Clearly, the advantage here goes to the Mets.
The Royals rotation has been inconsistent and unpredictable. Other than the Game 5 gem vs the Astros, the once Reds ace, Johnny Cueto, has been a disappointment since coming over to KC. Edison Volquez and Yordano Ventura have been inconsistent and while Chris Young and Kris Medlin can be solid, neither of them are durable.
You can’t say enough about the Mets bright, young rotation of Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, and Steven Matz. None of them seem intimidated by the October spotlight and overall they have been dominant.
