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.

Stroman

1. That Seventh Inning. Blue Jays Musings wrote that “you will remember where you were when the game happened.” An unforgettable 53-minute seventh inning — recapped very nicely by The Armchair All-Americans — propelled the Blue Jays to the ALCS. Jose Bautista’s bat flip has people talking, and Thayer’s Thoughts approved of the move. As Cozy Comfy Home discusses Blue Jays Fever spreading across Canada, The Pete Sports Beat asks if the interruption caused by fans at Rogers Centre played a role in the outcome. Despite the tough loss, Newberg Report remains proud of the Rangers and thoroughly enjoyed the 2015 season, while dfwsportsreport is looking forward to bright future in Texas.

2. Royals back to the ALCS. The defending American League champions will play to defend their title after the Royals rode Johnny Cueto to a win in Game 5 of the ALDS against the Astros. Drinking the Royals Blue Aid says Cueto picked a fine time to throw his best game in a Royals uniform. Even after enduring the heartbreak of Game 4 and the disappointment in the series decider, CHIPALATTA writes that it has been a fantastic ride for the Astros this season. The ALCS matchup now provides The Distinguished Grizzly with the AL rivalry he wants to see.

3. Pitching showdown in Game 5 in LA. If you love pitching, the decisive NLDS game between the Mets and Dodgers has a pitching matchup you’re going to love. Dodger Insider writes that their starter, Zack Greinke, has complex thoughts, but a simple approach. On the other side, Just Mets is excited to see young Jacob deGrom get his moment when he takes the mound for the visitors. Cait and Cleats talks herself through a gameday panic attack with the help of some animated GIFs, and cat loves the dodgers says that the unbelievable has happened.

1. Final Vote. Clayton Kershaw should be an All-Star if you ask Dodger Insider, and Phillies Insider certainly wouldn’t disagree after watching the reigning NL Cy Young Award winner toss a shutout on Wednesday night. But he still needs to win the Esurance All-Star Game 2015 Final Vote to make it to Cincinnati. Meanwhile, Better Off Red continues stumping for their guy, Johnny Cueto.
