does anybody else feel like the Mets are too high? I know they got K-Rod and Putz but after that they have....Duaner Sanchez and Seab Green :-P . I'd personally put them right behind Tampa Bay who has lights out middle relief, even with Bradford injured. (Shouse, Nelson, Howell, Balfour, Wheeler, Percival yes please)

i agree with masterx, outside of putz and krod there really isnt much. if you saw the games last season then you saw what everyone else did. feliciano and sanchez were more inconsistant than anything else.

ERA doesn't tell the whole story for a pitcher and if thats all u based ur rankings then i suggest u revisit this.

WHIP, Ks to Innings Pitched, and Ks per 9 are much more helpful when looking at a pitchers body of work.
