Share your thoughts as to why, if you're so inclined.

The Royals are the best fastball hitting team in the league. That is why they will beat the Mets starting pitching

Can't wait for this series, Royals win based on the above comment.  Actually I see them winning in 5.

Royals should win because I think they're the better team, but I want the Mets to win bad.

I haven't been able to watch a lot of baseball this season since I cut cable, I also tune out odd numbered years because that's when the Giants don't make the playoffs.

I'm surprised only 3 people so far don't care about baseball.

Except they didn't really beat the starting pitching.  3 of the Royals' 4 wins came after the Mets led going into the 8th (once) or 9th (twice) inning.  The Mets lack of offense was much more to blame than the Royals ability to handle the Mets starting pitchers.

Royals only led in 13 of 53 innings.
