The Mets have some ground to make up over the last six weeks of the season.
Miami has snuck ahead of New York and now they are on the outside looking in on the playoffs. Arizona’s season has been sunk for a while and they are playing for next season.
If the Mets can’t get it done against these guys they don’t deserve a chance to return to the World Series.
Arizona has sunk to 30th in team ERA but their offense has not been stellar this season.
I would admit to not watching a ton of their games but when you look at the numbers of their core players they should score more than they do.

Noah Syndergaard continues to impress but he has not been as dominant as he was earlier in the season – he has not struck out more than 8 batters in a start since the middle of June.
He needs to start getting some support to have a

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
Based on the mound matchup there is no way you can get behind Arizona hear. Shipley has shown little to indicate he can master even the most meager of lineups.
I am afraid with Thor on the mound the only way to play this one with any value will be on the run like. Given the way the Mets struggle to score there is no guarantee there.
