Nate’s Picks

This is just for conversation sake 10/07/21 MLB Postseason


Winner of the week

For winner of the week give me the Los Angeles Dodgers because they are red hot winning 9 out of their last 10 regular season games. And winning a nail biter against the ST. Louis Cardinals in the Wild Card. I think the Dodgers can continue this hot streak through the NLDS and make it exciting to watch by winning close games over the Giants. 


Loser of the week

For loser of the week give me the Houston Astros. The only way I believe that the Astros can win is by using a trash can and stealing the Chicago White Sox’s pitching signs.The Chicago White Sox’s average 5.2 runs a game while the Astros average 3.8 runs a game. The White Sox’s have a 3.73 ERA and the Astros have 3.76 ERA. 


Upset of the week

For upset of the week give me Los Angeles Dodgers upsetting the The San Francisco Giants in 5. The reason I see the Dodgers upsetting the Giants is because the Dodgers have a better pitching rotation with Walker Buehler, Julio Urias, and Max Scherzer. As for the Giants I think their lack of experience of playing in the postseason will hurt them in this 5 game series. This is why I pick the Dodgers for upset of the week.
