In a somewhat fitting conspiracy of events, the NL East champion Mets play the same team they faced when they last finished atop the division in 1988, hopefully this time with more satisfactory results.
Game 1 will be played at Shea on Wednesday, 10/4 at 4pm. We know the Mets will be using Orlando Hernandez in that game, but I don't know that the Dodgers have announced their starter as of yet. Good money is on Brad Penny, who was last seen pitching just one inning on Thursday in Colorado. That sets up a Game 2 matchup of Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux, who last started on Saturday.
