Forget Back to the Future II, the Mets rewrote the future on Tuesday sweeping the Cubs in the NLCS to secure their berth in the 2015 World Series.
Ironically on the day when Doc Brown and Marty McFly went Back to the Future, Oct. 21, 2015, the Amazin’s completed a clean sweep of Chicago and proved that the prediction in Steven Spielberg's classic was slightly off.
Now with six days before Game 1 of the World Series, the Mets still do not know whether the Royals or the Blue Jays will represent the American League.
Nonetheless, New York will use the time off to nurse a few nagging injuries including Yoenis Cespedes’ sore left shoulder and Matt Harvey’s sore left triceps.
The Mets have been clicking on all cylinders and Daniel Murphy’s bat has been raking at a legendary pace this postseason. The Amazin’s are hoping that their second baseman’s hot streak carries over into the final series of the year as they keep their sights set on the ultimate prize.
New York will enter hostile territory against either a high-powered Toronto offense or a resilient Kansas City squad that was within a hit of winning the World Series in 2014.
Whatever the matchup ends up being, this year’s Fall Classic promises to be a compelling matchup as the Mets chase their first championship since 1986.
