I am calling for a World Series victory for the these guys....
The reason is simple, and not very original....pitching. The Royals probably have a better eight man lineup than the Mets, but I think that the combined talents of deGrom, Harvey, Syndegaard, Matz and the bullpen will prevail. But really, how great would it be if this goes to seventh game, the Mets starter needs to come out early, and all 42 years and 300 pounds of Bartolo Colon comes out of the bullpen in long relief and heroically pitches the Mets to a Game Seven victory? Right out of Hollywood, right? Not that I am predicting that, but it would be fun.
So, here it is: Mets in six games. And just for an added proposition bet - Lucas Duda for Series MVP.
As always, watch, but don't bet.
