Like this for Dusty and Vazquez. Also, they won in 17 and the Sox won in 18. Astors win in 22, maybe Sox go worst to first again.

The last 3 games of this series pretty much ran parallel to the last 3 games of the ALCS last year. Red Sox and Phil’s offense went absolute limp dick in games 4-6. Credit to Astros pitching I guess.

It was nice of Maldonado to honestly admit on national tv his strategy was to get as close to the plate as possible and not move (to avoid an HBP) because the pitcher was having so much success with his inside sinker (to RHB). Just wait to get hit. His elbow movement was not avoidance, it was movement in to encourage contact with the ball. Credit to good strategy, even if it is chickenshit.

I'm really pissed that the Astros won, but also not surprised. The Phillies just weren't built for a title.

But I'm super happy for Dusty. He's a really great guy, and I'm so happy that he finally got his title. I'm also happy for Verlander and Vaz. It also helps knowing that the Astros sent the Yankees home early.

Other than that, fuck the Astros. And fuck Rob Manfred, too. He really needs to go...

I know I already posted something like this, but it's painful seeing the Astros win the WS. At least there's a few positive aspects though, like Dusty, Verlander, and Vazquez, and also the fact that they swept the Yankees in the ALCS.

Other than that, screw the Astros. I hope the Mariners take over in the Division next year.

And they disappointed Phillies fans, who are in my opinion a much bigger band of assholes than are Yankees fans. Yes, I said it. Prove me wrong.

I'd say Phillies fans are the second worst. Nothing can ever top Yankees fans as the worst in all of sports.

I'm tempted to put Astros fans as the third worst, but then again they're not super annoying.
