Home I Latest News I MLB World Series Starts Tonight
Here we go! After a grueling season, it’s finally time: the World Series of Baseball starts tonight. This exciting match up between the LA Dodgers and the Houston Astros is packed with intrigue.
Game 1 gives the LA Dodgers homefield advantage, as they had the best record during the regular season. The Dodgers haven’t been to a World Series since 1988, where they won over the Oakland A’s. The Astros went to the big dance the first and only time back in 2005, but were quickly dismantled by the Chicago White Sox.
Things will be different for both teams in this contest. Most of the current Dodgers weren’t even born the last time they won it all. And the Astros are playing analytically perfect baseball, meaning they have a team of engineers and a NASA researcher planning their every move, much like in the Hollywood movie, MoneyBall.
Projected starting line-up:
The Dodgers are a young, but powerful team at the plate. Look out for rookie Cody Bellinger, Justin Turner, and Yasiel Puig to bring in some runs. Pitcher Clayton Kershaw was the highest paid pitcher in the league this year, and for good reason. The three-time Cy Young Award winner also boasts seven All-Star selections, four ERA titles, and is the only National League pitcher to win MVP honors since 1969.
The star of the Atros is second baseman Jose Altuve. Sure he’s only 5’6″, but he packs a punch and is a serious candidate for the American League Most Valuable Player Award. The 27 year old hit .346 with 24 home runs this season and he’s crushing the postseason with a .400 average.
Besides going up against tough opponents, these teams will also be battling the elements for this Fall Classic. Temperatures in the triple digits are expected, which can have a major impact on the game. The hottest World Series on record so far was game 1 in 2001, when the Diamondbacks played the Yankees in Arizona in 94 degree heat.
