World Series Mets Royals Baseball

1. Royals take a 2-0 series lead. Johnny Cueto’s dominant Game 2 pitching performance produced the first World Series complete game by an American League pitcher since 1991, as Bullpen, Baseball & Sock Talk recaps. Drinking the Royals Blue Aid was overjoyed to see the return of “Good Cueto” following his struggles last time out in Toronto in Game 3 of the ALCS. From the Mets’ perspective, both Just Mets and Write Your Story Now agree on one thing right now: Ya gotta believe!

2. Neutral perspectives. Gamer Babes from Half Moon Bay reminds us that the Royals jumped out to an early lead in last year’s World Series, but it was the Giants celebrating in the end. Newberg Report wishes it were the Rangers battling the Mets in the Fall Classic, but is happy baseball isn’t over just yet. Meanwhile, One Flew Over the Jays nest asks whether the final week of the season cost the Blue Jays a spot in the World Series. And it’s a lonely October for Tigers Forever, with both the Tigers and her adopted Blue Jays done for the year.

3. Advice for the Marlins. Cardinal Red Baseball discusses Miami’s next manager and Florida Sports View wants to see the Fish target free agent pitcher Doug Fister to see if they can get him back to his best. But the best suggestions may come from On Cloud Conine, who put together some outstanding Halloween costume recommendations for Marlins players.
