Houston's offense has always been their biggest strength, and the team showed how big its muscles are in the playoffs. Led by Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa, the Astros were able to generate enough offense to power them past the Red Sox and the Yankees.
The Astros' starting pitching has been solid, with Dallas Keuchel and Justin Verlander leading the way on the pitching staff. All of Houston's star players showed up to play in the postseason, and they will continue to show up to beat the red-hot Dodgers.
In the postseason, the regular season doesn't matter. It only matters how hot you are once you make it. Fortunately for the Dodgers, they have both going for them. Blessed with the best record in MLB, Los Angeles took its regular season success and translated it to the postseason. The team is peaking at the right time, only losing one game on the way to the Fall Classic. The Dodgers pitching has been a huge part of that, notching a 1.64 ERA in the National League Championship Series.
Los Angeles' bats are also coming alive, with clutch performances from Chris Taylor, Justin Turner and Kike Hernandez showing up at the right times to power the Dodgers to victory. They are the hottest team in baseball, and no one can stop them. The Dodgers will win the World Series.
