The dye has been cast for the 2015 Baseball World Series. The question now is, who’s gonna win? Well – here at EM Sports we definitely have our favorite, but we really want to hear from you baseball fans and fanatics out there; who do you believe will eventually win it all and be crowned 2015 “World” Champions?
Now before you cast your vote, here’s some key Team Stats EM Sports has compiled for you on each potential Champ:
The “National League Series Champions” – New York Mets during the regular season were 90–72 (Home: 49–32; Away: 41–40). This is the Mets first trip to the World Series since 2000 where they lost to the NY Yankees in 5 games. They have not won it all since 1986 defeating the Boston Red Sox. To get to the BIG WS Stage this season, the Mets defeated the Los Angeles Dodges 3 games to 2; and then went on to sweep the Chicago Cubs in 4 games. Biggest Assets: Pitching, Pitching and Pitching.
The “American League Series Champions” – Kansas City Royals are returning ALS Champs with a regular season record of 95–67 (Home: 51–30; Away: 44–37). They have “Home Field Advantage” because the American League won the “All Star” game this year. They lost last year to the San Francisco Giants in 7 games, and have not won the World Championship since 1985 defeating the St. Louis Cardinals. To get to the BIG WS Stage for the second year running, Kansas City defeated the Houston Astros 3 games to 2; and the Toronto Blue Jays in 6 games. Biggest Assets: Ability to hit good pitching and manufacture runs, and they are rich in recent WS experience.
It is anybody’s bet who will win, but it is hard to go against the Royals. They are still bruising from a World Series seventh game heartbreaking home field loss last year against the Giants, and yet were able to scrap there way back onto the BIG stage again this season. However, who can count out the gritty and tenacious NY Mets who have a phenomenal pitching rotation that is on fire in the playoffs. So, who’s your pick to win it all and hoist the Trophy?
