    Jeurys Familia celebrates after the Mets 3-2 victory against the Los Angeles Dodgers in game five of the National League Division Series at Dodger Stadium.

    The good news is the Mets are back in the National League Championship Series for the first time since 2006.  The bad news is that after vanquishing Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke in most dramatic fashion, the Amazins now must face ace Jake Arrieta and the red-hot Chicago Cubs.  But these Mets are also feeling like a team of destiny.
