Bench

Clearly the edge to the Mets due to their depth and abundance of more useful weapons. And this is even without key veteran Juan Uribe. Because they still got Flores who gives them pop from the right side. Conforto does the same from the left side. Kelly Johnson also provides lefty hitting and can play the infield or the outfield. Juan Lagares provides outfield defense and hits well vs lefties. Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who replaced Uribe on the playoff roster, also brings outfield defense and occasional power. And finally Kevin Plawecki backs up d’Arnaud at catcher.

Dodgers bench brings a couple familiar ex Philies. But lets be real here. Both Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley, who’ve tormented the Mets over the years wearing those dreaded red jerseys, are not what they used to be as hitters. Some of LA’s other options are rookie Alex Guerrero and Scott Van Slyke.
