Most of this morning's report was compiled prior to Game 5 of the Mets LAD game. I will have detailed thoughts on that series in tomorrow's report.
The Mets beat the Dodgers by playing the odds correctly. They started their best pitcher (Jacob deGrom), followed by someone that could easily excel as a closer (Noah Syndergaard), and then tossed up two innings by their current premier closer (Jeurys Familia).
You just knew as soon as this game was tied 2-2 that it would end 3-2 in somebody's favor.
Regardless of all the talented bats in both dugouts, these are pitcher teams and, for this series, deGrom/Thor bested Kershaw/Grienke.
Hero of the game... future free agent Daniel Murphy.
Boy, am I going to have a lot to say about this tomorrow.
