    How luxurious it is to be an Astros fan. We get to rest/prepare with our barely taxed bullpen while the Yanks/RS have at least two more (hopefully taxing) games left.

    Doesn't really matter. This team is in full on champion mode.

    Let them play and get the media slobbering. We'll clean up whatever is left.

    Yankees I guess for home field? Who has the better pitching. Seems like we didn’t do well against Severino this year if I recall.

    Sox for me just because I hate the Yanks more.
    Either way go Stros!

    I say Yankees cuz it'd be great to carry these good vibes right into MMP. Either way I like our chances!

    Yankees. Every win against the Yankees is a thing of beauty.

    Each matchup has its pros and cons, but I think we beat either in < 7 games.

    We faired better during the regular season vs BOS, but we didn't play NY after our bullpen upgrades. We get home-field vs NY, but the Bronx hasn't served us well.

    This is a great question. Looking through both of their rosters, my opinion is that the Yankees are a deeper and more talented team. I'd prefer facing the Red Sox.

    Yankees. Have homefield and get to avoid JD and Betts

    Boston. Otherwise, it means the Yanks won their ALDS series. Cant have that at all. All that a side, I think the Yankees could give us more trouble.

    Both are elite teams. I'd go with Yanks just for the home field advantage.

    I would honestly love to become the Yankees biggest nemasis of the late 2010's to early 2020's.
