Mets win game two of the Division Series. As the games move to L.A. and the Dodgers face elimination in this best-of-five series, the Traitors-to-Brooklyn* have to be considered favorites to win game three tomorrow. However, I fancy my team's chances of moving on to the Championship Series. Then the World Series. Then -- I dunno, November maybe.

*The Los Angeles Dodgers are not the Brooklyn Dodgers: the New York Mets are the Brooklyn Dodgers!!
