Next up for the Astros: Game 1 against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night. Los Angeles opened as a narrow favorite, but Verlander, the ALCS MVP , and fellow Houston ace Dallas Keuchel will have plenty of rest before the World Series begins at sweltering Dodger Stadium. “I love our personality,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said.“We have the right amount of fun, the right amount of seriousness, the right amount of perspective when we need it. This is a very, very unique group.
