2019 World Series: Houston Astros vs. Washington Nationals

Recommended Posts

best part about this is picturing Harper sitting at home with perfectly coiffed hair watching his old team wrecking shop in the series the first year he's gone.

I can't like this enough.  He brought DC a championship... by leaving.

Watching the Astros implode is a very minor consolation, but a consolation none the less I guess. Hopefully the Nats finish the job, would be cool to see a 1st time champion.

Lot of talk recently about how given the high number of tanking teams these days, winning 100 games isn’t some major barometer of true talent level like it used to be. The Twins won 103 and didn’t look like they belonged in the playoffs at all. The Yankees won over 100 despite major rotation flaws & piles of injuries, which both showed up in the postseason. Now the team with the best record in the sport is getting all they can handle from a wild card winner.

Nats are a wild card winner but since the later part of May, they have a one game better record than the Astros. They just got off to a terrible start and then turned it around. They didn't really piss and fart their way into the playoffs. But I don't think anyone expected this kind of performance. They kind of remind me of the 2014 Royals. That team barely won a wild card play in game against the A's. And the parlayed that into a World Series appearance and one game away from beating the Giants. Both teams are very fun to watch.

I say in 5.
2-0 in Houston

Win Greinke/Cole’s starts in DC - former NL pitchers and they can’t be any worse than Alvarez

No way this goes 6
Astros sweep.
May extend to 5 if the Astros RISP issues take until game 2 to fix

There was a lot of money spent on those tickets behind home plate. Fucking empty

Astros in 5. Not seeing any chance the Nationals win this. But I picked Yankees in 7 last series so what the fuck do I know.

Am I the only one old enough to remember the 1990 WS? Because I'm having flashbacks to that.  Bash Brothers defending champs A's, who looked unbeatable with the two best pitchers in MLB that season against a fairly non-descript Cincy team.  Reds blew them out in G1, beat Eck in extra innings in G2, and then swept them.

 This is standard postseason since they introduced the wild card. Not to mention, the Nats were stacked and a bit of a regular season underachiever.

I know I’m over posting, but “a bit”! You ain’t lying.

Raises hand. 

What was the Reds moniker,  The Nasty Boys?

Wonder if Bergman regrets his little camera wink after that homer .

they better take this thing seriously, team mindset is too lax. Stop trying to hit a HR with every swing.

Bregman doesn't look like Bregman. The look on his face is "I see dead people..." or some shit. I think he started to think about things. Got inside his own head. Or maybe his girlfriend took massage lessons from Corea's fiance'.

Sometimes it has to do with matchups and the Nats dodged a bullet not having to play Atlanta.

Hey, Joe Buck had just pronounced that he was back.  And then he proceeded to go 0-for-3 and make an error.

Gonna have to disagree a bit here.  Atlanta was not the same team.  The Nationals are just hitting on all cylinders.  Pretty sure they would have beat the Atlanta team that the Cardinals faced pretty easily.

Maybe, even the Nats relief and closers are feeling it.

Javy Guerra and Rodney pitched in a World Series game the Nationals won. 

I more can't believe that Daniel Hudson is their relief ace.  He was pretty much a spare in Arizona and that was about 3 Tommy Johns ago.

Someone asking a critical question of Osuna after giving up the lead, and the drunk Astro employee emphatically defends his player and says nothing wrong.

Are we really surprised the New York media misrepresented another story??  Of course she was able to make the situation about herself.

The Astros gave up their lie/smear campaign pretty quick on this one. Very weird situation. I guess they ultimately did the right thing, they just took a shitty route to get there.
