    o OK, the Astros won't be down 3 Games to 0, or even 3 Games to 1 ........ that was my biggest concern, of them getting sandbagged by a hot, fortuitous Yankees team before they knew what hit them. o

  7. o The late Walter Young. He was 450 pounds (at 6'5" tall) when he died of a heart attack in 2015, at the age of 35. He did briefly play in the Major Leagues (and he even hit a home run) in 2005. He had 13 HR's and 81 RBI's for AAA-Ottawa that same season. o

    o I suspect that the Astros and their fans are breathing a huge sigh of relief after that 11-inning, walk-off win on a Carlos Correa Home Run. ) o
  10. o Paxton had to alter his delivery after the Astros picked up on a "tell" earlier this season ........ we saw the Astros take advantage of Tyler Glasnow tipping his pitches in the 5th and deciding game of the ALCS on Thursday night. Astros, Who Picked Up on tipped Pitches in ALDS Game 5, Have a Similar History with Yankees' James Paxton (By R.J. Anderson) https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/astros-who-picked-up-on-tipped-pitches-in-alds-game-5-have-a-similar-history-with-yankees-james-paxton/ o
  11. o (ALCS, Game Two) ***************** Justin Verlander is pitching this game of 4 days' rest, after having a bad game on 3 days' rest when manager AJ Hinch went for the kill against the D-Rays in Game 4 of the ALDS. In 4 consecutive starts down the stretch between September 3rd and September 21st, James Paxton had an 0.36 ERA with an 0.689 WHIP, wracking up 29 Strikeouts with only 6 Walks over 24.67 Innings Pitched. ) ) He did give up 2 Runs in only 1 Inning Pitched in his final start of the regular season after that on September 27th, but that was after the Yankees had already locked up the #2 overall seed and were setting their pitching rotation up for the upcoming post-season.

    o All of that said, they had BETTER win tonight with Verlander going against Paxton. ) o

    o I'm not going to be overly concerned (unless and until) the Astros are down 3 games to 0 ........ maybe I'll be concerned if it is 3 games to 1. Houston's pitching is that good, that even if they lose a game or 2 early in the series, they are strong enough to still be favored (and expected to) to win the next game and get right back into the series. One reason why I like Best-of-7 series better than Best-of-5 series is that a team is less likely to win via a large dose of luck ........ not that the Yankees are/were necessarily lucky (they are VERY good, and they are the biggest threat to keeping the Astros out of another World Series appearance), but I do believe that the Astros are better, and hence I still believe that it is more likely that they will wind up on top as American League champions when all is said and done. I would still put the odds at about 57% - 43% that the Astros will win this ALCS. If the Yankees win tonight to go up 2 games to 0, I still won't be panicked, but I would then switch the odds of winning the series to them (probably something like 60% to 40% in favor of the Yankees.) o
  14. o Thurman Munson, another tragic plane crash victim from the 70's, also had an outstanding arm behind home plate. The Clemente and Munson plane crashes that occurred 7 years apart in 1972 and 1979 respectively were 2 of the saddest incidents of my baseball memories from my childhood. o
