Beltran to Rollins: We are the team to beat

Beltran calls out Rollins and publicly states that the Mets are the favorite to win the division this year. Wouldn't be a big deal if this was Pedro saying it, but Beltran of all people?!?!?!?!

Absolutely hilarious....

It worked for Rollins and the Phils last season.
Maybe this is the sort of thing that'll put the Mets over the hump. :-D

Incorrect. Words spoken in February will not put the Mets over the hump.

These two gentlemen will.......

I love that of all people, Beltran is the one to come out and say this. Shows that he is now comfortable playing in NY and is now ready to be a veteran leader on this team...let's see if they can back it up now

I would also count the "addition" of 180 more innings from Pedro as making them even hotter favourites. No one seems to be talking about that. They've pretty much added Johan AND Pedro to their 2008 line-up.

Not sold on Pedro yet, I would like to see that he is healthy and effective. If Pedro is healthy he will be good not as good as he was in the past, but he will still be a good pitcher. I just have my doubts that he can last 180 IP.

im not totally sold on that if pedro doesn't hold up. Obviously johan makes them the front runners, I'll admit that. And Phils didn't do things on par with the mets, but it really comes down to lidge and pedro IMO. Lidge moves myers back to starting, so its like the Phils added a quality starter themselves. Plyus while Jenkins and Feliz aren't awesome Feliz is better than dobbs/helms.
