Sherman: Dbacks Loaded for Bear and Set to Dominate the NL

7

FoxSports column, originally printed in the NY Post, about the way Byrnes has built the team into a contender. Focuses especially on the threat to the Mets' attempt to take control of the National League. Even stretching the prospect base to the 25-and-under set to include Jose Reyes and David Wright, the Mets just do not have the breadth of young talent Arizona does. That is an issue moving forward. Because while the Mets' first order of business is taking care of the Phillies, Braves and the NL East, Arizona is beginning to look like the team to beat in the entire National League in 2008 ... and beyond. Arizona has five players 25 or younger in its everyday lineup: first baseman Conor Jackson, shortstop Stephen Drew, third baseman Mark Reynolds, center fielder Chris Young and right fielder Justin Upton. At 20, Upton is the youngest player in the majors and projected as the best of the group. You know your team has arrived when the New York media finally takes notice.
