mets in the world series
By Camron Gabb, Junior Writer
Even though they lost to the Kansas City Royals in five games, the New York Mets took NYC on a great ride this past season by reaching their first World Series in nearly a decade.
The Mets lost the World Series and some players are already getting the blame. Jeurys Familia is being blamed for the Mets’ World Series loss against the Kansas City Royals. Even though he was one of the reasons the Mets had an amazing year with 46 saves in the regular season, Familia had three blown saves in the World Series.
The team was led by its starting pitching. “The Dark Knight” Matt Harvey, “Thor” Noah Syndergaard, and Jacob DeGrom formed one of the best pitching staffs in the Major Leagues this year. The trio went 36-22 with over 500 strikeouts this season and went 7-2 in the postseason. The starters are all under the age of 28 and offer great optimism for the future.
Daniel Murphy was the cause of the Mets going into the World Series. He had an amazing postseason as he hit 7 home runs in 9 postseason games. Yoenis Cespedes had an amazing regular season after he was traded to the Mets by hitting .287 with 17 home runs and 44 RBI’s in just 57 games after the trade.
Now that the Mets’ time in the World Series has come to an end, some players caught the eyes of rival teams. Daniel Murphy is most likely going to leave the Mets in free agency after his hot postseason while Cespedes will look to cash in after he slugged the Mets into the postseason.
The Mets have a great young core and their future looks very bright. There is a great chance that, like the Royals this past season, that they can go from World Series losers to World Series champs!
