The Royals had their backs against the wall in Houston, came back, and won the ALDS. They faced a juggernaut. A powerhouse. A wrecking ball of an offense, but held on to beat Toronto in the ALCS.
And as a result, they won their fourth American League pennant and second in as many years.
What a world.
The Royals go on to face the Mets in the World Series, so we talked with Gary Mack from MetsMusings.com to get some insight on the Mets and to share our Royals thoughts with him and his listeners.
This is going to be a series of matchups: fastball throwers vs. fastball hitters. A powerful Mets team against a scrappy Royals team.
We also had to talk about the makeup of the Royals playoff roster and of course had to talk about the anxiety that we ran into during the Blue Jays series up until a remarkable Lorenzo Cain run, and Wade Davis’s unlikely return from rain delay.
It was a fun show and we’re hoping our next episode is celebrating a Royals World Championship.
