LA Dodgers versus the New York Mets. Deemed first and second within the Top 5 Offensive Teams in 2022 MLB by SportsKeeda respectively, the LA vs. NY fever is far from over especially as the Yankees and Angels have just started their showdown. The Dodger Stadium, courtesy of LA, will be housing the Mets in their match this Friday, the 3rd of June.  

 

The Dodgers, fluctuating from their spot across the MLB overall rankings from 1st and 2nd with the New York Yankees, will be facing off with another New York team: the Mets. The Dodgers are in a critical position as we speak. With a 33 win and 16 loss record, they are sandwiched between the Yankees with 34-15 and the Mets with 34-17. While these numbers can be worrying, rankings don’t always represent caliber. The Los Angeles team is the team with the league’s most impressive slugging percentage and the fifth highest batting average. The Dodgers are a well-known and respected bunch. They’re in their spot for a reason. 

 

For the Mets, sitting on third in the MLB, they’re here to prove the Yankees aren’t the only daunting NY team. If they win this feat against the Dodgers, they won’t just win a day’s game, but they’ll climb to second place, even just for a while. The Mets boast of being the team with the second highest batting average and second most runs scored. As of late May, Mark Cahna stars within the team as he bats .289 with four home runs.  

 

With this information alone, it’s tough picking a side as both teams show exemplary performance. We’ll take a gamble this time around and go for the New York Mets. Winning seven of their last 10 games, with five won consecutively, the Mets have built their momentum. The Dodgers, on the other hand, have lost twice to one of the most unlikely opponents. The Pittsburgh Penguins (20th, 21-27) beat them on the 30th and 31st with 6-5 and 5-3 respectively. The Dodgers seem to be rattled, and the Mets will take advantage of that along with their precarious position on the board. The Mets will most definitely not let the opportunity to climb the MLB ladder slip from their fingertips.   

 

10:10 AM, Friday, June 3, 2022. Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, CA.
