    That dude is a spark plug! He looks like he is going 90 mph when he is standing still. He is one hell of a motivated little fella!

    I've honestly never seen the Astros play this poorly in the past few years. I maintain that it all comes down to pitching. When the pitchers can't do their job, everyone else has to play differently. Hitters are having to be more aggressive, causing more strikeouts. Fielders are having to take more chances to try and stop the bleeding. Hell, Altuve has made more errors this series than he has the whole season.

    Man, the A's swept them on sep 24th, 25th, and 26th. It was embarrassing. Must have had their buzzers malfunctioning.

    It's amazing how much more difficult the playoffs are when you can't cheat.

    Meh, it isn't about cheating. They rocked the White Sox last week, home and away. Houston does better on the road than at home, and none of their stats are out of line.

    My favorite plarer - Only 2 have had a life time batting averages this high since the early 1900'; Ted Williams & Tony Gwynn. Tony was 3 hits shy of .400 thanks to the strike in 94'.

    My grandparents, mom, and one aunt were from Brooklyn. It was HUGE when they left. They were completely gutted. My grandfather I remember when I was in high school told me he never watched another game.

    *Wanted to add. My mom had a huge crush on Pee Wee Reese.

    In better news, the Braves seem to be bringing it to the west coast Yankees right now.

    IF the WS is Astros vs Barves it sure will be two of the hottest ball teams around, with hitting galore.

    I have no particular liking for either team, but I always enjoy good baseball.

    Braves got one in LA, that was huge. While I hope they close it out tonight, I suspect we'll be taking the series back to Atlanta. If we win it, the question will be whether or not to bring Soler off the COVID list to play. He's been a huge help, but Rosario and Pederson are on fire right now.

    How odd, Mary Hart is not sitting in her seat behind home plate at tonight's dodgers game!?!?
