The first and only two teams that have reached the 60 win mark are the Houston Astros and your Los Angeles Dodgers. Even more remarkable is that both achieved this point before the All-Star break. All these teams do is win, and that is why we may be seeing this clash of the titans come late October. Now let’s see how they match-up against each other.
These two teams are very similar in the sense that they are both dominating their respective leagues, yet not getting the media attention as other teams. In the American League, all anybody talks about is the Yankees and their emerging star Aaron Judge.
In the National League, just now are the Dodgers starting to get some more attention, but still, the majority of coverage has been on the Chicago Cubs struggling and Bryce Harper’s Washington Nationals.
So these two teams are somehow flying under-the-radar. Either way, these teams are putting together special seasons. They are similarly getting monster win totals, but they are doing it in different ways. The Astros have been road warriors this season, possessing the best record in MLB away from home. Meanwhile, the Boys in Blue have been riding that Dodger Stadium magic to the best record in the Bigs at home.
If the season ended today and both teams made the World Series, the Dodgers would have home field advantage. Knowing how well Houston plays on the road and how dominant the Dodgers are in Chavez Ravine, this would be an absolutely fantastic series. But without further or do, let’s dive into their position comparison.
