Or at least, that's what I'm worried about with the Mets. We've been on cruise control all year, and will probably cruise right into the World Series (although if Maddux keeps that coccoon in his poll, maybe there will be a formidable NL competitor). But if we show up the way we showed up last night, we're going to get our asses mailed back to us in little Etsy knit pouches.
This Nady trade really blew... You mean we couldn't have gotten a Roberto Hernandez quality reliever for a smaller bat than Nady? Or some minor leaguers? Now with Floyd hurt, we're talking dealing for Sean Green and his salary. Is he that much more of an improvement than Nady? Nady certainly came a lot cheaper and had more upside. I thought Xavier Nady might have turned out to be this team's Kevin MacReynolds... not a huge bat, but a solid and consitant one. Oh well... so much for that.
