Default Official Houston Astros Vs. Boston Red Sox ALCS Thread

Should be a great series. Top 2 teams in baseball (at least according to record) slugging it out. Hope for a good series either way it goes.

*didn't see a thread so if I missed it feel free to delete this one.

I agree but Milwaukee can battle with anyone if they can keep the bullpen involved. But that's probably just me being nice. Won't be a 7 game series this year, I don't think. Astros and Red Sox just have too many weapons on both sides of the game.

Took this picture this morning as I entered downtown Houston to pick up my wife as she was released early from jury duty. I took the day off to take her since she has pretty bad anxiety when driving the freeways.

Can't wait!

as a life long astros fan here are my thoughts:

Heart says astros in 6
head says red sox in 6

* regardless, I would much rather lose to the red sox than the yankees

I don't care how good the Astos infielders are......these guys are MUCH cooler running down flyballs. Advantage = Sawks

I can see this going to either team, but I'm going Sox in 7. Either way, I don't think this goes less than 6, and should be a great series.

Important thing is the Yanks are out, so we've already all won

Really looking forward to this one. I don't think it's at all too far out there to say these teams may be the 2 best in baseball this year. Could easily see this one go 7 games

Won't make a prediction but obviously I want Houston to win. Getting nervous as Boston's offense scares me. But I guess Boston cam say the same for Houston's offense so I guess it's a wash. I hope Price doesn't pitch well to shut his critics up. Last year as a relief pitcher he did well against them in the playoffs. But I guess huge difference between starter and coming in as a relief.

I think the schedule was made during the Boston /NY series and they had to work around a potential game 5 game which would have been tonight.
