Damn, they have a powerhouse lineup. They're just crushing the Red Sox. Sale was a Cy Young candidate and Pomorantz had a very good year - and they got smashed in the face.

Houston's #8 in the lineup had 90 RBI!! Holy crap.

The Sox won today - big deal. Verlander can close it out tomorrow, and I'll bet he will vs. Sale. Sale is a beast in the first half of his seasons, but he tails off dramatically in the 2nd half. I was hoping the Sox got swept just so dingdong manager Farrell would get fired.

"BANG THE CAN SLOWLY"

This will be the epitaph in the movie coming out in a few years on this Sign Stealing scandal.

Being a Dodger fan living in Houston made 2017 very interesting for me... Essentially, I could not lose as a fan because Houston so needed that after Harvey and also for being a Dodger fan. Losing to Houston essentially eased my pain.

As it turns out, I did lose, in a big way. My team may have been cheated out of a championship and the winning team is now an embarrassment.. Now the players are trying to claim contrition with weak and less than heart-felt apologies.

You can say what you want.. They won away games. Lost at home. Doesn't matter.. One pitch they stole the sign on may have been the difference between winning and losing. We'll never know for sure.

Talking to Astros fans here in Houston you'll get some mixed feelings/opinions but mostly it's just shame and disappointment..
