Bullpen needs to instantly shape-up, consistent hitting up and down the line-up, someone besides Carpenter/ Suppan pitching well... Despite all this, I'll call for two upsets (LA isn't favored, are they?)
Cards over Pads
LAD over Mets
LAD over Cards
and then I have no idea who's coming out on top in the AL.
I don't see LA as the underdog against a Pedro-less Mets team. I think losing Pedro cost the Mets their chance at a ring this year.
The Mets won all this year without Pedro... In fact, with him they were 11-12, and without him they were 86-53.
If anything, knowing for sure that Pedro's out makes the playoffs more of a relief. At least we (the fans and the players) aren't stuck in limbo and the Mets can move forward.
