We’ve come to the final stop on our look at the postseason teams (unlike Deadspin, we’ve got a reason to not include the Cardinals in this) as we look at the other half of the other NLDS, the New York Mets. The Mets, perhaps more than any other team in the postseason derby, weren’t supposed to be here. Yet a mid-season trade and an imploding competition in Washington has this side of New York back in the playoffs for the first time since Yadier Molina took one over the fence and Adam Wainwright dropped a nasty curve. (I wanted to embed either or both of those, but I figure Mets fans coming here don’t need to relive the agony that much.)
Talking to us today is Paul from Paul’s Random Baseball Stuff. Paul, who is also a big Star Wars fan which is another reason I like him so much, is a Pepper veteran and was glad to get a chance to jump into the postseason fray. Keep an eye on his blog and his Twitter as the Mets try to do the impossible to make them mighty.
