2 Point Lead: Puppy Predictions


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Anyone arriving a little early to a New York Mets game this season has probably witnessed "The Walk."

For opposing hitters, it's become an imposing march to impending doom.

Riding four young starters all the way through October, the hard-throwing Mets are ready to fire their best stuff at the Kansas City Royals in the 111th World Series. Game 1 is Tuesday night at Kauffman Stadium, with Harvey set to pitch against Edinson Volquez.

"I like our rotation no matter who's out there," New York manager Terry Collins said. "I've got a lot of confidence in them."
