Nothing like a World Series rematch to spice up things in the middle of June.
Both of these teams have been good this season but it is not looking like a rematch is imminent. The Mets will look to close out this series with a win.
They have been tough to come by of late and as a result the gap between them and Washington is growing.
Kansas City Royals
I think it is safe to say the Royals are hanging in there. They are right there with Cleveland even though their lineup has been missing key cogs and the pitching has not been elite.
The biggest positive of the first half thus far is probably Eric Hosmer. The big lefty is tracking to his first 20 homer season and hitting for a career high average. He and Sal Perez have been the most consistent in the lineup.
Danny Duffy might have the best stuff amongst the starters in KC. He started the season in the bullpen but since joining the rotation in he has been really good in all but one start.
Two starts ago he dominated the White Sox and he can pick apart a Mets lineup that is not elite.
He is the perfect six inning starter to compliment their elite bullpen.
New York Mets
The Mets were swept at home over the weekend, something that you can not just have if this teams wants to win the division.
The offense has been futile again this season – 28th at the moment – even though Yoenes Cespedes is having a career year.
If they couldn’t score much against the Braves than facing the Royals is going to be no picnic.
Bartolo Colon continues to be an ageless wonder. He gets notoriety for what he does at the dish but he wouldn’t even be in the game if he couldn’t throw. A 6-3 record and a 3.01 ERA show he can still get it done.
At home he is even sharper at 2.65. The bullpen has been really good all season. Part of the reason the Mets are second in team ERA.

Free Kansas City vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
I like Duffy a lot but he is a wild card because you just don’t know how deep he is going to go into the game. When he is on he can be as good as almost any lefty not named Clayton Kershaw.
Even though they win when Colon is on the mound you want to think that it could all end at any moment right? As a result you can get good value fading him. I am not saying you should as a rule but it is food for thought.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Kansas City ML
I think this is worth a shot on the ML with KC in an underdog role. The Mets are scuffling right now and this is a team that has proven it can get into deep funks so let’s take advantage.
