World Series - Kansas City Royals v New York Mets - Game Five

Will It Be Another Royal October?

5. The Kansas City Royals Will Repeat As World Series Champions: The Royals are coming off a championship and despite losing two key players from their championship team, they are expected to return to the World Series and be the first team since the 1999 and 2000 Yankees to repeat.

4. Giancarlo Stanton Will Win The National League MVP- Stanton is one of the favorites to win the MVP this year. With the Marlins expecting to compete for the National League East crown, it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if Stanton hits 40 home runs and 120 RBIs and lead the Marlins to the postseason.

2. The Boston Red Sox Will Not Go To The Playoffs- Despite the additions of David Price (which they grossly overpaid for) and closer Craig Kimbrel, the Red Sox middle relief is still suspect. With the farewell season of DH David Ortiz coming, it might end a little early for him.
