THANKS FOR THE HAPPY ENDING JOHN After reading this quote from John Smoltz have a urge for a cigarette: {"It's the Mets and then us," John Smoltz said as the Braves opened training camp about 100 miles away at Disney's Wide World of Sports. "They're definitely the favorites. No question." Then the Braves ace went even further. "They're the best team we've had to face so far," Smoltz said. "On paper, they are better than the Marlins were or the Phillies were or the Mets of the past were. They look loaded."} Hey John the money is on the night table. Then we have that noted fiction writer Larry Jones: {"Once again, everybody is picking someone else," Braves third baseman Chipper Jones said. "We know that the Mets are vastly improved, but let's see how it all plays out. We're pretty good, too. They've had some things to say and so have we. It should be interesting."} Who is everyone Larry? So far all the pre season publication have the Braves winning the NL East and the overbearing Tony LaRussa and his Cardinals winning the pennant and the Mets as the Wild Card. I agree with Smoltz, the Mets are the team to beat in the NL East and I no of no one even Mets haters you don't think this is a playoff team. Time will tell. < |
