    Yes?

    Remember the Nationals WS when they were down 0-2 and going to Washington?

    Remember the wild Dodgers series or even the Braves series?

    All of these have been very dramatic series, I expect the same here, it would have been nice to sweep them but that clearly is not happening. Oh well.

    Get 1 tomorrow and they have the pressure of defending home field.

    JV has the worst ERA in WS history. He's literally the worse pitcher to ever play in a World Series. It keeps happening over and over.

    it seems like we might be this decades version of the Atlanta Braves of the 90’s. Multiple WS appearances, one championship

    Down 0-1 and down in the 9th to the best relief pitcher in the league in 2017

    I knew in the 3rd inning the Astros were done this game. Their body language screamed uptight. Sad, sad way to start a series

    The Yankees were missing a bunch of guys too though. Injuries are part of sports. Plus Chaz has stepped up at the plate in the postseason. The real issue is Altuve and Yordan.

    Yeah hopefully

    Or you can review the previous 70 years of Houston sports history

    I hope your home never floods again

    The ****in NL East underdog strikes again. That, and JV looking like he forgot how to pitch. Some things are just timeless.

    Terrible stat:

    • Since 2005, Astros have been to the WS 5 times.
    • In those series, the Astros have played approximately 13 home games.
    • 2 in 2005
    • 3 in 2017
    • 4 in 2019
    • 3 in 2021
    • 1 in 2022 (so far)
    • They have 3 wins!!

    Major suckage.

    You try too hard to be someone relevant. That’s why you need to try and act like a savior for attention. You literally come in here with no idea wtf you’re talking about. Just sounding like the Moron you are

    But but but everyone. But but but ok maybe a select few.

    We are seeing why Dusty has never won a WS. And Mancini was Clicks big trade deadline acquisition.

    They lost the series to the Nats. They lost the series to the Braves. They were down 1-0 after one game to the dodgers so thats not worse than right now.

    Don’t be that guy; I got swatted to half court for pointing out that people should be objective and I am scared of the Phillies and all I got was nah you are wrong and all this bravado. If everyone was saying that, why am I being called out for no reason lol?

    JV was pretty bad in the 2017 WS too, huh?

    This guy keeps getting bailed out by the rest of the team. Mariners game 1 he was lucky to have Yordan bail him out.

    As far as I'm concerned Verlander can go to the Dodgers this off season and take Mancini with him.
