The differences between these two rotations:
Good rotation: Mets: Harvey, deGrom, Syndergaard, Matz, Colon: 2.98 ERA
Bad rotation: Tigers: Verlander, An Sanchez, Norris, Boyd, Simon: 4.68 ERA
Now compare the 2015 Tigers with 2013:
2015 Tigers: Verlander, An Sanchez, Norris, Boyd, Simon: 4.68 ERA
2013 Tigers: Verlander, Scherzer, Fister, An Sanchez, Porcello: 3.34 ERA
It's quite shocking how the Tigers went from 3.34 to 4.68 in a matter of a few years.


Don't the Tigers have Daniel Norris as well?

That's what I said. Not in 2013, but 2015. It's quite easy to fuck up your rotation overnight. Trade away Porcello and Fister, and let Max Scherzer go, and bring in two really bad and incompetent guys, Greene and Simon. Oh yeah, the bullpen is still shit. So there.

Yes, I think they made some great additions, such as Kang.

Let's go Mets! Win the Series and avenge the Jays! Not to mention quieting down those immature pitchers (listen up Ventura and Volquez).

Just defeat the two pitchers when they start, and Mets have a great deal of advantage. Cueto is not that great.

Get rid of blabbermouth Ventura and aggressive Volquez, and you're gold, Mets. Not only that, but the Met's rotation featuring Harvey, deGrom, Syndergaard, Colon, and Matz has a stellar 2.98 ERA this season.

Yes, I trust in both the offense and defense. Kansas City has an impeccable bullpen, though. I'm not sure how to penetrate their bullpen. :(

Maybe stellar pitching from their starters and high-powered Daniel Murphy will exhaust the bullpen arms.

And Yordano Ventura's emotions are too much. They need to tone it down. The Mets are a well-disciplined team who have composure and good guys, plus one who got hurt by Utley. The Royals get riled up and clear benches using unsportsmanlike conduct.

I bet there is going to be at least one bench clearing in the series, not to mention an intentional injury against the Mets. :p

I predicted two, where Volquez and Ventura will punch someone or throw a pitch at Daniel Murphy's head, and they'll get ejected for the rest of the series.

Volquez is not going to call his opposition for bench clearing after he hits Murphy in the face, right? :palm:

Chapter 1: Volquez and Ventura are taking a walk. Volquez: Man, how did we pull that off?
Ventura: I know, right? We got em so hard today.
Volquez: Who shall we hit in the face next? Cespedes? Daniel Murphy? Any other Mets pitchers?
Ventura: I say you hit em all! Hit em in the face with a 100 mph fastball.
Volquez: That's what I am talkin about!
Ventura: While you're at it, go up to those injured players and swear as much, as loud as you can!
Volquez: Yeah, baby!
Ventura: Nobody will stop us! Mwahahahahahahahahaha!
Volquez and Ventura: Mwahahahahahahahahaha! :twisted:

They're dirty players. Volquez hits a lot of batters, often going for the face, and Ventura swears for no reason at all. Ventura has a blabbermouth. Volquez tries to injure players in a nasty way. They just scoff. They don't even feel sorry.
