The 2015 World Series is finally upon us. The Kansas City Royals and the New York Mets are set to do battle. The Royals held the Blue Jays heads under water and watched them slowly drown. The New York Mets stripped the Cubs down and made them look like the inexperienced kids they really are. Let’s break this down really quick. Mind you, I’m a Yankees fan and have no dog in this race but I’m still biased as shit.
The Kansas City Royals are going to win. I know that’s not analysis but I just want to get that out of the way so you know where this is going right away. The Royals bats are a PROBLEM for pitchers. The Mets great pitching is cool or whatever but the Royals number 9 hitter is Alex Rios. He’d be batting like, number 4 on most rosters. They might get like 20 hits a game, probably. Runs on runs on runs.
Please stop tweeting me about the Royals pitchers sucking. The Royals stopped the Blue Jays lineup and I’m pretty sure they hit like, a bajillion home runs this year. That’s a stat I read on ESPN. A bajillion home runs. Point is, the Mets lineup does not at all compare to the Blue Jays. The Mets have significantly less Joe Bautista’s on their team then they need.
And now on to the New York Mets, I guess. The Mets are going to lose. Again, just getting that out of the way. Here’s how the Mets can win this World Series: pitch Jacob deGrom every single night. Anything outside of that is going to be a problem for the Mets. I do not believe in Noah Syndergaard although I can see him blowing A LOT of strikes by a Royals line up that is totally cool with taking pitches and getting on base. Matt Harvey is fat.
I think the DH helps the Mets a lot as they can throw Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson out there. Two guys they acquired near the trade deadline that gave them a huge push offensively and carried them while David Wright was on the DL. And onto the elephant in the room.
Daniel Murphy is done blasting home runs. Whether he just runs out of power juice or Ned Yost actually pitches around him, Murhpy season is over. Unfortunately that means someone else is going to have to step up and I don’t actually believe in any of the Mets bats. They get cold and stay cold for awhile. Either Yoenis Cespedes is 5-5 with 1 home run and 5 RBIs or he’s 0-4 with 3 strikeouts. Cespedes will literally swing at anything. You can throw a pitch into the bleachers and Cespedes will check swing.
So congratulations to the Kansas City Royals and if my prediction is wrong it won’t matter because no one will matter by the time the 2016 season starts and I’m writing about how great Alex Rodriguez is every single day.
