With or without Cliff Floyd, what’s your confidence level in the Mets advancing in the next round? Is Floyd’s presence that big a deal?

im giving them about 60% chance, just becuase the cards are playing good ball as well…
and it all seems too good to be true.
Floyd was a hot bat in the NLDS, so it’s a blow. But Chavez does give the Mets a more balanced (speed-to-power) lineup, which opens up other avenues.
So again, it’s a blow, but perhaps not a great one.
I’m a nervous wreck.
It hurts the depth of the lineup more than anything. Inserting Chavez for Floyd is no big deal. But replacing Chavez as that extra OF off the bench is alot tougher. I don’t want to see Michael Tucker or Ricky Ledee at all.
allow me to revise and extend my remark… I’m alternating between “nervous wreck” and cautious optimism. they’ve worked all year for this, and now it’s so very very close. I can’t imagine they wouldn’t show up and get to work seizing this wonderful opportunity… though I can certainly fear it (hence the vacillation).
Too good to be true. I know that feeling. I like the pitching matchup tonight in favor of the Mets.
Delcos…agreed. I think we can hit Carp, Glavine may be too crafty for the cards…just stay away from Albert
The Mets have enough power to get by without Floyd. Chavez’s defense could prove more important because runs are always at a premium. But, a thing to remember is Chavez isn’t an automatic out at the plate.
Sooner or later, they’ll have to pitch to Pujols. That’s why I think scoring early is important. With a lead they can afford to work around him.
Carpenter won’t go until Game 3, and the Mets can hit the first two guys. No doubt.
yeah…whoops. i meant the “Weave”
