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!
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 2015 season, postseason, and World Series is over and while their will be no parade, there will be a Blue & Orange Nation Talking Mets recap. Hosts Vinnie and Mike will discuss what went wrong and what went right during the Amazin' World Series run.
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.
