Seven advantages the Mets have over the Dodgers

Written by
Time Out New York contributors

Okay, okay, so we're not talking exactly about baseball stats or strategy (though they're better at that, too.) Starting tomorrow, the Mets will face off against the Dodgers in the five-game National League Division Series. Those hoping to catch the game can watch at these kick-ass Met's bars. There's no question that New York is better than LA in general, but there are also specific ways that our baseball fans and teams are better off than their West Coast counterparts. Allow us to elaborate. 

1. Mets fans are funnier than Dodgers fans. With comedians like Jerry Seinfeld and Hank Azaria, it’s pretty easy to find some great Mets-themed comedy on Twitter.

2. The team has definitely gotten the most Daily Show love. Jon Stewart is a big fan, too. 

3. Their proximity to better pastrami. Which our police commissioner knows all too well.

4. Fans can easily get to the game without a car. MTA FTW.

6. They appreciate great food. Citi Field offers concessions from Shake Shack, Blue Smoke and Two Boots.

6. Mr. Met is super cute. He's an anthropomorphic baseball!

7. The Dodgers aren't even LA natives. They started out in Brooklyn (where they introduced a little player named Jackie Robinson).
