The Mets take on the Brewers this weekend at Citi Field — could this be a preview of a postseason series?
The Brewers are coming off a surprise NL Central crown (not surprising to me, though; I predicted it). They are a solid team featuring the reigning MVP, Christian Yelich, who is on pace for like 80 homers and 190 RBIs.
Yet they are sitting at .500, mostly due to their pitching. They needed to go out and sign Gio Gonzalez to fill out their starting rotation, much to the chagrin of Mets fans who were busy fitting Gonzalez for Mets blue and orange.
So the Mets and Brewers have a lot in common — two teams with playoff aspirations with struggling pitching staffs. However, the Mets are tied for first place in the NL East, two games over .500. The Brewers are in fourth in the NL Central. That and the fact that the Mets are hosting give them the edge in the three-game set. I suggest looking for game odds tomorrow because most games for tomorrow aren’t out yet. There are odds via SBD that will be updated in time for tomorrow’s game so keep that page bookmarked. It’ll show you odds for other games being played in the same day.
I think both of these teams will find their way to October, with a match-up a definite possible. So it might be a good idea to keep a close eye on this series.
