Mets are about set …Mets-Cardinals starting. You never know, this could be a NLCS preview. Cardinals are solid, the league’s best and Mets will be better. This could happen for Mets if pitching holds up. The Mets have only a couple of questions needing to be answered in the next few days. Fifth starter is done, second is done, right is done. All those were questions when camp opened. The only thing left is the number of pitchers on the staff, 11 or 12, and Darren Oliver, who’s pitching today, could be the guy because the Mets, needing a lefty specialist and after sending down Royce Ring a few days ago.
Going, going, gone …Mets beat writers held our annual home run pool today. My team is Albert Pujols, Carlos Delgado, Todd Helton, Alfonso Soriano, Jason Giambi and Vernon Wells. I need a comeback year from Helton, Soriano to play for a contract and Congress to leave Giambi alone.
