The World Series starts tonight, a matchup between two teams that are pretty similar. I mentioned yesterday how I’m going with the Braves winning in six, but I do believe the Astros have the ability to take it far. It’ll all depend on Houston’s starting pitching. Every World Series comes down to one or two things since the teams playing are pretty evenly matched up. As both offenses come into this one pretty hot, it’ll come down to the pitching. Even the bullpens are pretty well matched up (thought I’d take Atlanta’s right now), so it’ll be up to Houston’s starters to get them far enough into the game where the bullpen can lock it down.

On to the links.
