I'd like to see the Astros take at least one in Boston and win it @ home.

Regardless, if they win one in Boston (which I expect), they aren't winning 3 in a row in Houston. Unless they win games 1 and 2, the series will finish in Boston, winner idk.

You can't know that and it's the same reason I said "at least". We take one in Boston, they will be biting their nails.

Of course I don't know that lol. But as good as both teams are, I find it hard to picture a scenario where one team beats the other 3 times in a row. Boston won't be "biting their nails if they don't win both at home... They dropped one at home against the Yanks and responded with a 16-1 victory. If they drop 2 at home, time to bite nails. Again,  I think both teams are too good for one to beat the other 3 in a row.

With all due respect... And I do mean all due respect... This idea ain't worth a velvet painting of a whale and a dolphin gettin it on.

We were one bad call away from doing just that last month in their house.

I don't put a ton of stock in regular season series. Especially considering Boston had clinched home field throughout, not saying they weren't trying to win, but end of the regular season games with nothing to play for is different. Again, I can't predict the future, but I don't see either team winning 3 in a row. We will see.

Actually, it’s what is scary about 2-3-2 if the first two get split.

I’m not a fan of that format for the home field team.  You split at home and the series may not ever come back.  They only way you actually have home field is if it goes 7 games.

See we do agree from time to time.  Ever since they instituted this in the NBA, I thought it devalued home field advantage significantly.  But I guess that may have been the point.  Either way, I prefer the 2-2-1-1-1 format.

I don't think home field is going to play a big role in this series. We closed them out up there last year, we had one of the best road records in MLB history this year, and we played in a tougher division overall than the Sox did. Plus, we clicked on all cylinders in the first round. I think we're gonna show the baseball world just how genius Lunhow and the front office really is in this series.

This has been a pretty sloppy game from both sides. Pitchers struggling with control, fielding woes, and an awful unpire (both ways). Astros doing enough to come away with a win.

      j Aj has played extremely well this year.  From the 3 games I've seen Dayton play the edge defense is good.  The middle is soft and so is the secondary.  Orebo and pike have looked good on defense.  My buddy called me after the Nederland game and he was completely disgusted.  He seems to think there is more to Dayton losing than "not having the talent!" He knows the kids personally some of these kids tell stories that if they got out it would be a mess. Going to be an interesting off season.  I hope Dayton can turn it around but I don't see it happening.  I pray all kids go injury free for the remainder of the year.

      What comments do I have to be concerned about to be "getting called out on" . I'm pretty sure I haven't posted lies or talked negatively about anyone or team.

      Here are my thoughts. Crosby is a great school district who is obviously going through some tough times right now. I think as a district mate of Crosby that I would like to offer up my thoughts and prayers for all of the affected, and all of the kids in the district. I would even consider buying something from the fundraising to help in whatever small way that I could. Remember THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO THE KIDDOS of the district. They deserve better than whatever has hit the school. I hope and pray that the situation is fixed in the near future and also hope for the best for the departing coaches and teachers.  Your fellow district mate and a PN-G Indian.
