Baseball Playoffs

first_imgWho is your favorite baseball team still playing in the 2018 playoffs?  In the National League the Milwaukee Brewers will be facing the Los Angeles Dodgers.  I would imagine the Brewers will be a slight favorite based on their regular season win total and the way they handled the Colorado Rockies in the first round.In the American League the defending champion Houston Astros will face the Boston Red Sox.  Boston had the most wins in major league baseball this year and should be the favorite in this series.I really don’t have a team that I am rooting for since the Cubs were defeated in the Wild Card game.  I don’t really like either of the national league teams left and never have been an American League fan.  I guess I will concentrate on football.last_img
