J Platt, Hot Stove Philly – I’d have to go with the Mets. He biggest struggle the Mets have had over the past few months has been their bullpen. By expanding rosters, the Mets were able to add pitching depth that allows Aaron Heilman, Pedro Feliciano, and Duaner Sanchez some needed rest. The Phillies added some bench help, which adds some depth. I’m just not sure how much it will help. Outside of Greg Golson, who has tremendous speed and excellent defense, most of the players who will see time are minor league veterans, who will contribute minimally.

Jeff Freier, Hot Stove New York – Probably the Mets. With their bullpen problems, having 37 relievers on hand really helps them. Manuel can use Feliciano, Smith and whoever as specialists to face one batter, and he doesn’t have to worry about running out of pitchers. The more the merrier with that ‘pen. The whole roster expansion rule is ridiculous, by the way, even though it helps the Mets. The teams play by one rule for the first five months and then a different rule during the most important part of the year? It’s absurd. But I doubt Jerry Manuel is complaining.
