Keep dreaming Mets fans. The reality is that all you're going to get is a 3rd place finish.

I saw much (granted not all) of batting practice during Sunday's workout. Homeruns were not in short supply. Nick Evans hit a bunch of shots into the left and left-center stands, Ryan Church played pepper with the facing of the "Pepsi Porch," Carlos Beltran christened the "Pepsi Porch," and even Bobby Kielty hit a few deep into the left field stands. There were more than a few homers that went out in center towards the apple over the 408 marker. I'm not saying it will be easy to hit homers at Citi Field, and Gary Sheffield did his share, but let's try to keep it in perspective.

Sheff hit about a buck fifty in Detroit. The infield can hold him in
