Nothing could be better for baseball and especially fans of baseball thanimages-1 to have the Mets matched images-2up with the Cubs for the National League Championship Series. Of course, the Dodgers will have a say tonight  in whether or not that happens, but wouldn’t it be fun if it did?

We’d have two of the most rabid fan based cities going head to head with frenzied crowds in the stands every night with the National TV lights shining on them. images-38We’d have youth on both sides hungry for their first taste of team presence and victory. We’d have games played at reasonable hoursj where fans could watch and still get up to go to work the next day. We’d have the home grown talent of the Mets pitching staff facing the home grown hitting talent of the Cubs. We’d have the ghosts of Ralph Liner in the TV booth and Harry Caray in the radio booth……..

In short, it would be a baseball moment made in heaven. Greinke vs DeGrom…….that’s not so bad either. We’ll see how it plays out in just a few hours……
