OT - 2017 Astros
Board is kind of dead right now but here's a topic that might be worth talking about. The 2017 Astros - will they win the World Series and give the city of Houston its first-ever professional baseball title?

Not unless they get their pitching staightened out and/or the Dodgers have some major hiccups.

Dodgers Ace just went on DL.

If we get all our guys back, we'll have a formidable team; pitching, defense, and hitting.

Well, I'd call that a hiccup. Remains to be seen if it's minor or major for the Dodgers.

The Astros still need to add a #2 starter. Keuchel will be fine, but McCullers is very young and even when healthy has not been able to work deep into games. I would love to see us pickup Yu Darvish as a 3-month rental.

Better for the Dodgers that he's out now instead of his usual disappearance during the postseason.

That one stung a bit.

RE: OT - 2017 Astros
If the Astros don't make a trade for a pitcher of some type before August 1st, they should be blasted by the local media. In 1998, they made a trade for Randy Johnson right before the trade deadline (didn't work as they still lost the NLDS). In 2004, they got Carlos Beltran in June. In 2005, they didn't really do anything and even though they still made their one and only World Series (losing 4-0 to the White Sox), that inactivity probably cost Tim Purpura his GM job after a brief 2-year stint.

1 starting pitcher and 1 reliever is what they need as a minimum I'd say.

And BTW, Kershaw's injury could be huge in determining home field advantage for the World Series (which now goes to the team with the best regular season record). So if it's LA vs. Houston, Kershaw's injury might have just given Houston the home field advantage.

Given the Astros' road success, I'm not so sure a Houston home field advantage is that much of an advantage.
