Who wins the NL Pennant?

Now that Pedro is out 4-6 weeks, who's gonna win?

Call me a homer, but I think it's still the Mets. If the 'Stros get in, though, they have a real chance, but that's a big if.

I really don't know... I do think it will be an interesting post season.

Funny thing is, I think Philly and Houston have the best shot if either can make the playoffs.

Agreed.

I don't think it would be ridiculous to say the Phils could match up with a Pedro-less Mets because everyone knows they have the offense to compete, but so do the Mets. I hope both of them get in.. it should make it more competitive than the current seeds.

Honestly, I'm amazed that the Mets bandwagon has emptied so quickly. Did people just not realize that Pedro was hurt for the past two months? Yeesh.

Plus Myers, Hamels, Lieber, Wolf and Moyer could be just as good as any other playoff rotation in the NL IMO.

With Houston only needing to carry their 3 best starters, I think they can be quite dangerous if they get into the playoffs.

If they get in, I will say they win the NL. If not, I think it could be San Diego.

SD will be dangerous with Peavy, Young and a great pen but I don't think they have the hitters.
