It's so nice having my team (Astros) in the playoffs again.  Any predictions for the World Series?  I hope we make it, but I know Cleveland is going to be a beast in the ALCS.

Re: October baseball, anyone?

  • Congrats on the Astros playing October baseball!  There's nothing more exciting.  I've always loved the DS since it's short for a playoff series.

    Agreed I could see Cleveland go very far- they deserve a WS win.  I'd also be fine with Washington since they're representing our division.  I'm over LA (dynasties are boring) but one of my favorite Mets was traded to them a few months ago, so if they advance I'll be okay.

    I'm rooting hardest for whichever team is playing the Yankees.  >:)

  • Yankee fan here, and I fully expect that they'll be done after tonight's game. I'm still mad at Joe Girardi for what happened in last night's game. But in all honesty, I am so proud of the team for being so much better this season than anyone expected, so while nobody likes seeing their team lose in the playoffs, I still think this was a great year for the Yankees regardless. 

    @MobKaz, seeing the Cubs finally win it all last year was truly one of the best experiences I've ever had as a baseball fan. I think that's one of the greatest World Series any of us will ever see. 
    Game 4 baby!!

    Oof.  I had the displeasure of attending a Browns game yesterday afternoon so I was pretty incommunicado all day. It was lovely to hear all the "Let's Go Tribe" chants on the way out of the game though, ha!

    They are definitely testing my cardiac health as well!  Thank goodness this game was early enough that I can simmer down before lights out!

    Astros/Cubs for the Series?

    Yeah, it's a good thing I did my nails this weekend, because I would've chewed them all off by now otherwise!  I'm so thankful we had the day off from school so I could watch it!!

    We have the Yankees / Indians game on.  I'm conflicted ... I have a lot of friends in Cleveland and I want them to be happy.  But I'd rather face the Yankees.

    MRDCle , how are you holding up?

  • @holyguacamole79 things are not good for me today, ha. I think we can take it at home tomorrow though.  Pretty confident. Kluber got all his yayas out on Friday. We got this.
  • Game 5 Wednesday night!!!!!!!
    OMG!   Last night was AMAZING!   And it was between innings when the Bears/Vikings game entered the half so we could watch The Last Jedi trailer.

    @MRDCle, { hugs }.  I have a lot of Cleveland friends, so I've found myself rooting for the Indians a lot.  We'll see ... tomorrow night's game should be a good one!

    Good game Yankees fans. There’s always next year.

  • I never, ever expected this Yankee team to get anywhere near this. I would've laughed at anyone who told me in April that they'd be going to the ALCS. I am so proud of them. 

    Congratulations to the Indians on an excellent season. You guys were a more than worthy opponent.

    @banana468 , @cupcait927 , @climbingwife - likewise!

    Y'all have a stellar bullpen.  I'm mostly excited about home field advantage, although last night proved that it doesn't always mean what it should.  

    I had fun last night watching social media in Houston explode with "YES!   Yankees Win!  Home field advantage!  Now let's kill 'em!"
