    Like Beckett, Penny and Pavano in 2003?

    Well, that makes him better than the Mets' rotation! Trade everyone for him now! [/dripping with sarcasm]

    It's an impressive start. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Typically, the teams that win have a pitcher that has had some playoff experience. The '03 Marlins were an anomaly. I'm not taking anything away from them, as they were great in playoff year.

    Looking at th 2006 Marlins, who is comperable to Josh Beckett? Who is their Brad Penny? Their Carl Pavano?

    As you have articulated, the playoffs are a different animal.

    Have to see how they would get through that.

    Won't get a chance to this year.

    But I would take Olsen, Sanchez and Johnson over Trachsel, El Duque and Maine.

    And, I would take the Marlins' 5 over the Mets'

    As I said, I'd definitely take the Mets' rotation for the rest of this year, especially after seeing Pedro pull it together tonight following a rocky beginning. As for the future, keep in mind that the Mets' rotation next year might include Zito and a more seasoned Pelfrey and Maine, not to mention Phillip Humber, a Pelfrey-like prospect who's throwing lights out in the minors right now. The Mets aren't without their share of young, power arms.

    El Duque today in win over Braves: 8in 3H 7Ks

    Had real good stuff, lots of movement. Had Andrew Jones baffled all day.
    Pedro, really settled in after a tough first, and won with less than stellar stuff.
    Maybe a trade isnt as crucial as previously thought??

    Glavine looks like burnt toast out there.

    His outs are howitzer shots.

    Nice... unforunately for those sentiments... Benedict Thomas finally had a clean inning.

    Typical Glavine outing. Shelled in the first and he's settled down since. Of course, the dog-ass lineup he's facing (with the exception of Ryan Howard) isn't exactly Murderer's Row.
