Well, we have our World Series contestants. The Houston Astros will take on the Atlanta Braves in a matchup that exactly nobody saw coming.

Both teams are hot and fully deserve to be here. They each picked apart their LCS opponent, getting hot at the right time and riding some solid bullpen performances to get to where they need to be. Their offense are pretty evenly matched so long as Eddie Rosario continues to wear the cape of postseason hero for Atlanta. It’s close, but if this series does come to pitching (and it usually does), you have to think that the Braves have the advantage. They’ll start with Charlie Morton, who has been outstanding for them, and will probably follow with Max Fried. If they get good starts out of Ian Anderson as well, they’ll be tough to beat.

Give me the Braves in 6.

On to the links.
