Dodgers in 5 is the way I think it'll unfold.

someone will win and someone will lose and some people will be happy and some sad. Most won;t give a crap one way or the other

game 1
3-2 Dodgers

I'd start Fransico Liarino game 1 save Dallas Keuchel and bullpen by throwing the 1st game 8-2.... a loss is a loss.

You only missed it by 1 run
Kershaw only made 1 mistake.

Now it's on Verlander

I meant to say Dodgers 3-1 :)

Well they wasted Keuchel.... they would've been better off going with Liarino and losing the game 8-1
2 hrs 28 minutes shortest World Series game since game 4 of the 1994 World Series.

Yup
I said the same thing.
They match up again in game 4
Kershaw felt good and had to be talked out of the game and going to the pen.

Yeah, to win the series I felt they had to focus on winning games 3, 4 and 5 at home and then hope to steal game 7
by using both Keuchel and Verlander in the final game.
I even kicked the idea around of dumping the first 2 games to get the match ups you wanted at home.
But that's too dangerous a game to play after they wasted Keuchel.

Verlander is a beast under pressure. He reminds me of Jack Morris when the Twins had him in 1991.
Now you have to send the biggest horse in the barn and hope to scratch out a couple of runs on the road to get him by.
The Astros just haven't been able to find their hitting shoes on the road so far in any of the post season series.
To quote Yogi Berra, "Good pitching beats good hitting every time and vice versa."

game 2
Dodgers 2-1 (and hope I'm wrong)

Astros won 7-6 in 11 innings

WOW
5 home runs in extra innings and 8 home runs in a game both are new MLB records for any game ever.

Dodges broke up Verlander's no hitter with 2 out in the 5th inning with a home run, he went 6 innings, a 2 hitter
but both hits were home runs. Dodgers 1st loss when leading after 8 innings this year.
