Forgot to post this before the game yesterday. But I’ll keep it simple. The Dodgers demonstrated throughout most of the regular season they can beat anybody. Their playoff history tells a different story. This MIGHT be the year that all changes, but after seeing the Cubs in the NLDS, I just feel like they (warning: ultimate sports cliché incoming) know how to win. Their talent might not be enough to match the Dodgers, and probably shouldn’t get them through the World Series, but we’ve seen the Giants do this more than once. Sometimes a team can just make it work in the post-season. I know, I really can’t believe I’m saying that about the Cubs.
I was way off about the Indians in the Division Series, thinking their injuries would make them beatable to the Boston Red Sox, but instead they swept the Red Sox. It’s possible that injuries catch up to the Indians this time, especially with a longer series. But, I think they showed they can win with the roster they have. I expect the Blue Jays to put up a fight, the teams were close in the regular season matchups, the Indians won 4 of the 7 games. I would not be surprised if either team won, but would be surprised if this was another sweep for either team. For the hell of it, I’ll predict this to go the same as the NBA Eastern Conference Finals.
