Friday Applesauce

Christina Kahrl explains why the Mets have a better chance of making the playoffs than the Yankees. Her findings are based on Baseball Prospectus's Playoff Odds Report.

Nate Silver thinks Barry Bonds might be a good fit with the Mets. I've supported signing Bonds basically all season now, so I'm not likely to change my position at this point. Having said that, I'd still wager dollars to donuts that he plays nowhere this season.

The fact that the Mets' bullpen and/or lack of hitting has cost Johan Santana numerous wins this season doesn't bother him. The fact remains that with some better support he could be looking at 13-15 wins, and with his sub-3.00 ERA he'd be within reach of a 20-win season and would certainly be in the Cy Young discussion.

At MetsGeek, Alex Nelson looks at the pitchers the Mets will face against the Marlins this weekend.

At MetsBlog, Matt Cerrone and Ted Berg interview Giuseppe Franco. Awesome.
