It’s finally here, the 2015 World Series. Who would have thought the matchup would be the New York Mets and the Kansas City Royals?

The New York Mets and the Kansas City Royals.

That’s right folks, the 2015 World Series features the Mets from the NL and the Royals from the AL.

The Mets are coming off a sweep of the Chicago Cubs in the NLCS in reaching the Fall Classic, after edging past the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games in the NLDS. The Mets have played like a contending team ever since they made their late July acquisitions to boost the club and they have continued it on in the postseason to unexpectedly reach the World Series, where they will look to win the World Series for the first time since 1986.

The Royals are back in the World Series for the second straight year after losing a tough seven game series to the San Francisco Giants in last season’s World Series. They will look to get that elusive title this time around and win it all for the first time since 1985.

This looks to be the makings of a really competitive and interesting series. Both of them have lineups with players that can beat you in different ways. The Mets have one of the best if not the best starting rotations in the game while the Royals have one of the deepest bullpens in the game.

Here are the positional breakdowns for both teams.

Other than God, sports are my biggest love. My teams are the Mets, Knicks, NY Giants, NY Rangers and St Johns basketball (St. John's alumni). I especially love the Mets like crazy, more than any other team and seeing them win the World Series would be a dream come true and definitely the best sports moment. The Knicks are a close second. I also like to write, so combine that with my passion for sports equals a perfect scenario, I would love to do sports writing long term. If not that, then probably sports broadcasting, cause I love to talk sports as well. In addition to writing for ESNY, I'm also currently writing for Metsmerizedonline.
