World Series Prediction/Guess

October 24, 2017

My desire for a Cubs-Astros World Series unravelled last week. Wasn’t surprised Los Angeles won the National League Pennant. What was shocking was how the Dodgers captured the title: Victory by technical knockout. 

Houston showed us the true meaning of home field advantage. The Yankees didn’t stand a chance playing three games with the magical pinstripes and four with their dull, grey road uniforms. 

So we have an old-school NL West matchup for the World Series. Good fortune will fall upon the Houston Astros and it will occur in six games. 

I’m sure you have seen the 2014 Sports Illustrated cover that declared Houston would be victorious in 2017. Back in 2012, I wrote a piece about the Astros for TheGoodPoint.com. At the time, fans of the team were furious. On top of poor performances on the field, there was a significant contingent of fans unhappy that Houston was moving to the American League. It was also the Astros’ 50th anniversary. 

Amazing how things can change 😉

Enjoy the World Series!

Catching Up

February 23, 2013

Welcome back!

Yes, that was one “hek” of an off-season for the Toronto Blue Jays. This afternoon, they begin their spring training schedule against Detroit. There really is nothing like baseball in February. It helps me forget about the weather here in Toronto.

As things get underway in Florida, here are a few bullet points:

– I know it’s very late, but I like the trade the Jays made to acquire R.A. Dickey. Prospects are hit and miss. They also make great trade bait. All trades are gambles. However, it’s better to give up someone who has potential (d’Arnaud) for someone who’s proven (Dickey) than the opposite.

– During the off-season, I wrote a few baseball pieces for TheGoodPoint.com. I reviewed Kelly Gruber’s autobiographypaid homage to Tom Cheek, posted my favourite baseball videos on YouTube and shared some spring training thoughts.

A new season of DNJT will begin on March 28. Mark it down on your calanders…..please.

– Finally, saw this video on Big League Stew and had to post it. It’s well-worth your time.
