Angel Pagan is waxing optimistic about the Mets’ chances in 2011:
“Everyone is counting on Philadelphia, but they have to do it. I got my money on my team, bro. I love challenges and that’s why I’m looking forward to it. I believe in surprises.”
Immediately after that statement, Pagan was banned from baseball for life for being an admitted gambler.
And even if he wasn’t, he’d be committed to an asylum anyway for thinking that the Mets have a legitimate shot at knocking off Philly.
