You blinked, and the Mets are now down 2-0 in the World Series.
I knew the Royals were good, but I didn't have any idea how good.
Let's be very clear: Kansas City is an extremely good baseball team, playing at the absolute top of their game.
I'll be honest, I fully expected that the Mets would be able to win one of two in Kansas City.
Not the case, apparently.
The Royals don't give up anything for free. It's that simple.
That's just purely shocking
After that, there was no looking back.
Is this series over? Absolutely not.
But the pressure is on for the Mets, no question about it. I think today's day off really helps them - it will slow down the Royals' roll, it will allow the Mets to regroup after having it absolutely taken to them in Game 1 and Game 2. All that, plus the fact that now the series shifts to Citi Field.
The Mets' pitchers, relatively speaking, are good hitters; the Royals' are not. Advantage Mets.
I believe that Noah Syndergaard can right the ship on Friday night. Really, I do.
