On paper, the Dodgers are the better team. The Mets have been hot, and as the Giants and Royals proved last year the better team on paper doesn’t always win in the postseason. Baseball playoffs are such a random animal and if the Mets stay scorching though October, it wouldn’t surprise me at all to see the Mets take this best-of-5 series.
However, it’s pretty hard to vote against Kershaw and Greinke in a series where they could realistically pitch in four of five games. So give me the Dodgers in five, which will make it even more heartbreaking when Uribe hits the inevitable walk-off homer to end the Dodger season.
