I'm a 16 year-old blogger, high school student, and lifelong Mets fan. I've been blogging about the Mets in some form or another for about four years. I embrace the new age, sabermetric way of thinking, but also recognize the importance of scouting and player devlopment.

    Good stuff. A few points, though. Michael Morse had 95 RBI last year, not 73. Also, the folks in Las Vegas, who make their living coming up with the best over-under numbers for wagering, set theirs at 82 for the Nats.

    I’d love to see the Mets have a better record than everyone but the Nats this year in the NL East, but I think their best hope is to pass an underachieving Marlins team. If Reyes, Zambrano, Ramirez and manager Guillen make too volatile a brew, then they might disintegrate in spite of their apparent talent.

      Oh yeah, typo on my part with the RBI. 

      About the over under: I put it lower than what many other people are predicting (maybe too low), but with mostly young guys leading the team, I would expect some inconsistency from the Nats. The over/under should be 82 and I would expect 85, especially if the Mets are bad this year… which it looks like they may be.
