As the time to first pitch grows ever closer, we catch up with Joseph DeCaro who is the Executive Editor of MetsmerizedOnline.com
We appreciate Joseph answering a few questions for us!
The Mets certainly provide the Royals with a new challenge. Being from the NL, they have many players we have not had the chance to see up cloase. With a great starting rotation and a solid hitting lineup, it looks like we may be in for an exciting series. So…here are a few questions:
What is the Mets greatest strength going in to this World Series?
Starting Pitching is by far their greatest strength. They have four elite young talents who each throw so hard, but it's their command of their secondary pitches that make them so dangerous.
Middle relief. They have struggled to find effective and consistent relief to bridge the gap to their closer who is among the best.
Favorite moment of the postseason so far?
For me it would have to be the overall performance of Daniel Murphy. It was unexpected and caught all of us by surprise. It's singularly the most dominating one man performance I've ever seen. He's unstoppable right now.
Who has to perform well for the Mets to be victorious?
For me it's two players, David Wright and Lucas Duda. If they get hot I think the Mets will be unbeatable when you consider their other strengths.
What scares you most about the Royals?
They're resilient, unpredictable, and I respect their adherence to the fundamentals. I rooted for them last season to go all the way. They're an exciting team.
How many games will it take for the Royals to win the World Series?
How many games will it take for the Mets to win the World Series? Fixed. Five games.
