As for the original subject here, DeGrom, he's going tonight against the Cubs, and they've had some hitters who've had some success against him:

Bryant 6 for 17 with 2 HRs, Rizzo 10 for 23 w/a HR, Hayward .333 (9 for 27) and Jose Lobaton 4 for 7.

DeGrom pitched 3 innings 8 strikeouts. 1 flyball . Taken out with sore shoulder. Did not start the 4th inning.

And yet another arm injury in the velocity obsessed world of MLB.

Might work out for your claim at about the same rate a 7-5 shot wins, but the cumulative chances of the WSox (11.11), Mets (10.0), Yanks (9.09), and Rays (6.67) have a 1.11% edge. Throw in the Stros for a 7.36% edge, from numbers crunchers who don't like to lose.
Cards 15th win in a row eliminates Padres.

If I remember right, the Astros were the favorites to win the AL pennant late in May when you bet them. Regardless of my opinion at that time whether it was an overlay or not, it was considered by you to be a good bet and it had a good outcome. I think you are entitled to brag. You called it. Well done!!

Their pitching has stepped it up since losing McCullers Jr.
Their hitting is solid from top to bottom, seldom seen on a MLB team...ever.
Never thought I'd forgive after the scandal. Swore I was done even watching. Apparently time heals more than I thought. Also, only a few remain from the 2017 roster.
