Shouldn’t there be an Astros thread here?
« on: October 24, 2017, 11:19:10 AM »
I mean, they’re in the WS for only the second time.  I may be a Cards fan, but it’s better luck next year for us and meanwhile I’d love to see Houston win the series.

Isn’t nearly everyone here cheering for Altuve, Keuchel, and company??

would be better if the Stros and Cards were still rivals

Shiner,

Were you born in Texas or Cali?

WTF?

Neither... And I'm a Rangers fan, not a 'stros fan.  The idea of the Astros winning a world series before the Rangers do is not very palatable to me.

I'm not a MLB fan at all, but I'd be fine with the Astros winning.  Would make plenty of my friends happy.

Huckleberry is a yankee from the corrupted wasteland north of Georgetown where Arkies and Okies lumber about and foul the atmosphere.

As for the Stros, we're not all jizzy like KC fans and Card fans.  We don't need a thread.  The Stros are in our hearts.

Besides.  There's no point in incurring the wrath of the evil capricious baseball gods.

I'm Astros all the way.  There were no Rangers when I was a lad.  So when the Rangers came around I still had a heart for the Astros.

I'm just afraid the Dodgers have more horses..

Indeed they do.  We just have Verlander.

But we do have an amazing little pony named Altuve.

Dodgers have better pitching overall, but the second half of their lineup is pretty crummy.  Astros overall are more balanced - best hitting team in baseball, two amazing starters and a great closer.  I’m saying Stros in 6, and since I’m not a fan, that poses no ECBG risk.

Its not the starters that make the diff between the Astros and the Dodgers

Its the relievers

The dodgers have way more and better relievers

I think to win the series the Astros will have to get their runs early and just hope to hang on

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

One thing for certain is the Astros must win at least one in LA.

With that in mind, any win for Houston in LA is gold.  For me, it gives extra enthusiasm for tonight's game.  It's only one out of 7, but a win for Houston would be big.
