Bottom of the 7th. two outs, Astros lead 4-0 in game 7. Yankees will eat shit, then go the fuck back to the Bronx.

The BIG show will be a battle of the best in the west. Texas v Dodgers!

The 2017 Yankees were more of a baseball team you could actually like with some
great young talent and a team that can only get better. Gone are all the overpaid
superstars like A-Rod. Like I say when the Mariners aren't playing you got to like
another team....temporarily and I was sort of hoping the Yankees might the win.
Mariners/Astros played 19-games during the regular season and Astros are tough.
Real easy for me to switch my dial to the Astros to be the AL team in the 2017 World Serious.
Jose Altuve waiting his whole life to be in the World Serious and he's going to be MVP.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are also very very good. This could be a World Serious for the ages.
No way can I root for the Dodgers so the Houston Astros take this WS and ease the pain from
hurricane Harvey for many Texans temporarily.

"The Baby Bull" Jose a Taurus. Probly the smallest baseball player in MLB and yet
a bat that can hit anything anywhere anytime. Then once on base is another problem.
Some games you cant get him out. Then plays 2nd base at a very high level. Be looking
forward to the Clayton Kershaw vs Jose Altuve AB's.

It's not the first time, nor the last time we'll witness a west v east series. But it's really sweet NOT to have the Yankees be the dominant AL team in it. Texas Astros v Los Angeles Dodgers.

Hope it goes all the way! Seven games! A Real classic series!

The Houston Astros when they first joined the AL in 2013 lost a 100 games.
Remember that year Mariners vs Astros and the idea that the M's would
certainly take advantage of the hapless Astros but for some reason that dint
happen instead the Astros have become the number one pain in the ass team
for the Mariners. Mr Snippy suggested this could be a "NLCS" serious but those
old Astros memories from the Astrodome years are just that. The Houston Astros
are for sure an American League team now. No DH the first 2 games in LA and the
last 2 games in LA. They are saying now game 1 of the World Serious will be the
hottest weather ever. 102F in LA Monday. Thinking first pitch Tuesday it will be 97F.

Fuck a minor league DH rule in the majors.

The NFL could try having flag football in 16 cities.

I think the 2017 World Serious was one for the ages just like I said before the WS started
right down to how Houston would be without the DH games 6 and 7. To me the difference
was how the Astros pitching did. Throughout the 7-game serious the Astro had to make use
of the other starting pitchers not included with the "big 3 starters" and turn them into
"long relievers" and they did a fantastic job. Very happy for George Springer getting the WS MVP
with Altuve a close 2nd. Justin Verlander pitched great in the post-season and gets a WS ring
just like he planned agreeing to the trade to the Astros. Astros have to wait 55 years for first
World Serious Championship. Seattle Mariners in 2018 will be 41 years and they have to find
a way to beat these Astros if they want to be in 1st place . Happy the Astros won it and Houston
is happy they won it.

Snippy saw his first MLB game in the AstroDome over 50 years ago between the Astros and Snippy's beloved Cardinals.

Springer is a well-deserved MVP. This Series goes down in history with 2003 in Snippy's memory bank.
