Sounds legit The off season has not took place yet. Sandy Alderson had a very good off season last winter and only injuries curtailed the team from being very good. There are a few big FA bats that could help fill the void of a line-up w/out Cespedes. Guys like Encarnarcion, Bautista or perhaps a trade for J.D. Martinez. The Mets have no choice but to count on those arms staying healthy as they've made their bed in that area. As you are witnessing for a second consecutive post season, elite SP usually trumps good hitting. Especially a line-up full of free swingers. If the Mets arms are healthy they are throwing a Cory Kluber 3 out of every 4 post season games. Cubs still have a legit leg to stand on this WS as they have a huge edge in the non Kluber SP match-ups due to the fact that Cleveland is without a few key SP's due to injury. Clear enough sport?
