They are hoping that this year could bring a championship result.The Braves appear to be ahead of schedule as they were not expected to be a playoff team this season. They pulled away from the Philadelphia Phillies in September to gain their first playoff appearance since 2013.The Dodgers will send Hyun-Jin Ryu to the mound in Game 1 against the Braves, and he was solid down the stretch with a 1.50 earned-run average in his last five starts.The Braves have a dangerous lineup that includes Freddie Freeman http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-mike-trout-jersey , Nick Markakis and Ronald Acuna Jr., and a solid pitching staff led by Mike Foltynewicz, Anibal Sanchez and Kevin Gausman.The Cleveland Indians and Houston Astros are both talent-laden teams capable of bashing home runs and scoring in bunches.In many ways, these teams could put on something similar to a tag-team wrestling match when it comes to offensive productivity.Jose Ramirez, Francisco Lindor and Edwin Encarnacion have consistent home-run power and that trio totaled 109 home runs during the regular season.The Astros will counter with Alex Bregman, George Springer and 2017 MVP Jose Altuve. Bregman led the team with 31 home runs, and this team has proven it can get clutch hits and build rallies in the late innings.The Game 1 matchup of Cleveland's Corey Kluber and Houston's Justin Verlander could slow down the potent attacks of both teams.The glamour matchup between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox could end up as the most thrilling of the first round.The Yankees finished the season with 100 victories, but they could not keep up with the explosive Red Sox.The Yankees had some uneven play during the summer as Aaron Boone's team battled injuries, but slugger Aaron Judge and catcher Gary Sanchez have returned to the lineup, and the Yankees are a confident group.The Red Sox won a team-record 108 games and they have had consistent power from J.D. Martinez (43 home runs and 130 runs batted in) along with plenty of spark from lead-off batter and MVP candidate Mookie Betts (32 home runs, 30 stolen bases).While the Red Sox had a memorable regular season, they are hoping that lefty Chris Sale is in top form after a shoulder injury slowed him in the second half of the year. Rookie manager Alex Cora must be concerned about a bullpen that was up-and-down throughout the final two months of the season.PredictionsColorado over Milwaukee in four games.
