We get the World Series no one wanted, the Asterisks vs. the Choppers.

I’m glad for Alex and for Dusty Baker, but I, at the moment, don’t have a favourite. I’m pretty sure that, once a game starts, I’ll find I’m cheering for one of the teams.

I do like Alex Anthopoulos, and if Mike Soroka was pitching, I’m sure I’d be cheering for them. I’d be holding my nose through the ‘chop’. I’d like Alex much more if he would have banned it.

Astros? Dusty Baker is a good guy. And.....well my wife’s sister lived in Houston for years. We went to a game in the Astrodome, several years ago. I saw Cavan Biggio’s dad, and Jeff Bagwell (who had his feet about 6 feet apart in his batting stance). Beyond that, and them gifting us Teoscar Hernandez, I have little good to say about them.

Yeah, I know there should be a third option but that would win too easily.

Let’s have a prediction thread. Tell us who will win, the number of games and the total runs scored between the two teams for a tiebreaker.

I’ll pick the Astros in 6, with 67 runs scored between the two teams. And give us any other prediction you care to make. How many mid-inning Draft King ads there will be? How much ‘the game isn’t as good as it was when I played’ monologues? Please, don’t let ARod be a commentator.
