Today is the day the Mets open their world series run. It will definetly be a more difficult run now that Pedro is out and El Duque could be. I assume John Maine will be pitching today who I feel very confident with. I really like the guy and think he is a good pitcher. Though, it will be tough blow if El Duque is not pitching this postseason. Their rotation would be quite weak only having Glavine, Trach, and Maine with a possibility of throwing Dave Williams. I am still very confident in the Mets and believe they can still beat the Dodgers. Good Luck!
