Thread: 2019 ALCS: Houston Astros vs New York Yankees

  1. #16
    Man this is going to be an epic clash of two titans. I was wondering if an ALCS or NLCS or World Series ever had two teams face off with as many as 210 wins?

    The other interesting thing about the ALCS, it is pretty much the World Series. That is, both teams are better than the two remaining NL teams and thus the winner of the ALCS should win the World Series pretty easily.

    With that said, maybe I shouldn't count out the Nationals--I suppose Max Sherzer and Strasburg could pull a Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling (from 2001). I said during the regular season that the Nationals were the dark horse to win a championship this year.

    Tanaka-Paxton-Sevy is the lineup. I liked the idea of a 2-6 Tanaka better just due to the extra rest. But heís going with his best postseason pitcher first. Tanaka is on the level of Koufax in the postseason (not lying, they put a graphic up and heís that good) so going game 1 makes sense. But heís far better on longer rest and he isnít gonna go game 4 on short rest, so the point seems moot. Maybe he really wanted a home game out of him. Either way, we are gonna go out there and try to match zeros. Huge game tonight. Canít wait

    Greinke needs to pitch a good game tonight. He was awful last time around.

    Agreed man. If he doesn’t have a good game this will be over fast.

    Miley left off the Astros ALCS roster.

    Might be a pen game

    Greinke getting lucky. Judge almost takes him deep. Single by Stanton, rocket DP by Gardner. We gotta get them to fall in
    The rebuild is complete.

    Tanaka is dealing. Greinke has been bailed out by the at 'em ball and one great play from Bregman. Gleyber with an RBI double.
    The rebuild is complete.

    I wouldn't count the Nats out. They have been quite good down the stretch and they have great starting pitching. I wouldn't be surprised if they end up winning it all

    Thanks for the update. Tanaka looks confident out there. They needed a big game from him and they are getting it.

    We need one more inning before he goes batter to batter.
