Regarding the NLCS, I don't have much to say other than, unlike last year, the Cubs simply had nothing left against the Dodgers after just barely squeaking by the Nationals. It's too bad that Vin Scully no longer calls the Dodger games.
I'm hoping that Houston can hang on tonight against New York, although I suspect the Yankees will win Game 7, as the remaining available Astros starters have had zero success against them in this series. In my opinion, for Houston to have ANY chance in a Game 7 situation against New York, they'll have to score early and score often, something that has eluded them throughout this ALCS series!
Of course, Houston has to wrap up tonight's game first! They were leading the Yankees 3-0 at the end of 6, the last time I checked. It's too bad that Justin Verlander can't also pitch Game 7!
