Daniel Murphy homered in 6 straight games.

The Mets are headed to the World Series – let that sink in.

They came into the playoffs with several questions.

Would Terry Collins be able to manage in the playoffs? – Yes.

Could they hit enough to beat Kershaw? – Yes.

Could they beat Greinke? – Yes.

Beat the Cubs after losing all 7 games in the regular season? – Yes.

Could they beat Arietta and Lester? – Yes.

Win on the road in game 5 of the NLDS? – Yes.

Could Niese and Colon adapt to the bullpen? – Yes.

Can Familia close in the postseason? – resounding Yes.

Could the Mets’ young pitching shutdown a Cubs’ lineup that raked through the Cardinals? – Yes.

Will Wright and Duda break out of their slumps? – Yes.

Could Matz win a clinching game on the road? -Well technically no, but yes!  And fittingly, the win went to Colon who won his first postseason decision since 2001.

Could Murphy really hit another homerun, for the 6th straight game? – Yes.

I’m beginning to feel like Daniel Bryan.

In a run that has been just incredible, including a Sammy Sosa-like homerun streak that now is at a Major League record 6 straight postseason games, the Mets swept the Cubs after being swept by the Cubs all season.

Collins has navigated post season question-marks with aplomb, resisted temptations to push his young starters to do too much and has put the team in position to succeed.

And now, for the first time since the subway series of 2000, the Mets await their American League opponent.
