Give me STL, NYM, Rays and Mariners 

As funny as it would be to see the Mets lose early, I think with Scherzer and deGrom they’ll be fine

I wouldn't be so sure. DeGrom has been struggling and the Padres took 2 of 3 from NY twice this year. Including a win over Scherzer.

That is exactly what the Mets thought in the Series vs the Braves.

If Scherzer isn't right then he will have a problem.

Remember how he pitched vs the Braves as a Dodger??

 

I expect the Mets to win but it would not be shocking in the slightest to see them lose.

It would be incredible if they lost. Also think we are just better than the Padres all around. Not sure they have the pitching we do. If Soto and Bell play like they did against us, we may be in business.

Either way, neither is getting by LA. The WC puts you at such a disadvantage. Let's say the Mets win, they start deGrom, Scherzer and sweep SD. They'd have to use Bassitt and Carrasco/Walker in Games 1 and 2. DeGrom and Scherzer wouldn't be available until 3&4. Then you'd be counting on Bassitt in 5. If they didn't sweep and had to win 3, then you are stuck with Carrasco and Walker as your Games 1&2 in LA. 

Bassitt is a fine #3 for the playoffs but you don't want to lead off a series with your 3/4 guys on the road against a 110 win team.

Tbh, there’s only one NL team that can beat LA. The only team to do it the past 2 years, the Braves. We have 4 guys we can start and one of the best pens in baseball. We can win ugly, or we can win in a pretty fashion. Not saying we beat them, but the only 2 (maybe 3) teams that can beat the Dodgers are the Braves, Astros and maybe the Yankees. Maybe on them

Padres/Mets is like UF/Tenn to me. Where’s Bane when you need him?

 

Just look at it like this..... No matter who wins we can point and laugh at the loser for being bounced in the wild card.

These two teams have spent so much money and resources and they couldn't win their respective divisions....and one is going to be making vacation plans.

Completely agree.. but I’d still love to see the field implode with those two teams engulfed. Throw in a fan as well.

edit: with the term “fan” used loosely.. very very loosely

I don’t think my marriage could survive our ending the careers of Pujols, Wainwright, and Molina. My wife would hang me from the St. Louis Arch.

Hey tl;dr, you remember 1998? Yes it was a long time ago, but man anything can happen!

I'm really looking forward to these wild card games. It's much easier to sit back and enjoy postseason baseball when Atlanta is already in the next round. Hoping for series that goes to distance.

yeah lets have philly win thanks so we can demolish em ourselves w/o needing ump help for cardinals since the retirees after this year.

 

we all know how screwed we get vs em in playoffs.
