Monster MLB series: Braves at Mets August 4-7
The Atlanta Braves and New York Mets are fighting for the National League East crown. The Mets have held onto it for most of the season but the Braves are the defending champions and hoping to repeat what they did in 2022.
From August 4-7, the Braves visit Flushing to play five games in four days against the Mets. A doubleheader on Saturday adds to the frenzy of this battle.
The rivalry between the Braves and Mets doesn’t get quite enough attention. One reason is that the Braves dominating the National League East for so long. However, these two teams have already battled in the postseason twice in the past. This year, they could face off in a rubber match.
This year’s rosters might be two of the most fun. The Mets have the pitching and some decent hitting to back it up. Meanwhile, it’s the Braves who have one of the most underrated and powerful lineups in the game. With five games scheduled, the two clubs will be exhausting their resources and pulling zero punches. The Braves will get their first taste of Max Scherzer and Jacob deGrom possibly pitching on back-to-back days as well.
You should be there. They may wish they hadn’t shown up.
