... these Astros are not only good, they seem like really good guys, easy to root for

 

Welp,  the Astros PR department pretty much put an end to that.  

 

Not it sure what the off field nonsense looks like if you are in the Houston media market...  but from here the organization has suddenly become easy to root against.  

 

 

On field:  I sure did not expect 9 runs last night.

I thought it was a great game to start the series. There was drama. Threaats most innings. Good hitting. Good pitching out of jams. Tough plays made and not made.  Didnt hurt that my team won, though I fear Zimmerman may well retire is they win the series. His play in this postseason has been huge as was that blast in the second last night. Steadied the ship and they continued to battle as they have. Soto's well that was a manshot!

As I don't follow the Stro's too closely, it shows.  I had no idea about Osuma.  Cole and Altuve seem like good guys, I know of Cole from when he was a Pirate.

Another fun game!  (though the final score doesn't really indicate it.)

The fans are making the news as much as the players.  Women flashing the pitchers.  Guy holding a beer in each hand still managed to catch a foul ball without dropping or spilling his beer.  And now Astros fans are saying that Scherzer was faking his injury so he'd be available in Houston.  An Astro official got fired for jeering at women reporters.  And the woman Yankee announcer ain't watching any of the Series because she says the Astros lied.  What a game.

JV can't win a World series game, kinda funny.

I think it's his wife's fault.  She needs to get back of home plate and flash him, like those Washington women did for Cole.

That might work. You should have let her know, the viewership would have set a record.

The visiting team won every game.  Congrats Nats.

I did not follow very closely, but seeing the Nats win was bittersweet. You see, they were the Montreal Expos that I had invested so much emotion into long ago.
