Despite facing baseball best pitcher in Jake Arrieta and Back To The Future predicting that the Chicago Cubs would win the World Series in 2015, the New York Mets reached their 5th World Series last night in Chicago after completing a 4 game sweep over the Chicago Cubs. The Mets, who never trailed in the series, will face the Kansas City Royals or the Toronto Blue Jays for Game 1 on Tuesday.
The Mets will hope that their sudden star, Daniel Murphy, brings his gilded bat to the World Series as Murphy homered for the sixth game in a row, a slugging streak that set a new major league postseason record. He had four hits in Game 4 on Wednesday and torched the Cubs for four home runs and a .529 average in the series.
Heck, the Mets, doing all the right things? It is a new world, indeed, and the Mets are on top of it — at least, the National League side of it. They will soon have their chance to stand alone.
