Let's talk World Series!

Postby Pogotheostrich » Thu Oct 20, 2005 1:31 pm

Almost everything I have read says the WS is a toss-up. Maybe it is my NL bias but I'm not giving the ChiSox much of a chance.
Houston has the better SP, bullpen and defense. The lineups seems pretty even to me.

What say you Cafe?

I say it should be a pretty competitive series. I could see it going either way. That said, I'll go with the Stros in 7.

I think the stros will take it in 6, but I wouldnt mind a game7, which would make the win a lot more dramatic.

I'll be a maverick and take the Astros, in 7. :-b

But these are two very evenly matched teams, personnel-wise.
1 3 4 6 7 8 8 9 10 15 16 23 32 37 42 44 49 51

Astros in 6. Battle of the pitching, as it should be.

I have to root for Houston, but only because of Pettitte.

It should be interesting for sure!

From the Houston side, Pettitte actually shuts down righties (better than lefties and) better than Oswalt goes regularly, and Chicago's big bashers are righties. Though Oswalt has had an incredible post season. It'll be tough for the ChiSox to get it going against Astros pitching big 3, but 4 complete games in a row means something.

Interesting, the Cards (#1), Astros (#2), and ChiSox (#4) were in the top 4 in ERA throughout the season.

It should definitely be a series for big, timely hits and for heroes to arise in a pitching-intensive duel.
