The Jays had two days to dwell on why the Cubbies were eliminated and still didn't learn from them. The Cubbies wanted to hit every ball out of the park and just as they scored most of their 8 runs in the series from homeruns, the Jays scored all 3 of their runs from Bautista's 2 homeruns. Although they just saw the Royals scored from 1st on a manufactured run, they couldn't manufacture for themselves even though they had runners on second and third with one out in the 9th. Why? Because they are all trying to hit the ball over the fence.

 

Nonetheless, a very good year for the Jays and they have really good talent going forward. Except that Price may continue to struggle in the postseason. Lastly, I am beginning to think that the Mets came out the bigger winner in that RA trade. Syndergaard is a true flame thrower with good placements. Go Mets.

KC in 6

Yuh sound like a hater bye.

 

That used to be Kari when the Heat ruled.

Bai Kas, me no me baseball from AL Central division. KC has a lot of good hitters and pitchers. Look out for them in 2016 again.

that s just the simple answer, however, championships are won up the middle:

 

pitching

catching

second

shortstop

centre field

 

the rest must compliment those parts but the rest will never win without strength up the middle

But Politi, those comeback hits didn't come up the middle. They were sprayed to the left and right center. The only play up the middle was the one that Murphy messed but even that in all fairness, his vision was blocked by the runner going. No one can go from first to third with any ball hit up the middle. And that starting pitching had the Mets with the lead in games 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5. It is the relievers who lost games 1, 4 & 5. There was no one around who would have lifted Harvey last night after he had just struck out the side in the 8th. So he came back out and it cost him the game. Getting 2 more outs in games 1, six in 4 and 3 in 5 and Mets are the Champions. But that is not the case because every game needs at least 27 outs. All of that is passe now. I like what I saw of the Mets' starting pitchers. They don't look as intimidating as they are. They all have 3 to 4 different pitches and all of them are really good.

my friend "up the middle" refers to positions up the middle and the offensive and defensive strength they bring to the diamond and the calling of the

game. The other positions are mostly played by players who were not good enough to play up the middle but had the offensive numbers to play other positions 

 

That said Murphy is a poor defensive second baseman right now...

I agree Ray. My point to Politi is that the Mets lost this series because of the relievers. Their inability to get a strike out when only a strike out would matter. Those hits were past the infielders not at them. Wright's error came in the 14th when the game should have been won in the 9th.
