As we countdown to Game One of the World Series tonight, I can’t help but notice how much the San Francisco Giants remind me of another NL team: The New York Mets.
For anyone still reading, I’m serious, just follow me for a minute. When you look at the Detroit Tigers you see a powerhouse of stars; the best pitcher in the game, a triple crown winner and a larger than life “Prince” of a clean-up hitter. If the Mets want to try and build something like that they’re going to need a decade, a Government bailout and probably some new owners. But, when you look over at the Giants, you see a team built on great pitching and balance, a recipe that the Mets are very close to cooking up themselves.
