We not only advance to the NLCS while the Yankees go home for the first season where the Mets end on a greater achievement than the Yankees in 15 years since the Yankees finished in last in 1991, we not only go to the World Series, we not only WIN the World Series—-but we beat the very Tigers who put the Yankees away….
Could there be any sweeter confirmation of Mets superiority?
But those are many hypothetical steps away. The Tigers still have 12 outs and 5 wins to record, and the Mets 9 more wins before this little fantasy can be a reality. But it’s a nice fantasy
