if they are close, its because of mets injuries, which means neither is sniffing the playoffs. my point was philly isnt a contender yet. telling me they finished a few games behind an injury ravaged team tells me nothing
The comparison to the Mets was answering Amusch's Q and anger regarding forgetting about the Mets.

Mets over Jays in 6.
The two CY winners meet in Game 1, Sanchez vs. Thor.

Maybe I was just early  :D :D :D

Never questioned that the Mets have talent (and play a lot of games against the Marlins) the Q is how long the pitching stays healthy. Stick a fork in the Jays, Yanks and Red Sox will rule AL East for a while.

Jake Arrieta to Philadelphia: Good news because Brewers, Cardinals and Nationals didn't sign him. Also it makes Philly a division contender (they also signed Carlos Santana), Washington can't coast until the playoffs anymore.
???
Again, nice to lump all of his numbers together, but going 22-6 with a 1.77 ERA might skew the overall numbers a bit. (And I assume we don't need a discussion about a W-L record pitching for a team that has won 300 games in the last 3 years).
As for the Phils, you're not way off, but neither Santana nor Arietta (as argued above) is a blue-chip superstar, and the Mets had a few of those on the DL for most of last year. If it happens again, maybe you're right; otherwise, I'll take the Mets over the Phils pretty comfortably.

Interesting...
Standings as of today Mets 15-7, Phillies 15-8, Nationals 11-14.
