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.
I don't see why Nomar can't play first - he did a capable job filling in at third for the Cubs last year. And I'm guessing that the .320 lifetime average is the reason teams were flocking to pick him up.
