Well, certainly not what I was expecting this article to be about.
but, I certainly hope the premise comes true!
Mostly though, it points out that baseball is a team game, and no one player is enough to win or lose by.

My mind went there also. I was all set to comment: ‘not the same thing. Seaver was a home grown Met’. Boy, was I way off.
Could be 2008 was the Phillies year and adding Halladay only ensured them a return trip to post season play they might not have necessarily made without him. Either way, since winning it in 2008, they’ve been eliminated one series sooner as each year went on. Could 2011 be a non division winner and only WC trip in?

Seaver was drafted by the Mets? Wasn’t he? Maybe not the first to draft him but his first MLB appearance was in a met uni, at least I think.

technically no, he was drafted by a different team, and awarded to the Mets due to a technicality. But, all worked out in the end!

Thanks for clearing that up. I researched it a little bit and that all sounds just about right, his draft eligibility having been voided, so on and so forth then an appeal issued and ultimately a lottery between three teams one of which had been the Mets.odd way to get to the majors but hey your definitely right, it worked out pretty darn well.
