In early voting, Yu Darvish is leading the vote for Astros WS MVP.  Oh well, game five was an all time classic at least.

A bit of a letdown after an otherwise phenomenal series. One for the ages though. Congrats Astros!

Astros found the Dodgers weakness: low inside pitches.  They fell for it all through game 7.  Yea Darvish didn't do his part, but the offense choked also.

Well, at least the Dodgers got there and went to game 7.  That's a huge step from past years.

There's a part of me that still doesn't believe that the Astros won the World Series. So damn proud of them.

As a Brewers fan, I'm very happy that our GM is partially responsible for building the current Astros roster.
Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream?

Derek Jeter just enhanced his legacy as a Yankee.

Oh, wait, he's the owner of the Marlins.  Something smells fishy.  :-\
