As much as I respect the Houston Astros and the talent they have on their roster, the fact is that this season, the Astros just haven’t felt like the same Astros we’ve gotten used to seeing in recent years. Maybe a lack of technology had something to do with it, or maybe not. But either way, Zack Greinke is starting to fade as his fastball is losing velocity and it’s getting easier for guys to get on base. Kenta Marda goes for the Twins here and in any other year he could’ve been a Cy Young candidate with a 0.75 WHIP and a 2.70 ERA. The Twins have the dubious distinction of losing 16 straight playoff games but I think that ends here as Minnesota makes a statement off of Greinke in game one. Give me Minnesota on the run line as my premium pick for this game.
