Cause they are from NY, have 2 young stars and are pretty good.
Still you'd think that MLB.com would at least wait until November until they start speculating about next year's WS.

At least it's not another Eckstein man-love article.

I think it might be playing on the fact that the Mets were heavily favored to beat the Cards, and not only did they lose, but the Cards went on to win the WS fielding, arguably, their worst team in the past few years.

But yeah, I agree it's a little early for speculation; I also agree that thankfully it isn't another article kissing Eckstein's little-boy ass.

Love it! ;-D

Def. too early to say that they WILL win. I mean its like the Mets paid MLB to write this article. There are plenty of other teams with legitimate chances next year.

Biggest media market in the world and the Mets have the two most marketable players in baseball in Wright and Reyes.
