You are just trying to get free maple syrup picking the Phils to win the National League. I think they have a good shot at it. They always start out slow then pick it up late in the season to just miss the playoffs. Man is that annoying. Watch out for my boy Chase Utley. Should have a nasty year. Hopefully they can get some protection for Howard. They will start off with Burrell behind him but i bet a month or two into the season they have Helms behind him.

Burrell gets a lot of bad press, but I bet he drives in 100 again. He's not the best protection for Howard, but he isn't the worst either. Who knows what you're going to get out of helms.

Here's a question, would you rather have the Mets' 1-4 hitters, or the Phils 1-4?

That ain't the question - they are both good enough, and the choice between the two offenses is minor; the real question is whose pitching staff would you rather have? And right now, its the Phillies. If the Mets had Pedro, it might be close, but without Pedro I really think the Phillies will come out and jump to a surprisingly big lead early. By June they'll be at least 5 games ahead of the Mets.

I took the pitching advantage to the Phils as a given, the top four in the lineups are close.

Mix,
