    Is it possible for both teams to lose?

    Yes, and I'm sure the Dodgers have no skeletons in their closets.

    Good luck today! Hope you guys actually get to the NLCS! (Not really, though)

    There's some rumors going around that Lance's arm stiffness at the end of the White Sox series may be pointing toward something more severe. I'd be devastated for him if he's out for the series, but even without their ace, I'm confident Houston has enough talent to take down Boston in this series.

    The Red Sox are hot, but in terms of lineup and overall talent, the Astros are the better team on paper. Having home-field advantage certainly doesn't hurt either. I look forward to a great series, though! Boston took down the Yankees and Rays, so they're no joke—hoping to get some revenge for 2018!

    Yeah, all 'Stros fans are waiting on pins and needles with this one. With or without Lance, I feel like they can win this series, but it'd be a hell of a lot easier with him. Valdez will pitch better against Boston, I think, and Garcia is a different pitcher at home then on the road. Also, Urquidy hasn't pitched at all in the postseason yet. Greinke, Odorizzi and Javier are all wild cards, but I have to think one of those guys will step up and have a good series.

    I want neither team to win but it would be nice to see Houston lose to Dodgers given they cheated their WS win.

    I don't believe the Dodgers suck or are lame. If they do get a beating from Houston then so be it. As long as they don't cheat.

    I hate to break it to you, but the Dodgers have definitely cheated. Just because they didn't get investigated by MLB because they had a whistleblower former player doesn't mean they weren't stealing signs. And they definitely were using substances to increase spin rates before baseball cracked down on that this season.

    I'm willing to bet every team in baseball has cheated in the last 5-10 years and/or is currently cheating today. It's just a matter to what degree they're cheating and how badly they get caught in the act.
