New York Mets, Los Angeles Dodgers Set For NLDSFinally, the time for sitting around the dreaming about MLB Postseason glory or nightmarish finishes is over.

Your New York Mets are ready to go in Game 1 of the NLDS against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Jacob deGrom, of course, will take the ball from manager Terry Collins and oppose quite possibly the best pitcher in the world, Clayton Kershaw.

The 25-man rosters are set, as are the Game 1 lineups:

Catcher Travis d’Arnaud will have a heavy task of batting fifth in between the two lefties (up against the lefty Kershaw). As expected, the veteran Michael Conforto will play in favor of the lefty Michael Conforto.

First pitch comes your way at 9:45 PM ET.
