Should we be scared of the boogey man?
The Mets acquisition of Johan Satana is a big blow, but will it spell doom for the Phillies?
The bad news-
He's the best pitcher currently in the majors and it will create at least an additional 5-6 wins for the Mets.
If Pedro is healthy, then the Mets have the best rotation in baseball.
The good news-
The Phillies still have the best offense in the National league.
Despite the anemic off-season, we still pick up some wins by moving Myers to the rotation.
The Mets will eventually regret the contract as Johan will decline or get injured.
The Mets and Phils are pretty evenly matched this year- it will be a classic battle of offense vs defense. Should be fun. Here's hoping for a repeat division title and more!
