Both offenses are solid, with the Dodgers relying on guys like Adrian Gonzalez, Yasiel Puig, Carl Crawford and Hanley Ramirez. On the other side, the Cardinals have sluggers like catcher Yadier Molina and Carlos Beltran, one of the greatest postseason hitters of all time.
Unfortunately for the Cardinals, they'll still be without Allen Craig, their All-Star first baseman. Still, their overall pitching rotation should be a bit better than the Dodgers, who don't have a lot of dependable arms beyond Kershaw and Greinke. The Cardinals will have enough pitching that they'll be able to relegate Shelby Miller to the bullpen, despite his mastery this season as a starting pitcher.
I think the Dodgers will win at least one of the first two games in St. Louis (possibly both), and then 1 or 2 of the games back home in LA. When all is said and done, I believe the Dodgers' 1-2 punch of Kershaw and Greinke will be too much for the Cardinals to handle.
My prediction: Dodgers in 6.
