4. I really think we have an outside shot at a Wild Card.

5. If Travis d'Arnaud turns out to be half the player that Buster Posey is I'll be happy.

6. I'll take the strikeouts if Granderson can give us 30 home runs

7. I already miss WFAN.

8. But seriously, what is our radio network now?

9. Maybe Tejada will play with a chip on his shoulder.

10. If everything breaks the right way 90 wins isn't impossible.

11. Bartolo Colon looks great for a 41-year-old.

12. I'll give Terry one more chance.

13. That Ike Davis jersey I got on sale last season is going to be a great investment.
