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.

That was more impressive than the walk off. It's plays like that, that really make the sport.

When they pull that shift why not just bunt down the third baseline every time?

I've wondered the same. Maybe it ain't as easy as it looks.
