Re: MLB Playoffs.
I think Kershaws best days are behind him, and the Dodgers were crazy to overpay him. I also believe most teams would rather play a Wild Card team over a team that won 106 games and that was in cruise control for a while at the end. Do you think the Yankees would rather play Tampa Bay or Houston?? I hear what you are saying with the Nationals pitching as i am sure you saw, but the Nationals BP is a little sketchy even after the deadline moves. I think Scherzer is dinked up also. I think St.Louis will beat Washington in 7 games, and if they get lucky will be playing another wild card team for the WS. Now just in case Houston does win, all bets are off. The Yankees would be a slight favorite over either the Nats or Cardinals and the Astros a little bigger favorite over either NL team. I guess you are referring to Soto as being the best hitter in the NL. Well he is pretty damn good, but im not sure he is the best just yet. Lets wait until two teams remain and make picks. St. Louis can make money for me, but id have a few concerns picking them or anyone else to beat Houston. I did pick Houston when they beat the Dodgers a few years ago and i did think those two would be the final two this season. One thing about sports is it is a lot harder picking the winners before the game than it is after. Fantasy league baseball has me liking my players and not as much liking a single team. I still quietly like the Orioles (but its not easy) but im starting to shift ever so slightly to becoming a Bombers fan, being another AL East team and all. Ive never changed teams, but the Orioles owner just wont die so i may have to soon.
