    I think a Yankees / Dodgers final would be pretty awesome.

    I worry about the Dodger's relief pitching. They don't have a closer right now. They have power but live by the Home Run. Can they outhit Houston, or the Yankees? And the Dodgers are known to crumble under pressure over the years.

    IMO I think Houston has the upper hand.

    How is their defense? That always seems to become more important in postseason. Also, since batters aren't feasting on quadruple-A middle innings relievers, small or inside ball becomes more important.

    Pretty good defense. In fact it's one of the reasons their pitching looks so good.

    Dodgers - Astros in the WS. Astros in the upset due to home field advantage because of the stupid rule about the all star game.

    Pretty sure a few years ago they got rid of the all star game determining home field advantage.

    They did, which means the Astros get AL home field advantage because of a better season record.

    While I'd like the Yankees to win, I think the Astros will because of better starting pitching. The Yankee starters have been highly erratic all year long.

    Yep, and for some reason when they announced it last night after the win I didn't even realize we'd know.

    Yankees went 4-6 in their last 10
    Astros 8-2
    Twins 8-2.

    Before Yankees get in the WS they gotta start hitting the ball.

    I am excited for the playoffs to start. The Astros are on fire. Minimal injuries (besides the China Doll Correa). Hopefully they keep playing great baseball, but anything can happen in October!!
