    that's what the Diamonbacks had said as well; the Dodgers swept them, 3-0

    that's also what the Cubs had said; the Dodgers beat them 3 games to 1

    another dead give away that u've never been to LA.

    the inland part is smoggy; it is still not as bad as Houston

    the coastal side is clear

    Considering a game hasn’t been played yet all we have is in paper to go with.

    And strangely enough, game 1 will be the hottest it's been since I lived in LA.

    They're pretty cocky here. They were expecting their battle of coastal elites, and the Astros thankfully ruined that. The Dodgers are a great team, but I think the Astros are just as great. I think the Astros split in LA and go on to win the series.

    Yeah you got me... Except wait I've been there several times, and it sucked. Are you seriously gonna come into an Astros forum and spew your garbage about LA? Another dead give away you are annoying.

    Or the 86 team, when Lasorda said that we were "renting first place".

    What I love about the match-up....... if you're an Astros fan, you're looking at the Dodgers thinking, Man - how are we going to beat them. But if you're a Dodgers fan, you're thinking the same thing about the Astros.

    Never, in my lifetime, has my favorite team been a fear-inducing, how-do-we-solve-them juggernaut. We've had good teams - I thought the '98 and '04 Astros were pretty doggone formidable. But this team... they're are so deep and good. I mean, they just won a 7-game series with two of their top hitters combining for, what? 3 hits? And their bullpen imploding. There's a lot of depth up and down the roster.

    I think the Dodgers are the better team - but the Astros are not going to go quietly. Should be a terrific series.

    Me too man. This is the heavy weight matchup needed to redeem 2020. Lay it out on the field. Mono y mono.

    Oops.

    Go Rays, and go CFM. Whether it's the Dojers or the br*ves, I will be happy to see that team lose.
