17-13 on the season. Good start for the team and today, they are looking for the sweep against the Phillies. Mets already have 10 come from behind wins. That is the most so far this season by any team. They are also 12-5 against the NL East.

Excellent start; like several of the kids. Collins has them playing hard every night; wonderful sign is the aggressiveness of Ike Davis defensively. He can win gold gloves at some point. Loved how livid he got with ump on Victorino interference dp the other night.

Terry Collins has been the right manager at the right time.

All I want right now is for Sandy Alderson to find some magical solution that will permit him to move Jason Bay out of town. (The man said from the get-go that he never really wanted to play in New York, and I believe that's been his major problem all along).

Zach Wheeler, Ronny Cedeno and Chris Young are playing rehab games. Chris Young did really well. We can sure use him soon.

I don't think anyone wants Bay

I hold the strange (and possibly radical) theory that you don't have to follow the Yankees' operating philosophy and put an all-star at every position. What you need are 25 guys playing as a team, and that will result in a good season. There's no good reason why the Mets shouldn't have a good year.

And in case you think I've stuffed myself on pie in the sky, remember what Tampa Bay did a couple of seasons ago? The media dissed them all year long as the "Tampa Bay No-Names." But they made everyone in the media look silly, didn't they...even with their "no name" roster.

The Mets' players aren't very good. That's a good reason.

Rays 88 - 74; 3rd in the AL East; 4th most wins in baseball

Organizational Rankings: #2 | FanGraphs Baseball
Prior to the 2009 season, Fangraphs says that the Rays are the 2nd strongest organization in MLB
Quote:
#2: Tampa Bay Rays
Overall: A

A smart front office, the best young group of major league talent in baseball, and a top notch farm system gives the franchise an embarrassment of riches. They don’t have room for all their quality players. Their depth is ridiculous, yet there are few weaknesses on the major league roster that could use an upgrade. The team’s revenue streams aren’t up there with the big boys, but their remarkable talent overcomes that limitation. The Rays are for real, and they’re going to put a contending team on the field for the next half decade at least.
Five Questions: Tampa Bay Rays
I can't find a link to the actual PECOTA projections, which is (what I was really looking for) odd, but this article published in March of 2008 says what I wanted to say:
Quote:
2. Is Andrew Friedman the new Billy Beane?

Perhaps that’s a bit hyperbolic—Friedman likely won’t have a book written about his approach on market efficiency anytime soon—but you have to admire the job the first-time general manager has done with some of the lowest payrolls even for the Rays’ meager history. Friedman has managed to combine talented prospects with a few steady veterans and some breakout candidates to the extent that PECOTA sees the Rays winning 88 games while only “paying” around $2 million per victory.
Rays final records:
2005: 67 - 95
2006: 61 - 101
2007: 66 - 96
Article Published
2008: 97 - 65

The experts see the Rays for what they are: an enormously talented, very well run team that will be in the thick of things in the AL East for the foreseeable future.
Lots of people predicted the Rays success in 2008. Maybe just not the people that you pay attention to
