Astros-Indians ALDS Preview and Predictions

The last two American League champions will meet in the ALDS starting today and this series promises to be a good one. The defending World Series champion Houston Astros will take on the team that came within outs of winning the World Series two years ago, the Cleveland Indians. Both teams feature good pitching, but shaky bullpens, along with batters that can bust a game open with one swing of the bat. What’s astonishing is that this series isn’t even the most anticipated, but we’ll get to that in a later post. Nonetheless, while you’re waiting for Red Sox-Yankees, these

Braves-Dodgers NLDS Preview and Predictions

The last time the Braves made the playoffs was 2013. Their opponent? The Los Angeles Dodgers, who won that series 3-1. Fast forward 5 years and these are two totally different teams.

Now that the Wild Card games are out of the way, it’s time to get into the real business. While many people consider the Wild Card games the postseason (and technically it is), it seems a lot like a play in game for the actual postseason. So, while the Rockies beat the Cubs, the Brewers were watching and waiting for the winner. This’ll be a fun series between two somewhat similar teams. Milwaukee has a superior bullpen, while Colorado has better starters. Both teams have great batters like Christian Yelich, Lorenzo Cain, Nolan Arenado, and Charlie Blackmon. With two teams

You Win or You Die: Jaime Lannister

Now, we’re getting to the nitty gritty of the characters. The characters that will pack a punch if they die, that will cause fans to cry and to question the show. These are the characters that are going to be the most divisive, and hardest for me to write. So let’s start with someone that is supposedly going to be in the last episode of the show: Ser Jaime Lannister. Why Jaime will die:┬áJaime’s been through a lot, and he’s an incredibly weaker fighter than he was at the beginning of the show, but he’s still here. In his current
