    You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there. Yogi Berra.

    I believe the first team to score three runs will win game 6. Of course, it could be 1-0 or 2-0/2-1. I doubt it will be a slugfest. The series is up in the air, if you go to a game seven. Houston has forgotten how to hit this series. Houston was or is a run scoring machine :). Was Boston that bad of a team ? With the noise and fans at Minute Maid, it is possible the team will suddenly re-discover how to weld lumber and swing for lightning and thunder.

    A few more points ;). All MLB umpires completely stink and demonstrate zero consistency. I have watched enough games to realize the umps cannot possibly call a game correctly. I am not talking about an ump who consistently calls the same pitch two inches off the plate, for both teams. With these bozos, it is obvious some of the same exact pitches may or may not be called for a strike.

    The umps cannot possibly call an up and in 99 mph F.B. and painted 82 mph slider down and away consistently. Several mistakes are made each game. These mistakes are costly, for both teams. Gary Sanchez achieved an extra pitch in his A.B., and promptly slapped a double into LF. Sony Gray was screwed on the walk to George Springer. The last pitch was clearly a strike, to George Springer. These morons should all be selling popcorn and a machine should call the balls and strikes. If it makes you happy, just let them yell and jump around behind the plate after the machine determines, if the pitch is a ball or a strike. Enough is enough.

    In addition, it is quite clear the umps give a small edge to each home park. In other words, the umps at Minute Maid Park and Yankee Stadium give small advantages to the home team. This trend will continue. Advantage for the home team.

    Take one game at a time. With Houston, it will be in it's interest to score early and avoid the New Yawk bullpen. The Yank's only have to win one game. Most likely the Yank's will play relaxed in Game 6. Anything is possible, if the series stretches to seven games. All hands on deck. GO ASTROS.

    Dodgers beat Cubs 11-1 in Chi to get to the world series.

    They will be better rested than either NYY or Hou.

    That has potential downside in that hot teams usually want to stay " on" and not lag. Dodger pitchers should be rested and ready to go.

    If anything, this series proved that these two teams are damn equal.

    Wah wah..... Yankees CHOKE.

    Sorry they had them 3-2 after winning 3 straight and couldn't put it away.

    Congrats to the Astros.

    At least there will be no rain outs in the WS this year.

    Choke? No way. Cleveland choked. Yankees are a year ahead of schedule

    Neither team could hit on road. Play another game at stadium and its 4-4.

    good luck Houston but now la has home field and a better bullpen so I pick la in 6. Now that yanks are out, doubt i watch single inning of ws though

    Anyone who had tickets to game 5 received an entire postseason of thrills, condensed into 10 innings. There will be plenty of hoarse throats in Houston tomorrow.

    Have a buddy that was given tickets and took his son who is a really good little leaguer. Said they got home around 3am.

    My throat is a bit sore and I have a beer headache lol. I had gotten in bed and then jumped out when the game winning hit happened lol.
