MLB World Series Championship: Toronto Blue Jays (AL – 2) vs. New York Mets (NL – 3)
Toronto Blue Jays
This felt like the matchup penned in destiny ever since the 2012 offseason trades that formed the base of these two teams. You had a pitching duel with Dickey and Syndergaard in Game 2, as Dickey gave up just 2 ER over 7 innings. You had a walk-off HR by Josh Donaldson in Game 1. You had Estrada take yet another no-hitter into late innings in Game 4. Osuna finished the postseason with 6 saves, no earned runs and 8 strikeouts in the World Series alone. Clutch pinch-hits by Colabello and Martin (when Navarro was catching) turned the tide a fair number of times.
New York Mets
Meanwhile, you had a series of great pitching performances, one after another. Harvey continued to be great in postseason play, giving up 3 ER over 14 innings of 16 strikeout play. Colon was called upon just once, but gave up no runs and just 3 hits with 5 strikeouts in 6 innings. deGrom flowed as well as his hair. Duda knocked in 3 home runs, while Cespedes kept getting on base. Some late-inning blowups cost the Mets some games, but it was a tight matchup nonetheless, going down to a crucial Game 7.

Just as Marcus Stroman clinched the AL East division in the regular season, he was crucial for the Blue Jays’ continued success. He pitched 7 innings of 1-run ball, with just 5 hits and 7 strikeouts in his favor. That one run was all the Mets could muster when their season was on the line, and Duda’s postseason success became a memory of a squandered opportunity for all-time greatness. It ended with an Osuna strikeout, as a man too young to celebrate with champagne in the US was glad to celebrate at home in the Rogers Centre.
