    Word got out that you're serving 20 years to life and you won't have internet access.

    go to Reddit MLB streams and I would imagine there will be plenty of high-quality streams. There are always great ones during the regular season.

    So the Patriots play Thursday night. Didn't know that. Probably factored into giving us the day games on Thurs and Fri. Though the point is there shouldn't be weekday afternoon playoff baseball for any team.

    Yeah, sucks for us, but MLB seems to have done a good job avoiding all the NFL games for all these teams, at least on the AL side.

    True, though I'm sure we'll get tired of the Boston-focused storylines quickly also. Pedroia's grit, Boston's postseason success over the last ~15 years, even Papi no longer being on the team will somehow be in our face.

    That said, I do think the national spotlight has been favorable to the Astros as well...especially with what Verlander has been doing. They'll be kind to Altuve and Correa. Hoping Marwin gets some shine

    I'm so nervous and anxious. I think this is going to be a really good series, and I'm just hoping that we emerge victorious.

    Would be pretty amazing if we were fortunate enough to beat the Red Sox, Yankees, and then the Dodgers; the top 3 payrolls in the league. Not trying to get ahead of myself, let's just start by stealing one away from Sale tomorrow!

    I saw a guy with a Red Sox shirt on today at the gas station. I said "I don't like that shirt, man. " He looked at me funny. **** Boston.

    Local driver at my company is from Boston. I told him today when he's in my office his hat needs to stay in the truck.

    I am going with Astros in five. I'm most worried about Chris Sale and the Astros bullpen. The Astros have to get a quick jump in the first two games at home.

    They put JJ Watt on the 25-man roster for good luck.

    I'm chillin.

    Try to enjoy each day without wishing it was quickly finished because you're anticipating future happenings.

    Enjoy the journey as much as possible.

    Playoff baseball, nothing better. So much juice for every pitch.

    Absolute night and day from the laid back regular season.

    Based on the regular season game thread if an Astros pitcher even allows a run this thread is going to explode.
