I'm loving it. If they keep playing like this they can beat any team out there.

I'm a Texas Rangers fan but gotta love how the Astros have put it all together. Hope they win it all.

Isn't odd how none of the success of the Texas Rangers was attributed to Nolan Ryan.
Now look at the Astro's after be joined the organization.
He must be really lucky and join in at the right time. ;-)

...and they just scored 3 in the first inning at Boston. The announcers said the game isn't even sold out, so it sounds like the Sox fans have already given up.

It helps if your son is the president of the club.

Last I saw, that's all the runs Houston scored too. Sox were trouncing them in the 7th 7-3. :(

A good win for them and they move on to the next round.
Bad news for the Texans tho..lost JJ Watts and Mercilus for the season.

Cubs, Cubs, Cubs, cubbies!!!
Only to save face, as I went out on a limb last year and called them a Lead Pipe Cinch to go back to back.
They've been pretty disappointing in the regular season this year.... but hope is still alive.

Current World Series Odds
Dodgers 1.95 - 1
Astros 2.25 - 1
Yankees 3.75 - 1
cubbies 3.75 - 1
