DODGERS AND ASTROS WILL NOT GO DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT

The 2020 postseason is like no other, with COVID-19 playing a big factor in it. Another big factor is in the end it is still baseball, and as many know, baseball is unpredictable. People thought it was crazy when the Indians blew a 3-1 World Series lead to the Cubs, but now the Rays are just a loss away from blowing a 3-0 ALCS lead over the Astros. The Braves are also on the fence, as the Dodgers are currently leading in Game six of the series. If they win this NLCS, then the Braves will blow a 3-1 lead. Those are a lot of "ifs", but the bottom line is you never know what is going to happen.

Regardless of what teams play in the World Series, it should be interesting. There are four very competitive teams left, as both series could possibly go to a Game seven. The Braves and Dodgers are facing off in a matchup that we may get used to seeing. Both are young teams that are already fighting for a spot in the World Series. Their motivation is to prove that they are ready. Then there is the ALCS, with the Rays and Astros facing off. The Rays are made up without a true superstar. They are full of underrated players who have something to prove. Speaking of something to prove, the Astros are the final team looking for a spot in the World Series. They want to prove they earned their title in 2017 despite their cheating scandal. They will battle the Rays tonight to see who gets to prove themselves in the World Series. It could be a wild one, so be ready for anything this year.
