I like the fact that the Phillies and the Braves are active this winter.
Â It is clear to everyone around the league that the Braves are looking to make a run and are really just a thumper or two away from really getting back on top.Â Oh, yea and let’s not forget about that pitching staffÂ which has now improved with the additions of Wagner and Saito.Â The Phillies, wellÂ we all know about them, theirÂ not going away anytime soon.Â With the signing of Polanco and possible upgrade in the bullpen, the Phillies will be fighting for the division yet again.
So Omar, it’s time to get your Gameface on and get ready for the Winter Meetings.Â The National League East is becoming a 3 team race for the Pennent, and if you want to make it a four team contest, you better make some moves….and good ones.Â If you don’t, we could be chasing all season long.Â
I like this, I really do.Â Â This willÂ bring outÂ the direction this team is going in.Â If the Wilpons get cheap and restrict Omar, it’s the basement with the Nationals and an empty Citi Field.Â
Maybe this is the motivation that this Front Office needs to get moving.Â Â The Phillies, Braves and Marlins will leave us in the dust ifÂ Minaya sits on your hands while Halladay is begging to be traded, Lackey is waiting for an offer andÂ Castillo is playing Second.Â Â
C’on Omar, it’s Go Time!
Strap on a helmet, dig out the old shoulder pads and go out and improve the Mets.Â
