What’s better than a rematch of last years World Series on Opening Night? Nothing.
The New York Mets look for a little revenge as they try to spoil the party when they take on Kansas City on Sunday Night Baseball.
New York Mets
New York fans and players have the burnt image in their minds of the Royals celebrating on their home field last year.
While an Opening Night win won’t erase those bad memories, it would be a nice start to get a little dig in. New York will look to Matt Harvey here, a guy this team would be lost without.
The Mets kept Yoenis Cespedes this past offseason which was a huge move for them. Cespedes hit the market for a couple weeks, but felt when it was all said and done the Mets was the best choice for him. Cespedes provides that spark in the middle of the lineup and takes the pressure off a lot of players.
New York will also look for a healthy David Wright to be a crucial key this year. Wright has continued to battle injuries throughout his career, but 2015 was exceptionally worse. Wright provides insurance for Cespedes in the middle of the order, which is such a big piece they need.
Kansas City Royals
Kansas City isn’t just the team to beat in the AL Central, they’ve put a target on their backs from the rest of the league.
The Royals have made back to back World Series trips and they finally got one last year as they open the season looking to defend their trophy. The Royals know the task won’t be easy, as they are in a division that saw a lot of improvements this offseason.
You won’t see too many changes within the Royals this year as they have a majority of the same pitchers and bats.
They got a huge break when Alex Gordon decided to stay with the team after considering leaving for somewhere else.
Him and Morales in the middle of the order will provide a lot of power and spark for this team.
Pitching will be as important as ever for them too. Yordano Ventura will get the ace role and with the back to back post season trips, he’s gotten plenty of experience for being so young.
Ventura gets it up there into the triple digits with his fastball. If he can keep his command, he has a lot of potential to really carry this rotation.
