As far as I'm concern the New York Mets seem to be showing signs
of a team that is blending together slowly but surely. There are
still obstacles to overcome. One is, what are they going to do
with Mr Diaz who is playing well. With Cameron due back soon where
are the Mets going to put Diaz?
Both starting and relief pitching have many flaws. Benson is still
injured and Peterson seems to be having trouble controlling Zambranos
arm. Heilman pitches well only at Shea. Is it the stadium or the
weather that affects Heilman? Jae Seo had a good start although
he suffered a lost last night. But keep in mind the Mets left
over 10 men on base and could only score one run last night. Hopefully
we'll see more of him, Now Mr Glavine seems to be in possession
of his control most of the time but always has problems with the
team he grew up with in the majors.
The Atlanta Braves! Glavine is not the only one who has problems
with the Braves. The Mets themselves have to constantly suffer
the agony of defeat that has lasted over a decade. Except for
in the year 2000, which the Mets were able to avoid playing the
Braves for the division.
Lets say that the Mets can overcome the Braves and make the playoffs
even though its just the beginning of the season. Do you really
think that one man such as Omar Minaya can change the face of
a team in one year entirely to the point of reaching the playoffs?
Although Mr. Randolph has gotten of to a decent start,
do you think that a coach who's never managed in the big leagues
or minors can actually take a team to the playoffs and beyond
to the World Series?
Well the reason why I root for the Mets is because when all odds
are against them, they seem to perform miracles!
Go Mr. Randolph !
Go Mr. Minaya !
Lets Go Mets !
Till Next Month
