Its frightening to see what the Mets have to compete with in the Nats and Braves over the next 5 to 6 years.
And the Phillies aren't going to stand still either. Maybe before sleaze Selig leaves office the Wilpons can schmooze him into moving them into the NL Central!!!
The more you post the more sure i become that you know nothing about baseball. Look back at history and see what percentage of Top Ten prospects fair during the remainder of their careers. And I an not talking about a teams top ten but those considered top ten by all of baseball. If it comes to 90% they should all be fired and they haven't.
Almost every star in baseball today at one time was a Top Ten prospect. They are not found in cabbage patches like your mother told you.
"yeah I can't see it either (rolls eyes) They added the Uptons, have a full year as Medlen as the starter who I will predict will be a top five starter in the NL, and have a full year of simmons at short"
And they lost Chipper, Bourn, Prado and Tommy Hanson.
5th best? Are you counting the Upton's before Freeman? I don't think they will be anything more then average outfielders in the National league east. And the braves lost their leader in Chipper. Hard to replace with a bunch of kids that are more individualistic than team oriented players.
McCann is the closest they now have to a leader and they believe that he will be gone after this year.
>>We can look forward to 90 loss 4th and 5th place finishes for the next decade...or more<<
We went from 100 loss team to a 95 loss team and now a 90 loss team, things are looking up I tell ya.
