Here’s how to make sense of it all.
The Dodgers have a long history of beating the Mets.
In their first three World Series, they have won three of them.
They have a better record than the Mets in the playoffs and they have been better against the Mets at home than they have against anyone else.
But the Dodgers have only played the Mets once this postseason.
The Mets won the first two games.
They’re going to have a lot of fun with this series.
They’re coming off a three-game sweep by the Yankees, who won two of their first two.
But they’ve lost to the Yankees twice in the last four years, and this series should be fun to watch.
This is the Mets’ second trip to the World Finals.
They won three in a row from 2009-11 and five in a season from 2011-14.
The Yankees have won six of their last seven.
The Marlins are a team that has struggled against the Dodgers this postseason, with the Dodgers winning two of its last three and losing two of three.
This series could be a little different.
The Dodgers are coming off back-to-back wins.
They beat the Angels and the White Sox in the first round.
This should be a nice test for them.
The Cardinals, on the other hand, have lost three straight, including a 2-1 loss to the Rockies last week.
They’ve also had two wins against the Cubs, and they’ve had five losses against the Cardinals.
Matt Kemp has been one of the game’s best hitters in this series, but he has a history of being hit in the head.
Matt Kemp and the Dodgers will need to get him off the ground.
He has been hit in both the head and shoulders by a ball in the past.
The Cubs are the reigning National League champions, and the Marlins are coming to town for the first time since the 2013 World Series run.
The Cubs won six in a Row from 2009 to 2013 and the Cardinals won six straight from 2013 to 2014.
The Astros, Rays and Giants are also in the hunt for a spot in the World Cup of Baseball.
They should be good teams.
The Rockies, Astros and Dodgers are the two teams that should be playing well this postseason after winning a combined five in one day at Wrigley Field last year.
The Red Sox are one of those teams.
They haven’t won a World Series since the 2000s.
