Houston Astros vs Los Angeles Angels. Prediction
Shohei Ahtani is coming off his MVP season, where he won the game like no one else. The Astros came up just short in 2021, losing the World Series in 6 games to the Atlanta Braves but even though they lost their All-Star shortstop Carlos Correa seems poised for yet another run. Although it is difficult to win the game with only two runners on base, it’s not easy to imagine these powerful offenses being kept down for very long. This should be a pick-em. We’re going to make it a double play because the Astros have more juice than us.

Ohtani, who is coming off his best year in his career, takes the ball for the Angels. His overall record was 9-2, with a 3. 18 ERA, 1. 09 WHIP, and striking out 156 haters across 130.1 innings. In his six final appearances Ohtani made four solid starts. He went at least seven innings, and gave up no more than two runs in each of those.
Ohtani was 0-1 in Houston’s two-game series last year. He gave up one run over seven innings in May before a disastrous start in which he allowed six runs in just 3.1 innings. In September, he also surrendered nine earned runs in an innings, a record for the season.
He’s countered by Framber Valdez, who frankly isn’t the Astros’ best pitcher (that honor belongs to Justin Verlander, but he’s still getting up to full speed after missing 2021 because of Tommy John surgery).
Valdez, had a very productive season in his own right, going 11-6 with a 3. 14 ERA, 1. 25 WHIP, and striking out 125 batters in 134.2 innings. He put up those numbers despite missing all of April and making just one start in May, but should he stay healthy this season, he could go 200 innings.
He went 2-0 against the Angels, giving up four runs in 12 combined innings in two starts in September.
Can Astros Reign Supreme in American League West?
For a few years the Astros have been the AL West’s dominant team. Although the Athletics occasionally make a comeback, and the Mariners made a surprising push last year, Houston is still the division to beat.
That will all be tested this year with Los Angeles and Seattle both viable contenders to win the division. However it’s a “we need to see it to believe it” with the Angels, who have regularly disappointed for the better part of a decade, haven’t made the playoffs since 2014, and have won precisely zero playoff games with Mike Trout.
Houston’s roster looks as strong as ever, even without Correa. Jose Altuve and Michael Brantley should fill the six top spots. Yuli Gurriel, Jordan Alvarez (or Alex Bregman), Yuli Gururiel, Yuli Tucker, Jordan Alvarez and Jordan Alvarez will also be in this order. This is enough power to beat anyone on any given day. If they are in the hunt during the summer, don’t be afraid to add another player to the team.
But as for Thursday, there are a lot of men who can count. The key to the game is getting Ohtani from the plate as fast as possible. In this regard, anything less than six innings will be considered a win.
Time for Trout
We are all baseball fans and the truth of the statement in the final section hurts. Mike Trout never wins a postseason championship. He’s made every All-Star team since 2012, has won MVP three times, finished as runner-up four times, and is in the top five on two other occasions.
Last year was the first time he didn’t place top five in a decade and that’s because he was injured for the vast majority of the season, only able to play in 36 games.
The lineup looks good on paper this season. Ohtani is the first, with Trout at No. The top four were completed by Jared Walsh, Anthony Rendon and Anthony Rendon. Other capable hitters Joe Adell as well as David Fletcher and Joe Adell threw in.
It’s a left-handed lineup that should work well against Valdez. However, the Angels have only 3-6 records in their first nine days, and are 2-0 in two of those. So it is hard to predict them being strong.
