    If we try to sweep the series in Game 1, we'll lose. Tomorrow's game is the only game we can win tomorrow. The rest is for another day.

    That said, While our depth helps us in the season, it helps less in the playoffs because there are more days off. But the biggest difference is something I picked up from Bagwell. He always said he made his living hitting pitcher's mistakes. But we have several players who will hit pitcher's pitches with authority on occasion. Pitches that will drive us crazy because they are off the plate or at least difficult to hit on the edges. In a pitcher's duel, I like our chances.

    I'm not superstitious so I can only see this as retarted. I mean even if I was it's not like this tradition has brought us 3 chips. So it's clearly not working.

    Anyway....Stros in 4

    Welcome to my world. But you won't like it after a few days. Some people need less sleep than others. but uninterrupted sleep keeps you sane. That's why they're coming to take me away ha ha ho ho he he.

    I can’t see us losing this series.
    Phillies have a chance if they take 3/4 with Nola Wheeler but I can’t see them beating us if they split those games.
    Our defense, bullpen, back of rotation, low strikeout/high contact with pop.

    Astros in 6

    I was the first poster in the ALCS thread and look how that turned out. I'm hoping @Castor27 lets me be the first posted in the WS thread for superstitious purposes. Please.

    I’m so excited and anxious right now. Will be so bummed if they blow it but if they win there’s no denying we’re witnessing one of the great dynasties of this sport.

    This is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever seen.

    Tucker you are a moron.

    And you're certainly not having a great post season, so it makes it that much worse.

    It only backfires if he doesn’t show up and we lose.

    It also seems to me they’re taking them lightly.

    Great. I guess they didn't learn from 2019 and 2021.

    That one time in 2017 for Game #2 of the WS when I brought this sign to Dodgers Stadium. Thinking of making another one for Game #2 this year.

    I hope the Astros win because I can’t handle losing another WS. Yes I know there’s more to life and I’m pathetic yada yada

    I'd rather not make the WS than lose it. Get the job done, Stros.
