Mets Vs Royals. A world series that none of the ESPN “experts” could predict. The Kansas City Royals were looking to avoid a repeat of last years blunder and take down Jacob deGrom and The New York Mets. How can you beat the New York Mets’ starting rotation of Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz? Mets starters have combined for an ERA of 2.65 in the postseason, with 69 strikeouts in 54 ⅓ innings.

 

Royals players say that only one teammate seems to have an answerer to that question. Kendrys Morales is determined to find the formula to take down the big three. Teammates say he locks himself away in a closet with footage of the Met’s pitchers and comes out with different tactics and scenarios to take them down.

“They all throw hard, certainly. To be a Mets pitcher, you have to have long hair and throw 100 mph, it seems like,” said Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer. The Royals are spending a chunk of their time looking over footage of the Met’s starting pitchers knowing that Mets’ starters are all capable of executing their secondary pitches; changeups, curveballs, sliders, at any moment in the game. With this game being the biggest game for both teams this season, the tensions are high and I expect both teams to come out guns blazing (in the words of Greg Hardy).

 

The Royals were the underdogs in this year’s World Series without a doubt. They should’ve been think about a pivotal game 6 down 3-2 , they should’ve been think of how to stop Jake deGrom, they should’ve been thinking about how to come from behind but instead they’re thinking how should we celebrate? The Kansas City Royals are now World Series champs. The royals led by surprise star Eric Hosmer had overcome the task that was deemed impossible. They have survived the harsh, ace-filled postseason and won a championship.

 

Hosmer had this to say afterwards. “The way it ended last year, with everything that happened, such a magical run, you knew it couldn’t end like that again. You knew that story had to have a way better ending than losing Game 7.” Had Lucas Duda delivered a strike to the plate, Hosmer would have been out, this game would have been over and that flight back to Kansas City in the morning would have been to play Game 6, not to jump on the parade floats. Instead, a disturbed Duda launched his throw out of the field of play and the world would never be the same.
