It’s already been a groundbreaking season for the Mets, who’s preseason aspirations were finally fulfilled. They earned their first NL East title since 2006 and just their second since the 1980s. They are built to end a nearly 30-year World Series drought. The Dodgers are back in the postseason to rewrite the wrongs from last season’s NLDS. Both teams have bats capable of going off at any time, as YoenisCespedes has revitalized the Mets and the Dodgers have a stacked their lineup with RBI machines. But both teams have been no-hit this year and can be shut down by top pitching.
