ESPN: METS FIRST RUNNER UP
Alan Schwartz at ESPN.com thinks the Mets will battle the Astros for the Wild Card in the NL. Now before you call Schwartz all kind of names, he feels they have a good shot at landing in the World Series. Of course he likes the Braves to win the NL East. That's fine but all these experts who are picking the Braves to win the East all give the same reasons because the have won the division for the last 14 seasons. No one tells you it's because they are the class of the division, or because Bobby Cox is Miller Huggins in disguise. It doesn't take much to pick the Braves.
