2015 MLB Preview: Playoff Picture and World Series

    Nice homer pick, Mets fan! I suppose if Wheeler and Edgin hadn’t gone down, you would have had them in the World Series?!

    It was between the Mets and the Padres for the final wild card spot and I have more faith in the Mets lineup to be honest.

      Just pulling your leg….I’m a Mets fan as well. Not in love with the shiny new Padres outfield? I’m not sure who will last more games, Kemp or Cuddyer!

        Well the outfield is impressive enough, but the rest of the lineup is pretty unimposing. Derek Norris and maybe Jedd Gyorko are above-average at their positions, but I think the Mets lineup is just more solid. Also, I think the presence of Syndergaard, Montero, and Matz waiting in the wings pushes our rotation above theirs.
