We’re now down to the Final Four of Baseball. In the American League we have the Boston Red Sox battling the defending World Series champs, Houston Astros. For the National League, the matchup will feature the Los Angeles Dodgers taking on The Milwaukee Brewers. The Red Sox advanced to the ALCS by beating their rivals New York Yankees three games to one. The Houston Astros advanced by sweeping the Cleveland Indians. Milwaukee advanced to the NLCS by sweeping the Colorado Rockies. The Los Angeles Dodgers finished off the young Atlanta Braves three games to one. The Boston/Houston series will draw the most attention, but the Dodgers/Brewers series could surprise people. Who will advance to play in the Fall Classic?
We kick things off in the American League with the most intriguing matchup. The Boston Red Sox finished with the best record in baseball as they feature a pair of MVP candidates. If the Red Sox will advance, the offense will be key, but the pitching is where it’s at. All eyes have been on David Price because he’s struggled in the playoffs throughout his career. With Chris Sale, he’s still facing issues with his shoulder and this could be something to watch in this series. As far as Houston is concerned, they’re looked at as the favorites despite the Red Sox historic season. Houston is looking to repeat and with veteran Justin Verlander, they have a good shot. Houston’s offense can catch fire at any given time just like the Red Sox. Despite not having the great season like they did last year, they showed how great they can with the sweep of the Indians. This is a hard series for me to pick because the Astros play great against the Red Sox but riding with Boston.
Boston Advances to World Series 4-2
We head to the National League as the Milwaukee Brewers take on the defending NL champ, Los Angeles Dodgers. Many know all about the Los Angeles Dodgers, but not too much about the Brewers. Milwaukee is the home of MVP candidate, Christian Yelich. Milwaukee will clearly be the underdogs against the Dodgers. The best thing about the playoffs is that the hottest team usually come out on top. Milwaukee is definitely the hotter team, but can they prevent the Dodgers from going back to the World Series? Los Angeles has the Brewers beat in damn near every category. Clayton Kershaw will start Game 1 after his masterpiece in the last series. The Dodgers have one of the deepest squads with a mix of veterans and younger guys. Can the Dodgers return to the World Series? Can the Brewers upset the Dodgers to advance to the World Series? I’m rolling with the Dodgers to head back to the World Series.
Los Angeles Advance to World Series 4-1
