Dante1847;4302911 said:hit it on the head with "proper". yeah, Mets fans always seemed (seem?) to have a disproportionate amount of hope for their team, given their roster. finally their expectations seem to align with how good the team will be.another team Im not sold on is the Brewers, and I swear Im not basing this on their history. EVERYYONE seems to be saying they're gonna be good, if not definite playoff contender. I still don't see it.
Dante1847;4302928 said:I can see the Brewers winning the Central, but only by virtue of how bad the other Central teams are. My thinking is that people are giving them a lot of hope because of the last series. ****, who expects a WS winner coming from the NL West? But it was done, so now everyones looking for this year's Giants, and they fall on the Brewers because of their offseason. Again, I see them falling well short of the expectations.
clashcityrocker10;4302930 said:I agree with you to an extent on the Brewers. They're not as good as they are made out to be (I don't think Greinke is all that good, and people are overvaluing Marcum), but I think they can compete in a fairly weak NL Central. Even if they happen to win that division, they won't make it far in the playoffs.
