In their "Playoff Prognostication" The Athletic has 9 writers, editors and contributors giving their bracket choices, and every single one has the Astros winning.  The only question is whether or not it's the Dodgers playing the part of the Buffalo Bills, or the Cards taking the drubbing.

What could go wrong?

Anyway, I agree.  Here's my bracket:

AL Wild Card
Oakland Athletics

NL Wild Card
Milwaukee Brewers

ALDS Matchup 1
Minnesota Twins

ALDS Matchup 2
Houston Astros

NLDS Matchup 1
St. Louis Cardinals

NLDS Matchup 2
Los Angeles Dodgers

Houston Astros

St. Louis Cardinals

World Series Winner: Houston Astros

My bracket was busted by the end of the first wildcard game.  That was a good thing, cause it saved me the trouble of figuring out what I was going to do with the $250,000 prize money.  However only fair to point out that my WS matchup is still very much alive.

In a thread I posted only the Astros and Dodgers have the pitching to go all the way. But anything can happen in any one series. If the Astros lose my two teams with the pitching to go all the way are gone. Some team might slug their way to a title.
