Jacob deGrom and the Mets try to avoid a 2-0 deficit against Johnny Cueto and the Royals.

The last Game Two of the postseason. It shall be described as pivotal.

Where Yost outmanaged Collins.

As we’re slowly learning, the single most important tactical step a manager can take to win a playoff game is to minimize his starting pitcher’s exposure to the opposing lineup for a third time—if not eliminate that exposure entirely. I say we’re slowly learning, of course, though it’s really a thing many saber-savvy fans and analysts learned five or 10 years ago. It was a major theme of The Book. The slowness of teams’ embrace of this concept has made it maybe the last issue on which outsiders have a substantial, obvious advantage over the median big-league manager.

Son of Raul has a chance to make his major-league debut in the golldarned World Series.

The Situation: The Royals are seeking some additional flexibility at the end of their World Series roster, and Raul Adalberto Mondesi will provide the middle-infield depth that Terrance Gore cannot, while still offering speed to burn as a pinch-runner.

Background: Signed for $2 million in 2011, Mondesi has made impressive strides while being aggressively challenged his entire career as a professional. While he’s spent a full season in each level at which he’s played, Mondesi was always one of the younger players at his levels, and he hadn’t faced a pitcher younger than him until this season at Double-A. While he’s made believers out of many with his glove, speed and arm, the aggressive schedule designed by Kansas City has left his offensive future cloudy with no chance of bases on balls. But viewing his production through the lens of age relative to level, merely surviving is a success, and he has done that—if just.

Playoff Prospectus: World Series Preview: Mets vs Royals

11

Jeffrey Paternostro

One series to rule them all.

The Mets made their first World Series in fifteen years by beating the Dodgers in a thrilling five-game division series, and then sweeping the Cubs in a not particularly dramatic four-game Championship Series. The young starting pitching was excellent and Daniel Murphy did a fine imitation of playoff Carlos Beltran (no, not THAT playoff Carlos Beltran, Mets fans).

Our picks for the playoff races and major awards this season.

Today we reveal the Baseball Prospectus staff predictions for the division standings and the major player awards (MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year) in the American and National Leagues. Each staff member's division standings predictions may be found later in the article. Here, we present a wisdom-of-the-crowds summary of the results. In each table you'll find the average rank of each team in their division with first-place votes in parentheses, plus the results of our pre-season MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year voting.

For the MVP voting, we've slightly amended the traditional points system in place that has been used elsewhere, dropping fourth- and fifth-place votes to make it 10-7-5 for the MVP Award, and the regular 5-3-1 for the Cy Young and Rookie of the Year Awards (that's 5 points for a first-place vote, 3 points for a second-place vote, etc.).

No matter how questionable the decision, everything Ned Yost does this postseason seems to work in the end.

Ned Yost made the big pregame decision, parking Norichika Aoki on the bench in favor of Jarrod Dyson. It was the first time the Royals had changed their starting lineup in more than a month, with Lorenzo Cain sliding to right field and Alex Gordon moving into the second spot in the order. So that's where we'll start before touching on the rest of the night's action.

Down 2-1, the storyline heading into Saturday night is clearly the Giants' decision to not go with their ace on short rest.

The Royals head into Saturday night just two wins away from a World Series title and won’t have to face the Giants ace.

Classifying the fans you'll see in the stands for the next three games of the World Series.

The following originally ran two years ago today. With two exceptionsthe seventh word of the piece, and the section on the woman in the Marlins jersey who turned out to be a dude in a Marlins jersey, and who we now know much, much more aboutit's just as true today, so we hope you'll enjoy it anew.

You will be spending the next two days with the AT&T crowd, so you might as well get to know who they are. While a stadium of 43,000 can hold countless types, the culture of the park can be pretty well summed up by just a few of them.

Few expected these players to steal the show in October, but that didn't stop them from doing so.
