we didn't lose in 2006 because of Reyes, he had a hell of a season and a pretty decent NLCS...we lost because our sluggers (cough cough Delgado) couldn't hit LHP so teams stacked every lefty they had against us; because of our bullpen (I believe that was when Randolph was afraid to let Wagner pitch); because Traschell didn't show up ready to pitch; and because Beltran likes to look at called third strikes...

that whole "the Mets need to split up the core" thing was started by a Yankee fan that has one of the most influencial talkshows on NYC radio...They needed more than just a 3 person core, this isn't basketball or hockey...
