God I hate the Yankees.    Then again, I hate the Pirates due to 1971 and 1979.  If I hear "We are family" on the radio, I quickly change the channel.  Thankfully, that horrible song doesn't get played much anymore.   

Yooouuuuuu asked for it.  

 

And it will 40 years ago tomorrow that they clinched the Series.  With the Steelers having already won Super Bowl XIII, Pittsburgh also became the second city to win both the Super Bowl and the World Series in the same year, with the New York Jets and the New York Mets winning titles in 1969.  The O's were responsible for both.  Ugh.

Thankfully, those painful defeats were rectified by the 1970 Orioles, 1983 Orioles, and 1970 Colts.  The key is to win the championship shortly after losing the awful series in order to undo much of the damage.  Still waiting for 1997 and 2014 to be redeemed.

The Jets and the Mets won world championships in separate seasons (1968 and 1969, respectively), even though said Super Bowl was played in January of 1969.

The Steelers are known as "The Team of the 70's" because they won 4 Super Bowls in that decade ........ so even though they beat the Rams in the Super Bowl in January of 1980, that game (and the championship) belongs to 1979.

The same is true of the 49ers, whom are known as "The Team of the 80's" ........ when they beat the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXIV, the game was played in January of 1990 ........ but it belongs to the 1989 season.

ALCS, Game Four )))))) (Postponed)

 

The postponement of tonight's scheduled game means (presuming that the Yankees win at least one of the next 2 games) that there will not be a day off in between Games 5 and 6.

You can look at it that way, but when you’re 12 and your favorite football team loses the Super Bowl in a huge upset in January and then your favorite baseball team loses the World Series in October, and the winning teams are both from New York and thus those upsets get mega-media coverage for years afterwards, it’s little solace to say “technically, they didn’t happen in the same season.”

I will hate the Jets and Mets until the day I die.

It's not me looking at it that way, it's a fact. Getting technical is pointing out that the title game happened in the same calendar year as did the series, not pointing out the fact that they happened in successive seasons. As I used in an analogy, there is no dispute about the technicality of the Steelers winning their 4th Super Bowl of the 70's decade January of 1980, nor about the 49ers winning their 4th Super Bowl of the 80's decade in January of 1990. 

The losses/upsets are no less historic and monumental because they occurred in successive (as opposed to the same) seasons, and if you are heartbroken about both of those epic world championship losses/upsets, that's fine ......... but reality doesn't change to simply augment the drama of those heartbreaking losses. They are/were such historical and epic upsets that happened so close together (successive seasons), they don't need any such augmentation.

I know the story was the ball with Didi's not quite 3-run HR off Cole in Game 3, but that batted ball was way too similar to the Jeffrey Maier one for it to evoke any response but wishing there was replay in 1996.

For all the praise being lavished on Torres as a Juan Soto-esque wunderkind, it surprises me some they keep batting him after Brett Gardner and Aaron Hicks these last couple games.

Greinke was in danger of immediately getting into deep trouble in the very 1st inning.

With the bases loaded and 2 outs, he walked a run in on 4 pitches ........ but then he struck out the next batter on 3 pitches to end the threat, and limit the damage.

Tanaka ran into trouble in the 3rd inning, ceding 3 runs to the men from southeastern Texas.

It could have been more, but he managed to get himself out of a deep hole when he stranded 2 runners on 1st and 3rd base with nobody out after George Springer's 3-Run Home Run earlier in the inning.

Greinke recorded another out to begin the 5th inning (making it 10 out of 11 batters overall), but then ceded a Single and a Walk before manager AJ Hinch removed him from the game.

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 themselves 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.)

4 Days Later ........

 

This series is reminding me of the 2010 ALCS between the Rangers and the Yankees ......... after splitting the first 2 games of that series in Texas, the Rangers came back to take both Games 3 and 4 in front of hostile crowds at Yankees Stadium. The Yankees would avoid elimination by winning Game 5, but then were beaten decisively in Game 6 back in Texas.

1) lll Last night's game between the Yankees and the Astros was the 1,609th post-season contest ever since 1903.

And in last night's game, for the first time ever in MLB modern post-season history (1903 - Present), both teams scored runs in the 1st inning without scoring any runs at all for the rest of the game.
