Congrats to the Kansas City Royals on winning the 2015 World Series. This team continued to fight even when they were losing. They were down, but never out. They dominated this entire series and the better team won. If I could describe the Royals in one word it would be resilient. Eight comebacks victories during the 2015 postseason. The Royals winning the World Series is a great story for MLB. A small market team built on homegrown talent, who love playing together and had a desire to win a championship. Hats off to manager Ned Yost, and the entire Kansas City Royals organization.
Disappointing and heartbreaking loss for the Mets, but what a season. The Mets made several key errors in this series and ultimately that’s what cost them. When you make that many mistakes against a great time like the Royals, they’re always going to make you pay. Mets fans have a lot to be proud. Nobody predicted The Mets would make it to the World Series. Their future is very bright. With pitching like Matt Harvey, Jacob DeGrom, Noah Syndergard, Steven Matz, and let’s not forget a returning Zach Wheeler; the Mets are sure to be back here at some point.
The Mets have several key decisions to make with Murphy and Cespedas both being free agents. Murphy played lights out throughout the postseason. An MLB postseason record 6 straight games with a home run. Seven total homeruns in the postseason. The Mets acquired Cespedas at the trade deadline, and all he did was hit 17 homeruns and collect 44 RBI’s in 44 games with the Mets. He provided the big bat that the Mets have been lacking. How much are both of these players worth? Will the Mets be able resign both players?
