    **2015 World Series - Mets vs Royals**

    QUOTE (SoxAce @ Nov 4, 2015 -> 08:18 AM) I don't know how long it's gonna soak in for me that Alex freaking Rios is a World Series champion. I remember a certain poster here who said he will never win anything. People have been telling me my whole life that the Royals would never be good and would never win anything. I'm glad the Royals declined Rios' option though...

    QUOTE (Quinarvy @ Nov 3, 2015 -> 11:36 PM) Royals players decided to talk about how they didn't have a ROY, Cy Young or MVP but they're still awesome and beat them all. God they're assholes You love it. QUOTE (greg775 @ Nov 4, 2015 -> 02:32 AM) Quin, That was Gomes. He took control of the pep rally. I think he was drinkin. It was pretty funny more than anything. Agreed. QUOTE (LittleHurt05 @ Nov 4, 2015 -> 02:36 PM) Because Dyson and Colon are incapable of playing baseball without Gomes whispering sweet nothings in their ear. Yup. Colon immediately credited Gomes for staying on him, non-stop, every day about being ready to make an impact. And he did.

    QUOTE (Flash Tizzle @ Oct 31, 2015 -> 10:20 PM) Go Royals! I can't wait for Hahn to assemble a team to compete with the World Series champions... I like your style! QUOTE (Ballz-n-Strikes @ Oct 31, 2015 -> 11:30 PM) Flash is right. Make moves. Move #1: Cespedes I'd love to see the Sox give Cespedes a massive contract. The Royals have done well against him everywhere he's been. QUOTE (greg775 @ Nov 1, 2015 -> 02:02 AM) You also recognized I was correct about Rios' ineptitude, his continued ineptitude. QUOTE (KyYlE23 @ Nov 1, 2015 -> 09:30 AM) Rios is hitting .289 in the playoffs and hit .368/.368/.529 against the blue Jays. He isn't hitting well in the World Series but his play has been anything but inept. I'm afraid Rios has played well enough late in the season to cause the Royals to pick up his option.

    QUOTE (LittleHurt05 @ Oct 30, 2015 -> 07:21 AM) The thing is, the sole purpose for the trade was to have him in the playoffs to win the WS. His bad performance in the regular season is irrelevant, the division was won anyway. We know what happened in Toronto, but vs. Houston they won his first start, then he dominated in a winner take all game 5. Then after a 14 inning marathon, he came out with a CG gem. I still think he won't be remembered that "fondly" in KC but he will be remembered as a vital piece to winning the title. It may have been a Toronto-Houston ALCS without him. I agree. QUOTE (LittleHurt05 @ Oct 30, 2015 -> 08:10 AM) No it doesn't. Flags fly forever. Truth. QUOTE (LittleHurt05 @ Oct 30, 2015 -> 09:33 AM) For a team like the Royals though, I don't care if Finnegan and Lamb win 5 Cy Youngs, they would make the trade everytime if they win the WS this year. Yup. QUOTE (caulfield12 @ Oct 30, 2015 -> 10:05 AM) And probably the Shields/Davis for Myers/Odorizzi deal still goes down as the most important move of Moore's tenure. How about the Greinke for Cain, Escobar, and Odorizzi? Then putting Odorizzi in that deal for Shields and Davis. QUOTE (greg775 @ Oct 30, 2015 -> 01:21 PM) If the Royals win it the Cueto trade was a runaway success for KC no matter how good those other players get. Like somebody said, flags fly forever and Cueto did just what Moore wanted him to do. Win two huge games (so far) in the postseason. Yup. QUOTE (Swingandalongonetoleft @ Oct 30, 2015 -> 07:09 PM) Syndergaard's like "swing at that". Royals throw high and inside, and their dirty headhunters. Syndergaard does it and he's celebrated. QUOTE (whitesoxjr27 @ Oct 30, 2015 -> 07:51 PM) You think kc will be this good for say the next 2-3 years in your opinion? 2 years maybe but 3 is a stretch. QUOTE (pettie4sox @ Oct 30, 2015 -> 07:55 PM) They will have to pay their draft picks at some point. I don't know what's left on their rookie contracts (Hosmer, Moustakas) Rios, Gordon, Zobrist, Cueto are likely gone after this season so they'll have to find a way to replace their production. Alex Gordon isn't going anywhere. QUOTE (caulfield12 @ Oct 30, 2015 -> 10:26 PM) Now we have a series. Sets up an interesting match-up tmrw with Young's slow stuff...and KC tends to struggle more against lefties and Matz throws hard but not 95-99 typically. Momentum only lasts as long as the next game's starter. Should be fun. Good for the sport of baseball to have some intrigue, especially keeping NYC interested. Young won't pitch more than 4 or 5 innings. Which worries me. QUOTE (OmarComing25 @ Oct 30, 2015 -> 10:59 PM) Sounds like every fanbase ever. That's what I was thinking.

    QUOTE (SouthSideSale @ Oct 28, 2015 -> 08:24 PM) I see Ventura as the douchebag (just a young immature hot head). I don't get the hate on Moose and Hosmer. And ya what Hosmer did was cool and a nice gesture. I just don't see them in the Swisher category. Ventura immature for sure, hopefully he'll grow out of it. QUOTE (whitesoxjr27 @ Oct 28, 2015 -> 08:25 PM) Yes, Baker was the other choice. The Nationals chose wisely. QUOTE (caulfield12 @ Oct 28, 2015 -> 08:46 PM) REALLY stretching things with nicknames. Dark Knight? Wizard of Hos? 'Wizard of Hos' is a stretch but 'The Dark Knight' is just plain stupid. It's HARVEY who was Two-Face not Batman. QUOTE (chw42 @ Oct 28, 2015 -> 08:50 PM) Mets are in trouble. It's not the end of the world if they lose, but to lose starts by deGrom and Harvey hurts a lot. They said it couldn't be done... QUOTE (caulfield12 @ Oct 28, 2015 -> 09:01 PM) Elias Sports Bureau: Home teams that win the first two games of a best-of-7 postseason series go on to win the series 80.8 percent of the time (42-10). Great stat. QUOTE (flavum @ Oct 28, 2015 -> 10:34 PM) The Royals are just the best team in baseball. They'll win two in NY. This series isn't coming back to KC. Royals in 5. QUOTE (greg775 @ Oct 29, 2015 -> 01:48 AM) The only good thing about the Royals is how they shut up their own arrogant fans on Twitter. It's really funny how their lousy fans on Twitter get it shoved right back up their ass by the players. And of course they rip Yost over and over and last time I looked KC was doing OK the last 2 years. it's very funny. These fans think they are so great ... they are like any fans. When things are looking rosy they are all happy. At the FIRST sign of adversity, KC fans freak! You wait, if the Mets win Game Three it'll be back to armageddon for the fans. They so badly want to find a goat and bury that goat (if they lose). I'm glad I'm not on Twitter. I've also never met a Royals fan like that, especially not in the last 2.5-3 years. KC really embraced Ned Yost last season. He use to be so short and sour and defiant in interviews, that's why he was so highly criticized, coupled with his track record. Johnny Cueto definitely deserves to be criticized for how he's pitched in a Royal uniform, but if Game 2 was his last in KC he'll be remembered fondly by most and the trade will have been worth it.

    QUOTE (pettie4sox @ Oct 28, 2015 -> 03:46 PM) Where did the dislike of Hosmer and Moustakas come from? I really don't get it, they don't do anything douchebaggy on the field and they play the game clean and right. Watch any of their interviews. QUOTE (caulfield12 @ Oct 28, 2015 -> 03:56 PM) Probably when Hosmer paid $3000 for a bar bill when drinking with all the Royals' fans in the Power & Light district after the Baltimore series win. http://www.hardballtimes.com/learning-the-...-the-clubhouse/ Part of it's because they mocked a cyber sabre geek who doesn't know how to act around modern day athletes without talking about war and fip and drs. Not surprisingly, the same happened to Lucas Mann when he covered the Clinton Lumber Kings for a year and wrote a book about it. I thought Hosmer inviting the fans out and then picking up the tab was awesome. There was also the $20k tab picked up by Hosmer and other players after they swept the Angels. Why would anybody hate that...? That locker room story is s***ty. I feel bad for the guy. But he admittedly didn't even know who was who or even anything about them without looking them up on his phone. These guys get asked hundreds of questions a day. Most of them are being asked by people by who actually know who they are and who have some clue about what kind of player they are. No wonder they got s***ty with him, but it does still sound like they took it a bit too far. QUOTE (Jose Abreu @ Oct 28, 2015 -> 05:42 PM) They look and act like douchebags, as the above poster said. They also somehow happen to be in the center of KC's many, many bench-clearing incidents, along with Y. Ventura. Those are the 3 guys that really carry this team, especially last year in the playoffs. Hosmer and Moustakas also play 1st and 3rd, meaning they are always front row for the action. I don't see either of them acting like Harper, Bautista, or Papelbon.

    QUOTE (Buehrle>Wood @ Oct 27, 2015 -> 11:24 AM) Also don't get it. You'd think someone like that would be a pinch runner, but Gore is one of the fastest players out there so it's not that. Guess Zobrist's injury is way way worse than thought? Zobrist's wife due in 10 days IIRC. Gore is one dimensionsal, and Mondesi is said to be very fast. QUOTE (WilliamTell @ Oct 27, 2015 -> 06:13 PM) @High Milage: I've been a Chiefs fan on this board since 2004! Chiefs looking like the Bears QUOTE (SouthSideSale @ Oct 27, 2015 -> 10:31 PM) So a guy with a Marlins jacket and a guy with a Dodgers hat....lol It's a KCFD hat. QUOTE (chw42 @ Oct 27, 2015 -> 11:19 PM) Young sucks. I think it's in their best interest not to start him. He's pitched very well this year. They signed him during Spring Training this year. League minimum.

    QUOTE (greg775 @ Oct 25, 2015 -> 01:39 AM) Royals definitely aren't as good this year as last year. I don't know how you can say that. This years' Royals team is MUCH better than last years'. Morales>>>Butler, Zobrist>>Infante, Young>>Guthrie, Rios>Aoki. You could even argue Volquez>Shields. Hard to quantify Cueto at this point, but the talent is there and it's definitely an improvement over Vargas. Everyone else was back and had a better year than last, save maybe Gordon who missed a lot of time with injury. The offense has been TONS better, not to mention more complete. The offense may not be as hot this October as last, but it's still better overall. The bullpen clearly isn't as good as last year, no Holland clarifies that real easy. Herrera is a bit erratic but still very reliable. Madson has struggled as of late. Duffy hasn't got it going in the bullpen. No Finnegan this year, but they have a true lefty "specialist" in Franklin Morales. Wade Davis is still WADE DAVIS, and he's probably more valuable as a closer than as a set-up man. The Mets have great starting pitching, no doubt. They do not have a dominant lefty though, and that eats the Royals up, this year and last. Their bullpen is solid but questionable and somewhat unproven. Their offense is hot but has relied heavily on Murphy and Cespedes. Both are due to cool off at any point. And that sane offense before Cespedes, YUCK. I'm not familiar with the Mets defense, but I doubt it's anywhere as close as good as the Royals.

    QUOTE (caulfield12 @ Oct 24, 2015 -> 05:50 AM) Well, at least you have one good team to cheer for... You might have to change to Sporting KC or KU basketball from the doomed Chiefs, though. No doubt. That thing is UGLY. Probably time to reboot, so many holes. QB, WR, O-Line, D-Line, Secondary. I believe we're stuck with Alex Smith for at least two more years though...

    2013 AL Central Catch All thread

    Royals playing a day/night doubleheader against the Tigers. Won Game 1, 2-1 in Detroit. Still 7.5 back in the Central, 5 back in the Wild Card. The Royals are 6-1 in their last 7 games against Verlander, and Billy Ray Butler is now 27-for-62 (.435) lifetime against him.

    6/21 Sox (Hector Santiago) v. Royals (Cy Guthrie)

    QUOTE (LittleHurt05 @ Jun 21, 2013 -> 06:24 PM) Beating the Royals is all I really care about this season. They have quickly become my most hated team in baseball. We both know you don't mean that.

    6/21 Sox (Hector Santiago) v. Royals (Cy Guthrie)

    Pitchers' duel tonight? Frenchy in the lineup. F---. Dunn/Viciedo/Ramirez are a combined 6 for 67 (.089) against a Guthrie. I keep expecting him to have a start where he looks like Jeremy Guthrie, but it just hasn't happened yet. I'm pretty sure he's given up the most homers in baseball though.
