Once again, baseball is a tricky sport to predict.

If you could look into a crystal ball before the first game of the World Series and learn that Houston Astros ace Gerrit Cole pitched seven innings, while his Washington Nationals counterpart Max Scherzer left the game after five innings, logic would dictate the advantage there would be with the Astros.

The Astros best pitched lost a game? Their second best pitcher might win the next game. It's a game after all. Either way I'll be OK if JA wins the MVP for the series.
