APTOPIX NLCS Mets Cubs Baseball

1. Mets sweep way into World Series. As Just Mets writes, the sun rose this morning on a Mets National League pennant. Inspired by her team’s NLCS victory, NYC Gal Out and About! writes about love and baseball. News Stitched tries to fathom Daniel Murphy’s unbelievable hot streak that saw him win the NLCS MVP award after homering in his sixth straight postseason game.

2. Back to Kansas City. Facing elimination, the Blue Jays eased their way to a 7-1 win in Game 5 of the ALCS, to send the series back stateside. Blue Jays Musings identified Marco Estrada as the story of the game for the Jays. Drinking the Royals Blue Aid is hoping for a similar outcome when the Game 2 starters face off again in Game 6.

3. Dealing with disappointment. There can be only one World Series winner, which means there are 29 disappointed fan bases every year. The Canuck Cubbie says the Cubs gave fans a season to remember and future to believe in, and markparkinson14 sees good times ahead on the North Side. Stlcardinalsminimo laments that the Mets were able to do what the Cardinals couldn’t do this postseason: get past the Cubs. Newberg Report says not caring as much would ease the heartbreak, but that’s no solution for a fan. Meanwhile, cat loves the dodgers looks at fixing what went wrong for her team.

1. That Seventh Inning. Blue Jays Musings wrote that “you will remember where you were when the game happened.” An unforgettable 53-minute seventh inning — recapped very nicely by The Armchair All-Americans — propelled the Blue Jays to the ALCS. Jose Bautista’s bat flip has people talking, and Thayer’s Thoughts approved of the move. As Cozy Comfy Home discusses Blue Jays Fever spreading across Canada, The Pete Sports Beat asks if the interruption caused by fans at Rogers Centre played a role in the outcome. Despite the tough loss, Newberg Report remains proud of the Rangers and thoroughly enjoyed the 2015 season, while dfwsportsreport is looking forward to bright future in Texas.

On the other side, Just Mets is excited to see young Jacob deGrom get his moment when he takes the mound for the visitors.
