It might be good that the Mets are focusing on the wild card because the Phillies have acquired LHP Cliff Lee and OF Ben Fransisco from the Indians for P Carlos Carrasco and Jason Knapp along with SS Jason Donald and C Lou Marson. The prospects are known as their 2,3,4 and 10th best prospects.
Now don't get me wrong, I love Cliff Lee and think he's a very good pitcher, but I was much more afraid of the Phillies getting Roy Halladay. Lee, Hamels, and Blanton are a pretty solid front three if the Phillies make the playoffs. It will be interesting to see if the Mets do anything or if they stand pat like a lot of people think they will.
