    Re: Leading wild card again

    If we do make the playoffs.. who pitches game #3 for us?

    Elizardo who has been cosistent but may not be able to handle the pressure at 23?

    Or Milton who has gone through it before but has shown a higher degree of suckitude than Ramirez thus far in the regular season?

    If you want to go to the World Series, you are going to have to play them anyway. Might as well play them while they have probably had it on cruise control for a few weeks.

    Depends how the 2nd half goes. If the playoffs started today I would go with EZ.

    However lets not get ahead of ourselves.

    somebody else could beat them first. I don't see how they won't be in the World Series, but that is why they play the games.

    Re: Leading wild card again

    a little early for playoff talk... This is an even numbered year correct? However I do like the posistion that our team is in at the moment. Also people check out how young Coffey, Maj, and Bray all are. We have a good chance of maintaining a solid bullpen for years to come...

    Well, to be honest, if it were at Shea, Milton wouldn't be a bad choice, imo (did I really just say that?!?) As much of a pitcher's park as that is, really, might not be that bad of an idea...
