3. Expectations for 2010?
I think David Wright said it best: “â€œWe feel like weâ€™re going to go out there and win the National League East and go deep in the playoffs and win the World Seriesâ€
Now obviously that response is not very rational. My rational side thinks that it will be a very competitive division where the Mets will have to play very well to achieve their goals. I do believe that the WC winner will come out of the East this season and while on paper the Mets do not compare well to the Phillies I believe they do compare very well to teams like the Braves, Marlins, Giants, Cubs, Rockies or whoever those 2nd place teams in each division are. So my expectation is for the Mets to be in the same position they were in 2007 and 2008 with a chance to reverse those fortunes.
