I don't like Garcia as a pitcher, He looks vulnerable. Hope I'm wrong and that he can get through 4 innings without damage.

Bring on the Braves! With Ian Anderson pitching for Atlanta it can't go wrong. No passion play but a triple play

Unfortunately I am missing tonight’s opener as I am playing an open mic but I’ll be watching the rest of them. Go ‘Stros!

Seeing as how they can’t both lose, I’m rooting for the Braves.

Hate that puerile and obnoxious tomahawk chop, but that’s not the players. And I’m still mad about’17.

Houston’s pitching eventually came up trumps in the ALCS but it still scares the shit out of me.

Saw the first 4 innings last night. I think it was 5-1 when fell asleep. Astros needs 2 players to get hot and I think they'll take it 4-2. Pound for pound Astros are the better team, also on the plate although I'm impressed with the Braves' relievers. But really I'd like for Freddie Freeman to win it. I sat behind his entire family in 2011 or so (one of his first seasons) during an Astros (then still NL) and Braves at Minute Maid. and they were just the nicest people.

Nothing would surprise me, but post season Correa and Bregman are starting to remind me of post season Biggio and Bagwell.

Which is hilarious because I’ve been worried about the fucking pitching all this time and the pitchers have mostly been keeping them in ballgames!

They got to Max Fried last time and I think they'll do it again tomorrow. But Anderson will be a bridge too far.
Braves in 7.

Standing room only tickets for tomorrow are going for $450.00-500.00. Nosebleed sections upwards from $600.00.

I keep waiting for Yordan to hit one like that. He’s WAY overdue.

Though it would presumably be to right field.

Or, alternatively, he could squander a lucky lead off single by weakly grounding into a double play

Congrats to the Braves. Well deserved and an appropriate tribute to Hank Aaron.
Astros couldn't do it, neither offensively nor defensively. Only Brantley had a decent production. Maldonado has a higher series AVG than Altuve. That's saying something. And their starting pitchers were mostly under par. I thought it was great that Freeman hit that solo homer as the final nail in the coffin. If anybody deserved that it was Freddy
