World Series Game 5 Preview & Prediction: Kansas City Royals vs. New York Mets

By Jake Rose, 3 months 1 week ago
A healthy portion of the sporting world had probably never heard of Daniel Murphy before his improbable October run. He isn't a household name even in baseball circles. Murphy’s six straight Postseason games with a homerun and his absurd line of .529/.556/.1.294 and 1.850 OPS in the NLCS against the Cubs put him on the tip of every sports writer’s pen from New York to Los Angeles...

World Series Game 4 Recap: Royals Take Advantage of Mets' Mistakes

By Jake Rose, 3 months 2 weeks ago
Just when it appeared that the New York Mets were going to make a run at the Kansas City Royals and tie the series at two games a piece, the game of baseball proved, once again, just how cruel it can be. Perhaps it was the spirit of Halloween night or just the Mets’ magic running out when it was needed most. The Mets made it to the World Series thanks in large part to Daniel Murphy...

World Series Game 4 Preview: Kansas City Royals vs. New York Mets

By Jake Rose, 3 months 2 weeks ago
David Wright is one heck of a ball player — always has been. It feels as if that has been forgotten over the course of the past five seasons. Wright has missed 268 games since the start of the 2011 season, including 124 games this season, thanks to a constant barrage of injuries. One DL stint after the other, it seems. Wright, 32, is the Mets’ captain and long-time third...

World Series Game 3 Recap: Mets' Bats Back Syndergaard in 9-3 Rout of Royals

By Jake Rose, 3 months 2 weeks ago
In order to save their season and this World Series from the brink of elimination, the New York Mets needed to jump on Kansas City Royals starter Yordano Ventura in the early innings and show some grit in the batter’s box. Mets’ starter Noah Syndergaard showed his own moxie with the very first pitch of the game, buzzing the tower of white-hot leadoff hitter Alcides Escobar,...

World Series Game 3 Preview: Kansas City Royals vs. New York Mets

By Jake Rose, 3 months 2 weeks ago
The old baseball adage is that, “Good pitching always beats good hitting.” Not so fast, say the Kansas City Royals.  Surely after this World Series ends, whether the Royals win or lose, newly hired general managers will be shifting the way they build their ball clubs to feature more contact-driven lineups. All season long the Mets' core of young power pitchers bullied...

2015 World Series Preview and Prediction: New York Mets vs. Kansas City Royals

By Jake Rose, 3 months 2 weeks ago
Earlier this summer, the Mets were being written off. They were too banged up, and lacked any tangible run support that could balance out their fantastic pitching rotation. After July, the Mets sat at an uninspiring 53-50 in the underwhelming NL East. With the addition of Yoenis Cespedes in a trade from Detroit, the call up of Michael Conforto, and the return of lineup staples Travis d’...

NLCS Preview and Prediction: Chicago Cubs vs. New York Mets

By Jake Rose, 3 months 4 weeks ago
Forget about the Cubs' 7-0 record against the Mets this season. It doesn’t matter anymore. The Cubs and Mets haven’t faced one another since the July trade deadline, in which the Mets made the move for bomb-hitting, bat-flipping Yoenis Cespedes, who has turned into a superstar since coming to Queens. Since being traded from Detroit, Cespedes has hit 17 home runs with 44 RBIs...

NLDS Preview and Prediction: New York Mets vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

By Jake Rose, 4 months 6 days ago
Los Angeles Dodgers fans nor New York Mets fans want to think about the implications of either of their teams losing in the National League Division Series. That statement seems rather obvious, doesn’t it? But there is more to that shallow declaration than meets the reader’s eye.  Let’s look at the Dodgers first, the highest paid team in baseball’s thriving...

Major League Baseball is promoting an effort to identify the best four players in each team’s history with their "Franchise Four." We selected our choices for Mt. Rushmores a few years ago. Here are updated versions for all 30 teams. Who are the four baseball players that have risen above all others for each organization? The question sounds simple, right? Not so fast. Let the...
