Second base: Daniel Murphy vs Howie Kendrick

After a slow start Murphy has been more consistent in the second half and has been the Mets most consistent clutch hitter. Plus, he may be the toughest guy to strike out. The only problem is that he has struggled against lefties this year and Clayton Kershaw and Game 3 starter Brett Anderson are both lefty pitchers. Kendrick has been injured in the middle of the season but when healthy, he is one of the more consistent hitting second basemen there is.

Edge: Even

Other than God, sports are my biggest love. My teams are the Mets, Knicks, NY Giants, NY Rangers and St Johns basketball (St. John's alumni). I especially love the Mets like crazy, more than any other team and seeing them win the World Series would be a dream come true and definitely the best sports moment. The Knicks are a close second. I also like to write, so combine that with my passion for sports equals a perfect scenario, I would love to do sports writing long term. If not that, then probably sports broadcasting, cause I love to talk sports as well. In addition to writing for ESNY, I'm also currently writing for Metsmerizedonline.
