Two good reasons to like Mets' Takahashi
Takahashi is owned in a scant 4.7 percent of ESPN standard (10-team mixed) leagues, up from a meager 0.6 percent one week ago, so I still get the impression there's plenty of uncertainty about his potential. I admit I didn't know what to expect from him this spring, when the 35-year-old -- no, he is not a kid! -- came over from Japan, bringing success as both a starting pitcher and reliever with him. Takahashi made it clear he wanted to start games for the Mets, but until recently he didn't get that chance. Now I wonder how he'll lose the opportunity.
