Yankees announced CC in game 3 and Gray in game 4, HOU hasn't announced guys for games 3/4 yet.

Hoping for an Astros sweep, but think Astros win in 6.

Over/Under on the number of Judge K's this series? 25?

Had a Yankee fan say to me that they'll probably lose because MLB wants Houston to win the same way they fixed 2013 for Boston. They wonder why everyone hates them.

And 2001 for them, as well as some others; yankee excuses for being mediocres.

Let me get this out of the way early. I want to punch Brett Gardner in the face.

I don't care what anyone says, there's no way Judge is 282 lbs. He may be 6'7" in cleats, but all those people saying "he's bigger than Gronk" are crazy. Don't get me wrong, still a big dude, but Gronk makes him look like a toothpick. No way Judge has close to 20 lbs on him. They're just measurables put out there to up the hype..

Maybe his big feet are really heavy.

Yankees are more thick headed, denser.

What ever happened to Trupe? Guy had some good radio pipes. Depth perception not so much, but good pipes.

A lot of MFY might be peaking together now and Houston might have shot their wad against us. What a revolting development this is. Anybody remember William Bendix?

Ha, you guys think the Astros have a shot? It's the YANKEES.

Taking advantage of the Astros aggressiveness with sinkers, splitters and sliders.

It’s weird that the Sox strategy of fastballs down the middle didn’t work against this lineup.
