Yesterday we predicted that Clayton Kershaw and Kyle Hendricks would engage in a pitcher's duel, resulting in a 2-1 victory for the Dodgers over the Cubs. Indeed there was a pitcher's duel and the Dodgers won, 1-0. This brings our post-season prediction record for 2016 to 11-8.
For today's game we'll predict more of a high-scoring affair won by the Indians 9-7. Trevor Bauer will fan nine in five innings but give up three homers.
A reader asked Friday about Arizona Fall League coverage. The AFL got going last week and yes we will cover it: we have a new writer, Taylor Rocha, who will be leading our AFL coverage for us starting this week. I'll also be contributing and of course everyone should feel free to discuss AFL events here in the daily discussion thread.
