    Both have a lot of work a head for next season. Both have disappointing seasons. Both should be spending big money on a pitcher, one on a SP, the other on the RP.

    That's an amazing amount of similarity.

    If you are playing any games in September, I'll take Jeter.

    Probably right. Way to many unclutch hitters in that lineup.

    Strikingly similar on the surface but...

    The Mets played in a creampuff division of a triple-A league (interleague play demonstrates this year after year). They would have been 73-89 if they were forced to make a living in a division with the Red Sox, Rays and Blue Jays.

    It's September. It may have taken longer earlier in the year but things have a habit of coming to an end early in September

    dont bother, people just dont seem to get it, comparing the 2 leagues is useless, teams are set up different. Bench is less important in the AL due to the DH. Al teams have stronger lineup by paying a guy to be strictly a hitter

    Which does not explain the disparity in results in the National League parks playing National league rules where one would expect the team structured for that environment to prosper.

    Balances of power swing over time. The AFC has been by far the stronger football conference for the best part of the last decade. In the eighties it was definitely the NFC. Particularly the NFC East. Perhaps this year the NFC is once again moving to parity or better.

    The AL is simply stonger than the NL right now and has been for a long time. The Mets play in a weak division of a weak league and the Yankess play in the toughest division of the stronger league.

    So wait, bother? Or don't bother?

    Baseball economics are going to make it tough to have the balance of power shift to the NL.

    Maybe there can be an NL Bailout

    Honestly at the beginning of the year I did not see the Yankees in the post season. What is really disappointing is the Yankees young pitchers did not step up to where the team could count on them for 2009. The Yankees have lots of work. They need to add 2 starters including an ace. They need a CF, do they keep Abreu, who will play 1st base and see if Posada will be healthy enough to catch in 2009.

    The Mets were expected to challenge in 2008 so yes that was disappointing. The Mets need to keep the Delgado and add a starter and build there bullpen, if they do they will be there in 2009.

    Hopefully the Rays or Red Sox win it again this year. In that order.

    Like revenue sharing? Where greedy owners like Loria pocket the other teams cash?

    The government should step in, baseball is the only non-socialist sport anyway.

    Somehow that makes up for the Yanks season I guess. Toronto won 2 less games with a line-up of Wells-Rios and a bunch of AAAA,mediocre or washed up players. Both teams failed but comments on the NL is like Mets fans saying if only we were in the NL West or AL Central .
