The Sports Report 11/2
The MLB playoffs are in full swing as the postseason is down to the final two teams: The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros. The Astros defeated the New York Yankees in a dramatic seven game series a few weekends ago while the Dodgers handily beat the Chicago Cubs a few weeks ago as well. Many Fairview students are passionate fans and have strong takes over what will go down in the World Series.
“I think the Dodgers are really solid this year,” said Ben Daecher, a pitcher for the Fairview baseball team. “They have been one of the best teams all season long and will continue their dominance in the playoffs. I didn’t believe in them at first because they have a track record of losing in the postseason. However, this year they look incredibly solid. I think they will beat the Astros. It will be a good series but the Dodgers will come out on top.”
Another student has another strong take “Unlike what most people think, I think the Astros will win the World Series,” said fellow Fairview baseball player Kyle Komarnitsky. “The Dodgers have been great all season but I think the Astros will be the better team when it matters most. I think it will be a great series and the Astros will win.”
“I don’t know who will win but I know it will be a great series” says Daecher.
