NLDS: Mets over Giants in 5
NLDS: Cubs over Dodgers in 5
ALDS: Red Sox over Blue Jays in 4
ALDS: Astros over Tigers in 5

NLCS: Mets over Cubs in 6
ALCS: Red Sox over Astros in 6

World Series: Mets over Red Sox in 6

Ya Gotta Believe, right? I may be an optimist here, but a girl can dream, can’t she?

I don’t think we’ll be revisiting the Wild Card game this season. I do think the Mets can and will take the division if they’re healthy.

NLDS will be a revenge game for the Mets after this past year’s Wild Card loss. They’ll go in with a vengeance, and defeat the Giants in 5 games because of this. Then, we’ll go on to NLCS and meet our good friends the Chicago Cubs. No, we won’t sweep them this time, and i will be close. But if the Mets hitting and pitching were as consistent and strong as it was back in 2015, the Mets will come out on top in 6 games.

Then, the World Series. The Mets will go to the World Series this year. Why? Because last year didn’t turn out as they planned. They fought to get a spot in the postseason, and unfortunately couldn’t go as far as they would have liked to. This is their season to get back there, and go all the way.

However, with pitchers like David Price, Chris Sale, and Drew Pomeranz, the Red Sox will also make it to the World Series, where we’ll meet them. I mean, it’s only fitting that the next World Series win is against who they beat in their last World Series win, right?

Matt Harvey said he wants to bring a championship to Queens. Sandy Alderson says that the team is “all in” and also wants the team to bring a World Series win to Queens. Yoenis Cespedes says that the team has “a great chance” to win the World Series.

Yes, this is all talk and their actions on the field need to prove it, but their eye is on the prize, which is a great thing.

Bring me a championship boys. I want to go to a parade.
