October is fast approaching and the clock is getting late on the 2022 regular season. Most divisions have already been decided but there’s still a few spots to watch as we enter this pivotal two week stretch.
Plenty has been written about the Braves chasing down the Mets in the NL East but that’s mostly a result of a historic run from Atlanta rather than a major collapse by New York. Luckily, the Mets have a soft schedule to finish with series against MIL, OAK, MIA, and WSH. I like them to get back on track starting at home against the Pirates and a wildly inconsistent Mitch Keller.
Cleveland has vastly outperformed their pre season expectations but they’re stumbling to the finish line due to key injuries among their starters. With a pieced together rotation, they desperately need a win anytime Shane Bieber or Triston McKenzie take the mound and I’m counting on that to happen against a fading Minnesota team.
Wager of the Week: NYM (-270) + CLE (-144)
