Counsell: Miley to start for Brewers in Game 3

Click for larger version

That's one way to describe this year's postseason.

It was just two years ago where we witnessed the cubs break "Bambinos Curse" and win the world series. In the NL, the Brewers will play the Rockies while the Dodgers square off against the Braves. None of them have played in an NLDS since Atlanta in 2013. The National League Division Series opener will air on FS1. These teams have met since Houston's World Series victory last season.

Game 2 is Saturday in Houston.

This would be the 12th World Series meeting between these old rivals, but the first since 1981.

After Last years devastating loss to the Astros in game 7 of the ALCS the Yankees hit the jackpot this past offseason.

The Red Sox built an early lead, going up 3-0 in the first inning on Martinez's home run, and 5-0 after three in front of their ecstatic fans at Fenway Park. Rockies manager Bud Black spent some of his playing days with the Indians when he was a pitcher. Don't expect Joe Maddon's Cubs to lose back-to-back games at home in Wrigley Field.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell says left-hander Wade Miley will likely start Game 3 of the NL Division Series against the Colorado Rockies.

The baby who will not forget Melania Trump's hug
Earlier this year, President Donald Trump reportedly referred to some African nations, and Haiti, as " shithole countries ". Mrs Trump also donated hampers and gifts to mothers and children at the Child Welfare Clinic of the Hospital.

Moreover, all the eyes are on the Houston Astros. Brewers reliever Josh Hader was acquired from Houston in the 2015 deal that sent Carlos Gomez and Mike Fiers to the Astros. They clinched the AL West Sep.

However, the Dodgers opponents the Milwaukee Brewers are no pushover.

Colorado's lone World Series appearance came in 2007, when the Rockies were swept by Boston. The survivor goes onto Fenway Park to face the Red Sox. They'll all be looking to climb over the defending National League champion Dodgers.

The Boston Red Sox were the best team throughout the regular season, though not a team without holes. The last time the top seed in each league made it to the World Series was in 2013, when Boston beat St. Louis. A Yankees-Red Sox ALDS is always something to be celebrated as well, while the Indians look to get past the ALDS after losing it to the Yankees in five games a year ago.

Prediction: Astros win in five games. The Braves won the first three matchups, then the Astros took the next two.

National League Wild Card Game: Colorado Rockies vs Chicago Cubs on October 2.

Prediction: Oakland 3, NY 2. While both teams bring major bullpen questions into the series, the Dodgers unquestionably have two of the best arms in baseball: Clayton Kershaw and soon-to-be-household-name rookie Walker Buehler to push them to the next round.
