Both teams have had problems with their pitching at points in this season. The Mets are really good, but beatable (the Phillies have played very well against them recently).
The reason why I think the Yankees will win is because even when they don't hit well, they make the other team's pitcher work. The Yankees took a lot of pitches before Abreu arrived. But Abreu works pitchers more than any other hitter in Major League baseball. I think he's going to be scary now that he finally has a chance to be seen in the postseason. Also key Yankees (such as Jeter) and their manager have a lot of experience in the post-season.
Dude...if you are going to state stats, at least come correct...
Delgado has the SAME amount of home runs as Giambi, MORE doubles, and his batting average is about 20 points HIGHER than Giambi's...and thats just this year...Delgado CRUSHED Giambi's stats last year and the year before...and before that that Giambi was doped up...
Oh...and Delgado is a MUCH better fielder...Giambi has 7 errors in 61 games at 1B this year...Delgado has 7 in 123 games...you do the math...there's a reason Giambi DH's half the time...Delgado has never been a DH
Also taking Lo Duca over Posada is as biased as one can be in this thread. Even most Met fans should realize this isn't even close to being true.
Neither have been too good or bad in the field this year (although Posada has the edge here too) but Posada is MILES ahead of Lo Duca when it comes to offense. Lo Duca has the edge AVG and yet Posada still has a much better OBP (which means more) and hits for way more power than Lo Duca.
been hitting like .400 since the all-star break
That's nice... what about all the games before the all-star break (which was more than half the season)???
Either way, I watched those games. This Soler guy was brought up from the minors, and he pitched against the Yankees twice and the Red Sox once. He was completely terrible. We didn't use our best pitchers against most AL teams. They were like throwaways for Randolph.
BTW, I love how you used your magic crystal ball to tell us that the Mets wouldn't make playoffs in the NL:rollingeyes:
