Was tempted to vote B but voted C instead.

I couldn't either.

But when I typed a space before the C it allowed me to save. And it stripped the leading space.

It doesn't allow you to post any single letter. I tried to type B (tho' I voted C). This is, of course, outrageous as one-letter posts are vital.

There's a big gap of what could happen between A and B.

I abstain, courteously.

I have no idea.

I don't think we're going anywhere in the standings without adding something; but even if we don't add a thing I think a collapse is even less likely. I'd like to see some creativity at the deadline; perhaps moving Looper and Glavine for guys who help next year, but I'm not predicting that.

I also abstain courteously.

I'll say B... I'm still figuring Carlos will get hot, and they'll make a little run, but nothing substantial; and there are just too many obstacles between them and a playoff run this year.

I guess the correct answer turned out to be a combination of C and D.

The Mets started September with a 4-13 stretch. Had they merely gone 8-9 over those 17 games they'd still be very much alive.
