World Series Game 3 Discussion Thread: Royals @ Mets

New, comment

The Game 3 hopes for New York ride on the arm of Noah Syndergaard.

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets are down 2-0 and desperately need to take Game 3 to make this a series. It's been a while since we've seen a team come from 2-0 down to win the World Series, but when it happens, a New York team tends to be involved.

Most recently, the Yankees did it to the Braves in 1996. Before that the Mets did it to the Red Sox in 1986, and the Yankees had it done to them at the hands of the Dodgers in 1981. In fact, if you go back through history, eight of the 11 World Series that saw a team come back from a 2-0 deficit involved a New York team, and one of the three that didn't involved the 1985 Royals. Perhaps we're due.
