World Series Predictions

Well, after reviewing the stats listed below, I am not feeling very optimistic about the Astros' chances in the World Series. I picked the Angels and Cards to get to the Series, though, so what do I know? Little did I know that pretty-boy Mulder would fold like a tent under the bright lights. My biggest concern is that the Sox have a decent history against both Pettitte and Clemens, and the Astros batters have not faced the Sox red-hot pitchers, which typically does not bode well for their offense. You've seen how the computer sees the Series playing out, so here's my prediction:

Game 1: Contreras shuts down Astros with ease - White Sox 4, Astros 0 (Chicago leads 1-0)
Game 2: Astros get to Buerhle early and Pettitte returns to form - Astros 5, White Sox 3 (Tied 1-1)
Game 3: Oswalt continues his October dominance in front of the loudest crowd in World Series history: Astros 2, White Sox 1 (Astros lead 2-1)
Game 4: Backe is good, but Garland is better - White Sox 4, Astros 3 (Tied 2-2)
Game 5: Clemens pitches the best game of his postseason career - Astros 2, White Sox 0 (Astros lead 3-2)
Game 6: Buerhle is masterful, and Konerko hits 2 HR off Pettitte - White Sox 6, Astros 1 (Tied 3-3)
Game 7: Roy O adds a World Series MVP to his crowded mantle, going the distance and clinching the World Series for the Astros - Astros 4, White Sox 1 (Astros win series 4-3)
