Could I finally get my dream matchup in the World Series? I thought I had a shot at it last season, but fate conspired against both of my teams.

Yes, the matchup I yearn for is the New York Yankees vs. the Houston Astros. Not only could I see my favorite team (NYY,) but I could see them in the home of my favorite National League team (HOU,) AND half of the games would be played in my home city!!! That would mean that hell or high water, I would find a way to attend a World Series game.

Hey… I know there are a boatload of innings to play and the matchup is a longshot – but many sportswriters are picking Houston to win it all and half of the rest are picking the Yankees… who know?
