The National League Championship will get underway tonight as the Los Angeles Dodgers visit the St. Louis Cardinals at 8:37 p.m.
The Detroit Tigers knocked out the Oakland A’s in Game 5 of the American League Division Series last night, so Detroit will visit Fenway Park tomorrow night to kick off the AL Championship Series.
Zach Greinke will start Game 1 for the Dodgers, whose lineup has gotten stronger over the last two seasons with the additions of Hanley Ramirez, Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez and Yasiel Puig.
The Cardinals have made the playoffs in both years since they lost Albert Pujols. Adam Wainwright and rookie Matt Wacha have solidified the Cards’ starting rotation.
Cleveland Indians fans know exactly how good the Detroit Tigers are. Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander give the Tigers a dominant 1-2 punch in the starting rotation to go with sluggers Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder.
Boston bounced back nicely after jettisoning Crawford and Gonzalez to the Dodgers. Jon Lester has the best ERA in the American League, and he will start Game 1. Clay Bucholz and Jake Peavy also bring veteran leadership to the Boston staff. David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia and Jacoby Ellsbury are still leading the Red Sox offense.
Predictions: Dodgers and Red Sox advance to the World Series.
