MLB season wrap up

by Connor Green | Posted on Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

Yesterday the Kansas City Royals beat the New York Mets 7-2 in extra innings  to clinch their first World Series championship since 1985, this marked the end of the 2015 MLB season. The Royals were simply a better team than the Mets who had countless chances to win last night. The Mets will enter 2016 without a championship ring but an impressive season under their belt. The Mets still have some important decisions to be made this off season like whether to resign their second half star Yoenis Cespedes, also Daniel Murphy, who had an impressive postseason will be a free agent as well. The Mets will still have their fabulous staff of young aces next year headlined by Matt Harvey, Jacob Degrom and Noah Syndergaard. The Mets also have Steven Matz and will have Zack Wheeler returning next year to make an already scary good pitching staff even better. Last night was not a good night for Mets fans as they saw their chances at their first world series championship in nearly 30 years (1986) come to an end. The Mets hope to do what the Royals did and return to the World Series next year and win it all.

After a season of teams that surprised and stunned the whole baseball world like the New York Mets and the Houston Astros, both of whom made the playoffs after very disappointing seasons in 2014. However their were also a lot of disappointing teams this season like the Angels and the Nationals who both missed out on the postseason. All in all in the end the Kansas City Royals rose to the occasion and won the World Series. Their were a lot of big moments this season, this season was the first season that instant replay was available the entire season and it changed a lot of plays. This season also had a lot of fantastic performances like Bryce Harper who made a very strong case for being the best player in the MLB, he finished the season with a league leading 9.9 WAR (ESPN wins above replacement) as well as a lead leading 1.109 OPS (On base plus slugging pct). This season also saw great performances from pitchers like Zack Greinke who finished 2015 with a stellar 1.66 ERA and made his case for having one of the best seasons of all time. There were many great players that emerged this year, players that retired, coaches that were hired, teams that were admired and teams that disappointed. In summary the baseball season has finally come to an end and it brings an off season of teams hoping to accomplish what the Royals were fortunate enough to do this year, become champions.
