My World Series Predictions

The Dodgers are facing the  Astros in this year’s world series and I know it going to be a good one.

The World Series starts on Tuesday night, where you can watch the game on Fox, and before it starts I wanted to make my predictions, and add a few opinions in their.

My Prediction

Dodgers in 6 Games

The Dodgers are rested and ready. They finished the summer with baseballs best record and have gotten the job done this postseason. Also, I’m not so much of a baseball expert, but according to some ESPN experts, they picked the Dodgers to win.

Who I Want To Win

I want the Dodgers to win, not because I’m a Dodgers fan ( I’m a Tigers fan) but because their owner is a Michigan State Alumni (Magic Johnson) who lead MSU to the ’79 NCAAM championship where MSU won.

If I can root for MSU in any way, I always do!

Pro Bowl Offensive Tackle, Joe Thomas Out For Season

The Browns Pro Bowl Offensive tackle, Joe Thomas, will be out for the rest of the season after suffering a torn left triceps during Sunday’s game against the Titans. Thomas injury happened late in the game and it was announced Monday after an MRI that he will be out for the season.

The 10-time pro bowler has been incredibly durable. He hasn’t missed a snap since he first came into the league in 2007… That’s 10,363 straight snaps.

Joe Thomas has more than just 10 thousand straight snaps, he’s a 10x pro bowler, a 7x first team all-pro, and a 2x second team all-pro.

At this point, the Browns need everything they can get. This will definitely be a big loss for their offensive line.

 

Curry, Durant Ejected Late In Game Against Grizzlies

Warriors guard, Stephen Curry, and Warriors forward, Kevin Durant were both ejected late in Saturday nights game against Memphis.

The 2 time MVP, Stephen Curry was ejected for throwing his mouth Gaurd after he took some contact and there was no call. The ref assumed he was throwing his mouth guard at him so he ejected Curry right away. Durant quickly went to the ref and said some words before getting ejected.

When Curry was asked about the incident, Curry was quick to answer to ESPN with “I didn’t throw my mouthpiece at the ref, I got better aim than that. I threw it out of frustration.”

Curry finished the game with 37 points and tweeted after the game about the incident:

Dusty Baker Won’t Be Back In Washington

The Nationals announced on Friday that Dusty Baker will not be back as a manager in Washington.

The Nationals let Baker go after he lead them to the playoffs in his two years at manager but failed to win a series back to back years.

He finished with a .593 winning percentage going 192-132. His winning percentage was the best by a Washington Manager in Nationals history.

The team wrote in a letter saying  “He is one of the true gentlemen in our sport, and we thank him for the successes that we enjoyed together over the last two years. We wish him nothing but the best going forward.”

Bakers contract was ending at the end of the season along with some of the other coaches on the Nationals roster.

Kansas City Takes Second Straight Loss With Raiders Game Winning Touchdown

The Kansas City Chiefs started off the 2017 season with a 5-0 record, since then they’ve lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers and lost their second game last night to the Raiders.

Both Derek Carr and Alex Smith had great games after they both threw 3 touchdowns each and 0 interceptions. Wider Reciever, Amari Cooper was unstoppable last night and that was a big game changer as he caught 11 passes for 210 yards along with two touchdowns.

It was a close most of the game but coming into the 4th quarter, The Chiefs had a two-score lead at 30-21. Toward the beginning of the fourth, the Raiders added another field goal to make the score 24-30 with the Chief winning.

It came down to the last few seconds… The Raiders were down 30-24 but had the ball at the two-yard line. Derek Carr threw a quick two-yard pass to Michael Crabtree for a touchdown to make the score 30-30 as time expired. The Raiders kicker finished the game by making the PAT. 31-30 Raiders.

Video: Eminem Welcomes The Pistons Back To Detroit

The Detroit Rapper, Eminem, was at the Detroit Pistons Little Ceasers Arena Debut after the Pistons spent almost 40 years playing in the suburbs of Detroit.

Eminem was given the mic, for a pre-game speech and had a chance to say something to all the Pistons Fans. Eminem Hyped up Detroit by saying  “Detroit, welcome them back for the first time in over 40 years to our city, to my city, to your city! Make some noise for the Detroit Pistons. Let’s go!”

Big Sean was also at the game, who got to hang out with Eminem where they got a chance to get their picture taken:

NFL Week 7 Fantasy, Who Should You Start? Quaterbacks

NFL Quarterbacks To Start

Deshaun Watson

The Rookie has been playing outstanding as he had three touchdowns in Sunday’s game against the Browns. Watson is in the race for ROY with Kareem Hunt and I would for sure start him.

Marcus Mariota

Marcus Mariota and the Titans face the Browns, whose defense hasnt been so good, which means Mariota will have his chance to bounce back from his injury and be able to put up some numbers.

Carson Wentz

Carson has been playing like an MVP candidate and I wouldn’t be surprised if he Keeps this up. As a fantasy owner, I would be happy to start him.

Top 10 NFL Teams- Week 7 NFL Power Rankings

1- Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles have been one of the top teams the past few weeks and after beating the Panthers, they look like the top spot to me.

2- Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs took their first loss against the Steelers this past week but I believe they will bounce back this week.

3- Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers have been a little inconsistent this year, but after they beat the number one offense in the NFL, I think they deserve to be at least a top 5 team.

4- Carolina Panthers

The Panthers stayed close to the Eagles but couldn’t beat them as Cam Newton Struggled with his passing.

5-Minnesota Vikings

This may be a little high for Minnesota, but although they beat the Packers without Rodgers, the Vikings still played pretty well.

6- New England Patriots

The Patriots beat the Jets, who have been better than everybody thought, in a very close game. Tom Brady lead them to a 24-17 win to make them 4-2.

7- Los Angeles Rams

The Rams may be serious in their new city, as they have gone 4-2. At first, I doubted them but now I have some confidence them.

8-Green Bay Packers

The Packers chances to make the playoffs have gone down as they lost starting QB, Aaron Rodgers due to an Injury. The Packers are now in the hands of Brett Hundley.

9- Seattle Seahawks

Bye.

10-New Orleans Saints

The Saints beat my Lions in a pretty high scoring game. They Scored 52 points but almost allowed a Lions comeback. I’m not sure if the Saints are actually “good” yet but well see after this weeks game.
