The wild card in any (MLB) baseball game is the quality of the pitching…good pitching stops good hitting every time! In this series, the Mets have the stronger starting pitching, and the Royals have the better bullpen. If the Mets starters go deep and keep KC off the bases, the Mets can take the Series. The Mets also have more power, but are susceptible to one of my favorite baseball sayings, “live by the home run, die by the home run.” However, when KC is beginning to shut down the opposition, the 7th inning on, is exactly the time that KC hitters come alive. The pressure can become enormous, and KC is constantly putting pressure on the defense. I like the way the KC Royals play baseball!
I’m picking KC in six.
