Right things may look bad for the Yankees. However, the Mets are in an even worse spot now. Outside of Johan Santana, they have no reliable starters. Even Pedro is not what he used to be. Their bullpen is truly pathetic. They`ll probably end up overpaying for K-Rod or Brian Fuentes in the offseason out of desperation. Their offense is all they have. On top of all this they have no farm system to speak of.
They collpased for the second year in a row and extended their GM Omar Minaya. So, things could be worse.
