If you like starting pitching, this is the series for you. Looks like the following will be the first 3 matchups:
Game 1: Scherzer vs. Cole
Game 2: Strasburg vs. Verlander
Game 3: Greinke vs. Corbin
I think an under the radar thing to look at is Greinke being able to bat in game 3. He is a very good hitter for a pitcher and this may play a big role in the game. I’ll call starting pitching a wash, but believe the Astros have the advantage in hitting, defense, bullpen, coaching, experience, and an overall better team. Excited for Tuesday! Astros in 6!
