Smart money is on CC and the Yankees.  But they have struggled on the road.  

Saw some stat yesterday that showed home vs. road batting average. Something like .020 to .250, it was ridiculous.

And, it looks like it will be a Astros/Dodgers WS. Fine with me.

The idea of a Yankees Dodgers World Series is downright depressing to me. My least favorite team vs the soulless corporate entity with a million titles. There's really no winner for me in that. That's also happened before, what? Eleven times? No thank you. 

 

But an Astros Dodgers World Series? That sounds absolutely AWESOME. It's still my least favorite sports team, but at least it's two long suffering fan bases and two young, deserving teams. It's also a new matchup that could start a great cross league rivalry. This matchup is VERY exciting to me. 

 

Three more outs, Houston. GO GO ASTROS.

YES Astros! Congrats to them, what a great young team and good to see them comeback. We Yankees haters should probably enjoy this while we can though, they’re gonna be good for a while. But for now, we can enjoy this one. 

 

I honestly don't really care who wins at this point, I’d probably rather see the Astros because they were really bad for a while and they’ve got a likable team. But I also wouldn’t mind seeing LA win since they haven’t won since ‘88. Either way, I’m cool.

What an incredible season for the Yankees. The fact that were were even playing in this game is incredible to me. Disappointing to lose, of course, but this one doesn't hurt. 2001, 2003, 2004, even 2010, stung like hell. This? I'm just so damn proud of this team for how they played all year, how exciting they were, how downright fun they were to watch.

 

This team isn't going away any time soon. I can only hope that the 2017 Yankees are like the 2015 Cubs or 1995 Yankees. 

 

I was never ready for this incredible run to end, but we all knew it had to eventually. One of the most fun seasons I've ever had as a Yankee fan. Love this team so much.

Son of a WHORE!!!  They did it!  THEY MADE THE HARRIDGE TROPHY THE REVERSE OF THE SUCKY NEW GILES TROPHY.

 

Actually, no.  They didn't even do that.  They made it the same exact trophy, but with a different logo on it!

Congrats to the Astros for being the first team to win Pennants in both leagues. That's a pretty damn cool & unique accomplishment. 

 

As for the Matchup, really tough one. LA looks like a complete beast right now, but I think Houston had the tougher road here. 

 

And yes, it pisses me off that they made the Harridge & Giles trophies generic pieces of :censored:.

This Astros-Dodgers World Series is a rematch of the 1981 NLDS. Safe to say this is the first time that's ever happened. ;)

Congrats, Astros! What might have been an unwatchable series (for me), has turned into an exciting one. I look forward to it.

Yankees need to do better in the road. What a tearful, tragic end to a great Yankees season.

 

Tearful and tragic? They beat one 100 win team and took another to a game 7. That's quite an accomplishment for a team that most people picked to hover around .500.

I’m thrilled the Astros won, but for the first time in my life, I feel a little sympathy for some of my Yankee fan friends. I’m getting old and weak.
