WORLD SERIES BOUND
The Astros are headed to the World Series!!!
The ‘Stros strong performance in NLCS Game 6 wipes out all memories of NLCS Game 5, which was an awesome game to go to. I was sitting in the 3rd deck, 2nd row behind home plate. Minute Maid Park was buzzing with excitement until Albert Pujols hit a home run that probably would have landed in Conroe.
Congratulations to the Astros for coming back and winning Game 6 of the NLCS. The whole city is buzzing with Astro-mania. It is great for the fans and the team, especially Craig Biggio and Jeff Bagwell.
The Astros will come into this strong. We will only have two days rest, whereas the White Sox have been off for a week. The rotation is setup perfect having Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte starting in Chicago and then having Roy Oswalt and presumably Brandon Backe in games 3 and 4. This is all setup to have Roy Oswalt, the best pitcher in the NL the last two year setup to go in Game 7, if necessary. I don’t think it will go that far. I think the Astros will win in 5 or 6.
It would be awesome to close it out at home after NLCS Game 5.
