World Series Recap
Nostalgic. That’s what one could term the Kansas City Royals with coming into the postseason. After losing last year’s World Series in 7 games to the San Francisco Giants, the Royals entered the playoffs with a fiery vengeance, looking for redemption. In their way stood the red hot New York Mets. The Royals defeated the Houston Astros and the Toronto Blue Jays to win the AL pennant, while the NY Mets handled the LA Dodgers and Chicago Cubs.
The series was overall very one-sided. The Royals took care of the Mets in 5 games by outscoring them 27 to 19. The Royals finished the season 95-67 and the Mets fell to 90-72. Kansas City catcher Salvador Perez won the World Series MVP, the first at his position since Toronto Blue Jays’ catcher Pat Borders did it in 1992. He had a batting average of .364.
Next year, I would expect the Royals to be back in the hunt once again. The Mets will be back as well. In the AL, look for the Yankees, Rangers, Blue Jays, Astros, and maybe even the Twins to challenge the defending world champions. The NL is filled with dangerous teams such as the promisingly young Chicago Cubs, the experienced St. Louis Cardinals, the talented Washington Nationals, the dangerous LA Dodgers, and the slept-on Pittsburgh Pirates that will join the Mets in the race for the playoffs next season.
