    ;)

    I'm a Texas Rangers fan just like you. Doosh.

    Like to see Houston win it all. Not choke like our Texas Rangers did in 2010 (we should have killed the SF Giants) and 2011 (we were better than the Cardinals and choked).

    You pulling for the LA Dodgers? Huh? No way....

    I'm still pissed off at that, then the bull pen blew it after Hamilton hit the 2 run HR in extra innings.

    Same.
    And 2012, when TX was on their way back. Hamilton slacking off in the last weeks of the season, Oakland A's wins the division at the end. Then we get bounced by the Baltimore Orioles in the AL WC game. Uuugghhh!!

    Playoff failures ever since including a couple of losing seasons.

    Houston is trending up and will win the division for the next few years.

    Dodgers in 5.

    Any AL team not residing in Ohio was going to be a heavy underdog in the World Series this year. I think the Dodgers will live up to the billing without needing the dramatics from their last World Series appearance.

    I think the Astros and the choking Indians were the only AL teams that could beat the Dodgers. Possibly.

    LA Dodgers would have crushed the Yankees, most likely swept the Yankees.

    Houston better hope that Verlander gives them two wins, that's their only hope.

    I agree. They need JV to get wins on both of his potential starts.
    They have to go deep in his games and Dallas when he pitches. Also a 3rd starter to step up. They have to go deep in their starts.
    If it becomes battle of the bullpens, Houston would be in trouble. Dodgers' BP is way deeper and superior compared to Houstons'.

    Is Verlander going to start Game 2? He pitched Friday so that would be 4 days rest. Hopefully not, just wondering though

    For some reason I like seeing the northern cities in the WS. Would have much rather seen cubs/Yankees.

    I’d like to see them go deep. But lance McCullers may also become a true weapon for us out of the pen in this series.

    Have the dodgers struggled against lefties this year like they have the last year or two?
