New York Mets

The NLCS is finally here and for the New York Mets and Chicago Cubs, it can’t come soon enough. Here’s a quick glance at what to expect.

Two major markets? Check. Two of the more storied franchises in MLB history? Check. Two teams who haven’t won a championship in a while? Check. Two rabid fan-bases who are ready to tear down the stadium should their team win? Major check.

The New York Mets and Chicago Cubs are about to begin the 2015 NLCS, and everybody is ready.

With any new series in baseball, rosters must be set. And for both Terry Collins and Joe Maddon, their 25-men are each set:

The only change from a New York perspective comes with lefty Sean Gillmartin replacing Erik Goeddel in the bullpen.

The schedule is also set:

As are the Game 1 starting pitchers and lineups:

Michael Cuddyer will receive the surprising Game 1 start at first-base in favor of Lucas Duda. He’ll oppose lefty Jon Lester.

Of course, Matt Harvey will take the ball from Terry Collins. He’ll look to avenge is struggles from Game 3 of the NLDS.

First pitch comes your way at 8:07 PM ET from Queens.
