We all know the Mets will finish 4th.
Now as for the Yankees...A-Rod will be out all season.Youkilis will make multiple trips to the DL.Jeter is fat and out of shape and will have a terrible year. They have no catcher.Tex and Granderson will hit for power but will hit .250 or below.Ichiro is pretty worthless.Pettitte and Kiroda are old.Hughes and Nova are bad pitchers.Only Cano will perform...and he will outperform Wright for the record.
Yes, the Mets are likely a 4th place team.
Yankees are in the 3-4 range, and I would be surprised if they made the playoffs. This is the beginning of the end of their current squad.
it will largely rest on what lee and halladay do...but i dont have a lot of faith in those guys
ive never been a big believer in lee, who is as streaky as they come....halladay was the best pitcher in baseball for a while...but as we saw w/ johan, that doesnt mean much once the wheels start coming off...
<<We all know the Mets will finish 4th.
We don't KNOW what place they will finish in, we can predict what place they finish.They probably will finish 4th but could finish 3rd or 5th, we don't know.
There are no absolutes in sports.
The marlins will be better than everyone thinks.
For the record I think the Yanks will be in a 3 team dogfight between Tampa, Toronto and Yankees and be separated by no more than 4 games.
How is Ichiro worthless? He hit .322 in the nearly 70 games with the Yankees last season; and he hasn't missed a game since 2009.
"actually i think this is the year that the phillies completely fall apart and finish in 4th ... its coming....that rotation and core is old, howard is bad, utley can barely walk, there is not one player on that team that scares me...not one...(thats right cole...you gotta actually be able to beat us before you scare me)"
I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets this. The Mets finishing 3rd is not an unrealistic expectation. I see the Nats and Braves way up top together and the third place team a ways back from them, with 4th and 5th right behind them.
"I hope you are right about the Phils. I don't know if they are quite ready to fold yet."
Unlike the Yankees, I think they're actually aging as should be expected.

I agree, at 36, and coming off his worst year since he was 23, it's not looking so good.
"The marlins will be better than everyone thinks."
Really? They have one player. They make us seem like a group of Allstars.
