After a long grueling 162 games schedule, the Kansas City Royals and New York Mets will battle for the World Series title. The 2015 World Series marks the 111 meeting between the American League and National League. The AL leads the overall series 63-47.
The Royals are making their second consecutive trip to the series. Last year as the wildcard, the Royals lost in seven games to the San Francisco Giants. After six losing seasons, the New York Mets quietly shocked the baseball world by dominating the NL East. The Mets won the division by seven games over the Washington Nationals who were predicted my many to not only win the Division but win the world series. A preseason article http://espn.go.com/mlb/preview15/story/_/id/12588378/expert-team-predictions-2015-mlb-season polled 88 baseball experts before the season. 37 of the experts (42%) predicted the Washington Nationals would win the World Series.
Both teams have strength in pitching but in a different realm. The Mets could have the edge when it comes to starting pitching but the Royals have the edge in the bullpen. In either case, the traditionalists will tell you that pitching wins. The World Series can not end in a tie, so which team will win the pitching battle?
The Royals lead all postseason teams with a .271 team batting average scoring 63 postseason runs. Surprisingly, with all the attention given to Daniel Murphy and his home streak, the Mets are only batting .235. Both teams have speed and are aggressive on the bases. The Mets have swapped nine bases while the Royals have stolen seven bases. Which team will come through in the clutch?
The offseason is officially upon us, and it began much later than we Mets fans are used to. Before we look forward to 2016, The Rising Apple Report and some of it's most senior veteran writers will gather to discuss the good, the bad, and the eventual follies of the 2015 New York Mets season.
What were some of our favorite moments? Any player that stood out? With a season filled with so many memories, we look forward to discussing the best season in Citi Field history.
And we will also briefly discuss the players to wear 21 in New York Mets history.
So, make sure to join us at 9:30pm ET for the latest edition of the Rising Apple Report!
Jeff is out of town, which means "Podcast Positivity" is back. The Mets have won four games in a row, which is a nice way to rebound from a seven-game losing streak. Greg and I talk about the good times, the Mets' excellent stretch of pitching by young starters, and the nearly-complete lack of offense. We delve into Michael Cuddyer's brutal stretch ever since I purchased a Cuddyer shirsey, Jon Niese's trade value, and plenty more before turning it over to Jeff for an audio update on what he saw in Kingsport—we're calling that the Kingsport Report. And then we return to answer your emails and go off on a few other tangents.
What else can we say? Sam Maxwell, Mike Lecolant and Faith and Fear in Flushing's Greg Prince will get together this evening at 9pm ET to discuss what is now official: The Mets have won the championship of the Eastern Division of baseball's National League. There's nothing more else to say...other than what we will on the podcast.
Join us at 9pm ET!
Rob Cesternino is many things: a Survivor alum, amazing podcast host, and all-around nice guy. Just don't confuse him with Boston Rob like I did - seriously top three most mortifying events of my life.
Yes Rob was kind enough to completely overlook my goof and was an AMAZING podcast guest. His passion and knowledge of the Mets is at an expert level and for a moment I completely forgot that he normally podcasts about television shows.

Mets fans never have a shortage of things to say, and 2015 is no different. Today on "The Diamond," Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal chimes in from their latest road trip to discuss the positives & negatives of this Mets club.
It is here that we discuss New York Mets baseball on Out of the Blue and Orange, an original program of the King James Radio Network.
We take a look at the Mets, and exactly how their season is going. There are sure to be a lot of soap opera moments with this team, and a few good ones along the way.
Our feature segment is The Payoff Pitch with Pastor Dave, featuring youth pastor and diehard Mets fan, David Amendola.
