This is the one we've been waiting for.
It's not just playoff baseball. It's win-or-go-home. This matters.
This is the biggest game the Mets have played in a decade. How about that?
Greinke vs. deGrom. You couldn't ask for a better pitching matchup. Both of these guys have been ridiculous this season. Greinke's numbers are better, but I don't think there's any doubt that deGrom can match up with L.A.'s starter. At least, I'm confident.
The Mets need to get going offensively. They can't get too aggressive and let Greinke come out and dominate, while working quickly and efficiently, like Kershaw did the other day. That won't work; they can't win like that.
What I love is that Terry Collins has said it's all hands on deck for this one.
What does that mean? It means every single inning will be engineered to have the best, and only the best, players in the entire time.
We could see deGrom for six innings, then Syndegaard for one, Harvey for another, and Familia. In fact, I wouldn't rule it out.
There's no reason to hold anything back. It's time to go for it all.
I'm nervous, I'm excited, I'm hopeful.
