The Mets cruised through the NL East this year but I think the entire division has a lot to look forward to, they were just all really young. Look at all the young talent they have.
Mets - Reyes, Wright, Maine, Pelfrey?, Milledge? Even Beltran is fairly young Phillies - Howard, Utley, Hamels, Rollins Braves - Franceour, McCann, Laroche, Andruw is only 29 too Nationals - Zimmerman, Nick Johnson, Kearns Marlins - Cabrera and Dontrelle alone is two of the best young players but in addition to that they have a ton of young guys who have played well at some point in the season. Uggla, Jacobs, Willingham, Hanley, Josh Johnson, Olsen, Nolasco, and they still got Hermida too.
Insane Scenario #1: Theo Epstein and Terry Francona wind up with the Cubs. They bring Chicago a World Series title nearly ten years after bringing Boston a title. They become Baseball Gods. Insane Scenario #2: Theo Epstein winds up with the Cubs.
