I can’t get over the doodoo garbage analysis that is clearly just trying to pump up ratings.
The Royals O is WORSE than the BJs O. They score FEWER runs. I don’t see how anyone (let alone everyone) can fucking spin that. Obviously, they scored more than the Jays in the ALCS when it counted the most, but come on.
It’s completely fine to say the Royals are great JUST CUZ. They’ve been there. They’re back. They’re great. Just say that. Say they have grit (true) and experience (true). Don’t compare their offense to the BJs and label it better. That’s bad journalism. They don’t have to lie. The two best teams in baseball are in the World Series. In a sort of Möbius Strip of logic, that’s the only result that will ever occur and that’s fine. End of story.
The only reason KC even got out of the ALDS is because the Astros shit the bed hard in that game 4 8th inning debacle. Correa missed a huge one. Flores better be fucking ready. But again, that’s not to take away from KC. Their grit and experience and ability to put the ball in play made things happen for them.
Everybody’s talking about how KC doesn’t strikeout. Fuck that. Strike these motherfuckers out. Everybody’s talking about how KC has a great pen. Uhhhh, Familia, anyone? Familia & Tolo out of the pen? Elite.
Let’s just pray. Pray pray pray. Jesus is GOOOOOOD.
Yost hasn’t even announced the rotation yet. KC has the worst pitching we’ve faced in the playoffs so far. In what order will they trot out their group of assholes? Would any of them be in our rotation? No. They need to keep their hand a secret. We don’t have a secret. We have 4 aces and we don’t care who knows it. Put their names in a hat and pick em. Sheeeiiit. Who you wanna get mowed down by first? Pray. Just get the lead and hold it. Score early. Don’t let their bullpen enter with a lead. Score runs, mow em down, and get it to Familia. The gameplan hasn’t changed.
Just make the plays in the field. The media hype is absurd. To imply that KC wants to face our staff is a lie. Granted, I think both teams are excited and couldn’t care less who they face. But as we know, the media lies. If KC is like Goku or a true warrior or whatever, then they’re saying, “oh boy the Mets! They’re amazin’! This is gonna be a real match!” But the media is implying that KC is saying, “oh boy the Mets! They don’t match up well against us! Oh boy, the pitching with the lowest ERA! We usually do better against pitchers with low ERAs!” It is completely and utterly ridiculous.
They talk about how the Royals hit fastballs well. This fails to mention all the doodoo fastballs they’ve seen from Cleveland and Detroit. They’re a good hitting team, but COME THE FUCK ON. It’s absurd lying. In the words of Joe Maddon, “Harvey is incredible. He located 4 pitches. Nobody can hit that.” Doesn’t sound like the Mets are Team Fastball to me. We’ll see how their “so good at 95+” hitters do against Familia and his 95+ splitter.
The World Series begins tomorrow. Pray.
