to the World Series.
That's how a sports reporter on CNN described the Mets 4-1 victory over the Cubs and Jake Arrieta last night. I wasn't thinking in those terms; I was thinking in terms of a seven game series. I expected that Arrieta would be the toughest pitcher against the Mets, but the Mets handled him. They scored three in the first inning, including a two-run homer by the sizzling Daniel Murphy.
Dare I hope for a sweep? I can hope, but better settle in for a long series.
