closer is even Scarier.

It's no hate for Wags- there's no one, other than Rivera (or maybe Nathan) that I'd rather have. However, he did look uncomfortable out there at times last season, especially down the stretch and in the postseason, and had a disastrous spring (I know, he's a vet and it's just ST). And I'm offering predictions for the season, and you cannot predict that everything will break right for us. I have faith in Wags, though he makes me damn nervous at times.

Also, why is Heilman "sensitive?" Because he's a damn clutch reliever, who is poised under pressure? I'm guessing you're referring to his displeasure at being overlooked for the rotation, which doesn't make him any more sensitive than any other player out there.

Derek Jeter = MVP.

A-Rod carried his momentum from Spring Training into today, and performed well aside from an obscure drop in foul territory in the 1st when he and Posada went after the same flyball. It looked like Posada's, but what can you do.

Pavano pitched well, just ran into a rocky situation, and when you take that much time off, it's kind of tough to get out of those. He'll be better.

As long as he can pitch like he did in the 1st through the 4th, he'll be fine.

He's the X-Factor to the Yanks' season.

ANSKY!@$@#

Oh yeah, I forgot about that.

I wanted to see Rasner so they could rest Mo, but Mo put on one hell of a show, and there's an off day tomorrow, so all is good in the hood known as the Bronx.

this is the beauty of the sport. It lives with you all summer, day in and day out. It becomes part of the rythem of your daily life. I rarely watch games anymore (maybe once a week) but it's always on the radio as I go about my day. It's the slow methodical nature of baseball (both the schedule and the game itself) that allows it to seep under your skin, and it's not summer without it.

You got me there.

I've been to two of them, and unfortunately, they were both losses... (94 Finals, Games 1 and 5.)

But yeah, still...

Very well said. I admit that it can be a bit tedious to sit down and watch an entire game night in, night out but just being able to check in on those games and just getting into the groove, following the box scores and fantasy teams and the strategy..it's great..and then having a cold beer at the stadium and all is right with the world.

I'll be at wednesday's game so I get to see Andy's return..unfortunately rain is in the forecast and I'm in the bleachers..not a great mix lol

Hey, I'm not an old fart! Haha.

I was 8 at the time, my uncle took me and a friend.

We went to a lot of playoff games that year, being that we had some good connections.

And the Yankees? Who the hell cares, they're old news .

If El Douque wins 16 games I will be absolutely shocked. Also, there is no way that Wagner gives way to Heilman, Heilman is either going to be nickle and dimed in NY and used as a setup man until he is either traded in July, or leaves as a free agent.
Also, I doubt the Tigers get back to the WS, I don't even think they'll make the playoffs...the AL Central has 4 very very good teams with Minnesota being perenially good, and Cleveland looking like contenders.
I do agree that Maine and Perez are really underrated though, and yeah, who the hell does care about the Yankees

by the way, it seems to me that we should split this thread into two (one mets, one yankees.) Flame wars seem inevitable if we don't. Hell, we had seperate threads last year and a few still sprung up.

20-2! HA!HA!HA! I'm feeling like this is the '86 team's reponse to the disappointment of losing out to the Cards in 1985. Now, time to crush the hopes of Atlanta and the "team to beat in the NL East".
