Taking all the way on 3-2 seems to be Correa's vibe

I can't remember the last time the Astros had a clean inning after scoring.

Write it it in your diary

I fear for Cole tonight because Big Papi picked him to be better.. and we know that Big Papi is ALWAYS wrong.

Comments from pundits have less than nothing to do with what's going on on the field.    You can be superstitious all you want when you are playing a game.   But to suggest that comments from a pundit have any effect on what happens in a game is pathetically ignorant.

Just posted this on facebook, but it applies here too:

On top of not being a who's who of umpiring douchebaggery, this is a pretty good crew. I think the worst in this group is Porter, who has been known to have a bit of a short temper, but compared to the usual suspects, he's amazing.

Doug Eddings is an enormous douche bag

Who is left to pitch?

Rondon and ??


If the Astros hadn’t closed out their 6-4 win against the Yankees in the bottom of the ninth, Hinch was going to turn to Héctor Rondón in the top of the 10th. Aside from Rondón, rookie Bryan Abreu was the lone reliever left in the bullpen. Game 4 starter Zack Greinke was in the dugout and Hinch had reached the point of gauging how Greinke felt physically. Cole, seated to his manager’s left for most of the game, lobbied to pitch but was rebuffed because of the potential Game 7.

“He wasn’t going to let me,” Cole said. “I asked him twice during the game.”

Amid the postgame champagne celebration, Hinch joked with Rondón and Abreu that they just avoided throwing the most pitches they’ve ever thrown in their lives.


The Astros’ reward for finishing the ALCS in six? Gerrit Cole in Game 1 of the World Series

It doesn't seem possible but I believe by the end of this series I will hate Brett Gardner even more than I already do.

The home run ball bounced off the giant wall and back on to the field. Yankees leftfielder Brett Gardner picked it up. He saw Houston bullpen catcher Javier Bracamonte walking past him toward the pile of Astros gathering at home plate.

“Here,” Gardner said, handing him the ball. “Take this. You guys are a great team. Now go win the World Series. Represent the American League well.”

Said Bracamonte, “It was so classy. And Aaron Judge gave me a hug and said the same thing. I have so much respect for those guys.”

Bracamonte later gave the ball to an MLB authenticator.


Good Verducci article
