I have read back through what I have written about the Mets this year and it clear that this is the team that we have.
They are going to be a roller coaster all year. 10 games they will look like they are destined for the World Series. 10 games they are going to look like the worst team in the league.
The problems are centered entirely around pitching. Right now we have Johan Santana, Mike Pelfrey and we are praying for rain 3 out of every 5 days. David Wright said as much last night.
It makes for some really exciting games, 2 out of 5 games. Johan and Pelf have been as advertised. Pelf has every chance to make the All-Star Game (although I am not sure he is more deserving than Santana).
If we are able to land another big name starting pitcher (did I read that Dan Haren could be available?), we can be a real force in the league. If things stay as is, with our bullpen and rotation loaded with question marks, the year is going to be what it is, a roller coaster. As such, my posts will probably be just as up and down.
