Impossible to compare 2003 to 2015. We are starting four rookies at key positions -- something almost completely unheard of.
What we've done is stunning and points to a long, sustained run. This is not lightning in a bottle, this is the beginning of an era.
Beyond the difference in players, we have a better FO, better scouting, better managing, a better ballpark and better ownership.
It will be a few years before Bryant, Schwarber, Russell, Baez and Soler peak. When they do, we could enter a Golden Era.
If anything the 2015 Mets are closer to the 2003 Cubs with the young staff of aces (Prior, Wood, Zambrano, etc).
So while its important to not lump the 15 Cubs with the 03 Cubs, we also need to realize we've only played 1 game. Its a long, long series.
If we win tonight, I like our chances.
