    The Astros are a very fun team to check out this year. They're definitely a team I'd like to see go all the way this year.

    They could use some stability in their rotation, though. Very few guys making it to six innings over the last three weeks.

    The Astros already have 9 more wins than they managed in 2013.

    And they have 19 more runs than they had at the beginning of today.

    I'm not sure how the bracketing would work, but I'd predict Indians vs. Astros in the ALCS, and Dodgers vs. Nationals in the NLCS.

    I'd love to see the Tigers or Brewers in there, but I just don't think that'll happen. The Brewers definitely have a shot, but they're still kinda young. But if the Nats do the typical DC Sports second-round exit, maybe we'll see the Brew Crew in there.

    My early predictions are Houston and New York in the AL, Los Angeles and Washington in the NL.

    I could easily see either Cleveland or New York, but Houston is my lock. NL is a little more open, mostly because of Kershaw's history in October.

    Joe Maddon having to go on national television to talk about why the Cubs suck while Yadier Molina hits a home run is the highlight of all the sports I've ever watched.

    The NL Central is ridiculously up for grabs this year. And no matter who wins it, they will very likely be bounced in the first round.

    As much as it pains me to support an LA team, I think Kershaw is possibly the most marketable figure in the sport right now, and he needs a ring.

    "**** the Brewers!" He said as he calmly sipped from the cold Milwaukee Brewers glass he had purchased 2 years ago while visiting his friend @March

    As long as Ryan Braun is a Brewer, that team can sit on a cactus.

    I do love Bob Uecker though.
