Jake triples handsomely to lead off the ninth.
He breezed him, one more time!

Tucker needs to get his situational stuff cleaned up.

Not sure I want the Astros to face either of those teams.

Those two teams are I think clearly more dangerous than either the Yankees or the Twins. Especially in a five game series.

I don't want to offend anyone, but I expect the divisional series to be the most challenging series they play if they end up playing more than the one.

I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, torture of Bud Selig.

They both do in a 5 game series.  Bring your A-game or go home.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

Me too. This is going to go down as one of the historically great baseball teams. They've done it all year without drama, just sitting astride the league and dominating. They are a mill efficiently converting opposing payrolls into losses.

Not fear.  Nerves is a better word.

What was it they quoted in Astroball?   Usually not more than a 60-40 split.
