Kansas City Royals vs. Toronto Blue Jays

Blue Jays in 6

This was a tough call because this series seems like the more evenly matched series of this round. But, after the Blue Jays reverse sweep of the Rangers, ending with an unbelievable Game 5, this team has proved they can win when it matters (as cliché as that might be). I think the Royals will take whatever game Cueto pitches (likely Game 3), and possibly make it through another. But I think between Bautista, Donaldson, Encarnación, and Tulowitzki, they’ll be able to power their way through other Royals pitchers.

New York Mets vs. Chicago Cubs

Cubs in 6

As much as it pains me to admit this. The Cubs have the better roster and won 7 more regular season games than the Mets. But, considering the history of both franchises, this could be a wacky series. I would love nothing more than to be wrong here and watch Cespedes hit a grand slam off of Arrieta, but I won’t hold my breath. The Mets will likely pull of a win or two at home and make this competitive.
