First ever Mets playoff preview for Remembering Shea! It's a milestone day indeed.
Mets-Dodgers in the NLDS, best of 5, with the Dodgers getting home field advantage for the series.
Here's my prediction. They split the 2 games at Dodger Stadium in two pitching duels for the ages. Each game is ultimately won by a pitcher making a mistake at the wrong time. The Mets take the series at home in 4 games because their starting pitching is deeper (though the game 1 starters could come back in game 4 on short rest if needed). Obviously any new injuries would turn the table, Matz will be okay, and the Mets are able to overcome the Uribe injury in this round.
Citi Field will be rocking on Monday and Tuesday nights.
But I wouldn't lay money down on this. Just look at how many no decisions the young Mets starters had this season. Anything can happen in a 5 game series. But my non-monetary prediction is Mets in 4.
