GO ROYALS!!!

I am watching the game now and the Royals just tied it at 4-4 in the bottom of the 9th. It has been a great game to watch regardless of what team you want to win.

It was a good game to watch and later listen to on the radio. Very exciting and tense.

Through the years I've had many people tell me baseball is boring. I counter with- the next pitch could be the pitch that starts or ends a rally that changes the game.

I've had a few come back to me later saying they like the game a lot better when they look at it that way.

In baseball you have to get the other team out a minimum of 27 times, no spiking the ball, no kneel downs, no taking the air out of the ball (basketball, not Tom Brady) and other stall tactics, you must play the game to the end.

Of course you all know that if you're reading this thread.

This is HUGE. October Baseball at it's peak!

It is clear that this series is going to go down to the 7th game.

This is an Epic Battle of Baseball Titans!

Royals came out hacking tonight. Very impressive. Tough game for a Mets fan to watch tonight. Last night we let one getaway but tonight we were spanked.
Mets made Cueto look like Cy Young tonight.......not a good time for a team hitting slump. Hope home cooking will help . Lets Go Mets.

How Three Unheralded Contributors Helped Royals Repeat as AL Champs - by Tom Verducci/ MLB/ Sports Illustrated/ si.com

"KANSAS CITY—Players don’t win championships. Organizations do. That truism never was more evident than in demonstrating how the Kansas City Royals repeated as American League champions with a thrilling, one-for-the-ages, tell-it-to-the-grandkids-one-day 4-3 win over Toronto in ALCS Game 6 on Friday.

Lorenzo Cain really did make like Enos Slaughter to score the pennant-winning run by scoring easily from first base on a single with no outs on a play when he was not running with the pitch. (Do yourself a favor and read that description again—slowly. Amazing. You will never see such a play again.) And Wade Davis did channel Mariano Rivera of the 2003 ALCS with one of the most clutch relief performances you ever will see.

But what you didn’t see was how three guys in their mid-50s who haven’t played a major league game in years, if ever, helped the Royals beat the Blue Jays. Think of the diligence and intelligence of Tim Conroy, Paul Gibson and Mike Jirschele as small pieces of a jigsaw puzzle: easy to miss, but the picture isn’t complete without them. With their help, the Royals knew when David Price was throwing his changeup and when he would not throw to first base on a pickoff and where Jose Bautista would throw the baseball if he fielded it far to his left..."

Outstanding pitching will always stop great hitters. Also, a large ball park gave the home team an advantage.

Clear as mud maybe, I don't see it that way.

I woke up today thinking that KC showed us that this is not always true, they lit up one of the best.

I don't see the field itself being an advantage, both teams play on it and can use it's expanse to their advantage.

I see home field advantage as fan support and the last at bat which came into play in game one.

Exactly right. The Royals are a complete team - with good pitching, hitting, and defense. And the Royals have just demonstrated how to beat good pitching.

Now, all the pressure is on the Mets to win the next three.

The Royal pitcher last night, was the first pitcher since 1995 to pitch a complete World Series baseball's game.

Royals hit deGrom harder than any other team has in two years. With 2 strikes he could not put the Royal hitters away and when they made outs they hit the ball hard. deGrom never hit 97/98 on the radar gun constantly last night but I don't think that would have helped much. Royals line-up is tough 1 thru 9. Nothing scares a pitcher more than a team that swings and never misses. That was the Royals in game 2. The field isn't winning this series so far, the Royals are. I still have hope the Mets will come alive like they did in 86 after losing the first two. Lets go Mets!

Actually the field does make a difference. The Royals ball park favors the small ball play of the Royals because of its size. It is not a home run hitters park.

Although I'm an avid baseball fan I don't follow deGrom that closely. But, from my point of view, his problem last night was that he was relying almost exclusively on spotting his fastball, which he was struggling to do. Had he been able to throw a better change or slider, he'd have had multiple K's or easy ground ball outs. Needs a better out pitch against a contact team like the Royals. Trying to blow heaters past a contact team typically doesn't work out very well.

I don't disagree. A team should be built for the park they play half their games in.

In this case, even long ball hitters should be able to do well by hitting it where they ain't.

I agree but his fastball has been his go to pitch until last night. He did have trouble spotting it an never came inside. He has a good curve but KC was way too comfortable in the box hacking away. Mets have a very young staff that will have to learn how to pitch rather than throw . Kudos to KC. That's a tough line up.

The Mets need a dominating pitching performance tonight from Syndergaard.

Also, a stat to throw out there. Teams that have won the first 2 games at home in the World Series, have gone on to win 82% of the time. It ain't over till it's over though, but if the Royals continue to hit, it really is over.

The BBQ was just ok, and the Royals would like to provide a special invite to all the Mets players and their fans to celebrate at victory parade this next week!!!

3-1... Woo-hoo! :banana::banana:

The KC Royals are the best baseball team in 2015. Have could a team come behind in three(3) games and win? Hats off to this team. You are truly the best.
