After a world of drama in the American League, the World Series is set. It’s hard to argue that the two best teams from each league aren’t represented in this one.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have run right through everyone they’ve faced on their way to the Fall Classic, and Clayton Kershaw is looking like his regular season self this postseason. The Houston Astros bent in a major way against the New York Yankees, getting pushed to seven games and need to win two games at home to advance; they refused to break though, and punched their ticket with a 4-0 win on Saturday night.
The two teams have taken very different approaches to get here. The Astros, who were the laughing stock of the league year after year, managed to break through with 101-wins this season. This comes after they had a string of three seasons between 2011 and 2013 where they lost over 100 games.
Meanwhile, the Dodgers enter with baseballs highest payroll, and most devastating pitching rotation and lineup.
Not in their house!

The World Series will be played with a 2-3-2 format, meaning if the Astros can manage to steal a game at Chavez Ravine in either game one or two, they can wrap up the series in Texas.
They were unable to win a game at Yankee Stadium, though, and there won’t be any drop off in intensity in LA.
