My post at MetsGeek from a few days before the season started:
"Finally, we have Livan Hernandez. I could not be more against this guy being the fifth starter. An admitted anti-Pedro on the Mets guy, I would still love Pedro over Livan’s rather large rear end. The guy had a 6.05 ERA last year in 180 innings (why, oh why, was he able to pitch that much? What happened to natural selection?). His strikeout-to-walk ratio was 67:43. His WHIP was 1.667. Yet, he has outperformed another pitcher who hasn’t been healthy in almost four years, and he gets the job. Would I rather have Jon Niese? Yes. But more appropriately and likely, I would be all in favor of giving the job to Nelson Figueroa. His stuff is good, man. It really moves."
I know, this isn't exactly Nostradamus-esque. I just found it funny to look back on.
