Which of the last two NL champions gets to face the Cubs?

After last night's craziness between the Orioles and the Blue Jays, it's time for another do-or-die game. It's an absolutely tremendous pitching matchup, with two of the top contenders for the NL Cy Young squaring off: Madison Bumgarner and Noah Syndergaard. Bumgarner has been almost unbeatable in the playoffs, but maybe Syndergaard can knock him off his pedestal. Either way, it will not be easy for that other New York team, which would have to face the 103-win Cubs if they advance anyway.

So will it be Even Year Bullshit time or some Miracle Mets weirdness? Either way, the game will be on ESPN, so join us to talk about it.
