And the first pitch is Tuesday night in Kansas City.
That was no doubt the nadir of New York's storybook season. If they ever do, they can mail one tout de suite to the bungalow near Belmont where Mayor Megan Barry and husband Bruce (a long-time Scene contributor, as you got exhausted of reading during the election) live. To me, I would rather have a team that doesn't make the World Series than a team that makes it and loses, especially twice and in back to back years.
The World Series starts Tuesday, October 27 at 8:07 p.m. ET in Kansas City, Missouri.
It could then show the progression of this team from worst to first and then it would finish with showing them as the 2015 World Series Champions.
The Royals have home field advantage in the World Series because the American League won the All-Star Game.
Neither the Mets, nor the Royals have been that close to glory since.
Last year, the team made the playoffs for the first time since 1985.
The Mets continued their incredible bounce back season by eliminating the Chicago Cubs in the National League Championship Series. When a team changes managers that often, it means it is losing more games than it wins.
Whereas the Royals have Johnny Cueto, who I'd trust with my laundry maybe.
We're hoping the bet comes out in Stonestreet's favor! 250 with five homers and 13 RBIs for New York. Will anyone really be surprised if the Mets score a few runs off the Royals bullpen after their start could only give them 5-innings? They'll take on a determined and experienced Royals team that thrives on making consistent contact at the plate.
Things got wacky later when the game was briefly delayed after the Fox Sports broadcast lost power due to a problem with generators.
Like I said, the Royals offense is the only one this postseason to mount multiple multi inning, multi run attacks in the 7-9 innings.
Underneath the long locks and catchy, comic-book nicknames like Thor (Syndergaard), The Dark Knight (Harvey) and The deGrominator, these precocious Mets pitchers have winning stuff in spades. Cueto is one of the best pitchers in the game, but his inconsistent play does leave doubt. I can't go against my heart here though, so I'm taking the Mets in 6.
