Morning Brief: October 16

Morning Brief: October 16 [Scott Wilson, flikr]


The Mets are going to the National League Championship series. Last night they beat out the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 5 of the NLDS. As such, the team will go on to face the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night at Citi Field. And if they can get four more wins, they will advance to their first World Series since 2000. Many fans and analysts think last night's game showed that the Mets have what it takes to face the Cubs' powerful offense, and that this year will be their year.
