One Win Away

It’s happened in the past. A team has gone down 3-0 and somehow someway dropped 4 in a row and lost. Cough 04 Yankees Cough cough. However, I don’t think that will happen this time.
A few months ago, the Mets weren’t even looked at as a contender. All everyone said is the Nationals are too good. They had no chance. Yet they went on to win the division by 7 games. Then went on to beat the LA Dodgers in 5. Now the Mets, have a 3 game lead on the Chicago Cubs.
People have asked why the Mets are so fun to watch. I have 3 answers.
1. Heart, the players are playing not only for the chance at a World Series but for their fans and for fun.
2. The Young Studs. Can much more be said of Jacob Degrom, Noah Syndergaard, Matt Harvey, and Steven Matz. They have been outstanding in the Playoffs.
Pitching
3. Last, but one of the biggest factors is Daniel Murphy. I do not think I have ever seen a playoff performance like this man has shown. He is on fire.

Tonight, we will see the Mets go for the sweep as Matz will take the mound against Chicago’s Jason Hammel.

As a Red Sox fan, I am strongly pulling for New York because let’s be honest 2004 is just still so cool that it is the only time that anything like that has happened.
