houston, we have liftoff

After 44 years of existence, the Astros have finally made the World Series. That leaves only 5 teams that have not made an appearance, one of which being the Texas Rangers. So looking at the teams that were ousted from the playoffs, its become obvious that pitching has won out over hitting (see Boston, New York, St. Louis). The White Sox/Astros match up appears pretty even with probably a slight edge in offense and starting pitching to Chitown and the bullpen/closer advantage going to Houston. I see a low scoring series throughout going six games… I’ll wait to divulge who I think will win. Who would have thought that this team which got swept in Arlington by the Rangers in late May would find itself in the World Series.

Oswalt was unhittable most of the night.

Zam, are you in there somewhere? ;)
