Before the season I picked the Orioles to beat the Nationals in the World Series. I also picked the Yankees to finish last in AL East. Those picks were not accurate. But I get another chance now.
I pick the Kansas City Royals to beat the New York Mets. Here’s why: The Mets pitchers will not face a bunch of homer happy sluggers who strike out a lot. Royal hitters make contact and run the bases. Daniel Murphy will cool off during the Mets long time off. The Royals are more experienced; they don’t rattle. Royals in seven.
