Ugh. The Royals are gonna win the World Series. I know it, you know it, everybody knows it. We're halfway there already and the rest feels like a formality at this point.
That's not entirely fair to the Mets, who now get three home games to prove themselves and get back into the series. But, with all due respect, I'll believe it when I see it. I've just watched this Kansas City team shred through every opponent other than Madison Bumgarner over the last year-plus. No matter how much you think you've got a win sealed up, you don't, because they will come back and find a way to beat you. The game could be over for half an hour and they'd score a pair of runs in the press conference to steal the victory. And on the flipside, you will never come back against their bullpen, to an extent of perfection I've only seen in the late-90s Yankees dynasty.
It's bad enough that the Royals are going to win. At least they truly deserve a ring. But do I really have to look at Eric Hosmer's stupid face for two more games?
But hey, at least it's still live baseball. There won't be any more of that a week from now. May as well enjoy it while we can!
