Who am I?
I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.
The MLB playoffs chug on to the League Championship Series round, and superstars are emerging. The Los Angeles Dodgers are looking to take their second straight National League pennant and if they do so, it might be behind someone unexpected on opening day. Manny Machado was acquired just after the All Star game, and is paying dividends. During the week (clincher against the Braves, plus first two games against the Brewers), he took over two key games for wins. He finished the 3 games 5-13 (.385), 1 2B, 2 HR, 7 RBI and 3 R. The Dodgers have their hands full with a hot Brewers team, but Machado is looking all the part of the difference between a World Series or not.
