The Prediction: The Mets will win the World Series this season with the help of Johan Santana
How it will happen: Well the Mets were supposed to be in the World Series before last year's horrid Semptember. They have the pretty much exact same team except for the fact that they traded nearly nothing for 2 time Cy Young winner Johan Santana. Last year Santana had 15 wins and a 3.33 ERA. That was considered a down year for him. I wonder what an up year would be like? Also now Santana will have much more run support than he did in Minny with a high scoring Mets team. The Mets also have young super-stars David Wright and Jose Reyes who are both top 5 players probably. All-star Carlos Beltran is also in New York and he will blast 30+ homers and 110 RBI's per season. They also have Carlos Delgado who is declining but still can hit 25 homers in a season. The pitching that backs Johan Santana is John Maine and Oliver Perez who both won 15 games last year, Pedro Martinez, a former Cy-Young winner, and Orlando Hernandez who can still win 8-10 games in a season. This is all backed by one of baseball's best closers, Billy Wagner. If the Mets don't win the World Series then they will definetely at least be there. Still with such a talented team, anything else would be a dissapointment!
