They are the Houston fucking Astros, people.

Jesus fucking Christ. This is not rocket science.

You're pinning your hopes on the Houston fucking Astros.

"Oh, Boil, look at their OPS. Look what they did to us in the ALDS. Remember when they beat the Yankees in that wild card game? And they have done such a good job of team building through advanced metrics and draft picks. Even Sports Illustrated knew it. And the Yankees aren't ready yet."

Give me a fucking break. They are the Astros. This is the ALCS. Against the Yankees. They are going to shit their pants.

Will there be a moment or two when the Yankees seem on the ropes and that eight pound second baseman is jumping up and down like they actually believe they might win? Yeah, maybe even a couple of them. They. Are. The. Fucking. Astros. You're pinning your hopes on salvaging something left of this shit season on the Houston Fucking Astros. The team that when they play at home you still get surprised there is no pitcher batting because you forgot they are even in the fucking AL. And you have them winning it?

They will flash some stat about Judge's epic strike out prowess in game three, he'll hit a ball 850 feet through the fucking Bronx library, Hinch will soil himself and that will be that.

It sucks. The Yankees will win. Trump will be President. The USA will be out of the World Cup. And somewhere Aaron Fucking Boone and Jessica Fucking Mendoza will have simultaneous orgasms over that gap tooth zombie looking Paul Bunyan mother fucker while you vomit flaming chetohs and funyons on your sneakers.

Sorry. It's the Houston Fucking Astros. Fuck. Grow Up.

(Go Dodgers! Barf.)

This is a masterpiece.

I forgot how much I hated them


It's a lot
I remember some people were saying how the MFY hate had eased quite a bit from 2013-2016...and even this year it wasn't that bad....but some of us said "just wait until they are winning again". Didn't take long.

Those fans in the stands continue to make New Yorkers proud....jesus. Whoever said they always appear to be a caricature was right. It's amazing. Make hating the MFY really easy.

Can I stop hearing from NY fans and the experts that they are underdogs or no one expected them to be here, etc?

When they traded away 10+ prospects in July for Gray, Robertson, Frazier and Kahnle, they lost any underdog status they may have had. Not to mention their two relievers they used tonight make a combined 30 million bucks. So I don't want to hear them talked about as if they are some rebuilding 50 million dollar payroll like a Kansas City or whomever just because they have cut some payroll recently.

The number 1 goal is for the Red Sox fan is for Boston to win it all and the number 2 goal is to make sure the Yankees don't win it all. #1 will not happen and number 2 will not happen.

We will be rejoicing this year, just have to wait another week.

And damn you Cleveland, you pathetic franchise. 6 errors the last two games. Ridiculous.

You know what? Congrats to the MFY and their fans. They beat a juggernaut after falling behind 0-2. I'm jealous. They deserve it. I'll never root for them, but I really respect what they have accomplished.

Playoff Tito!

I've gotta say, it's damn near impossible to root for a team with a racist caricature on their cap and shirt, regardless of their opponent, but I digress. Just an embarrassing series loss for Cleveland. I would imagine after their huge winning streak, winning 102 games, and having the #1 seed that Cleveland fans were convinced that this was finally their year. This has to be an absolute gut punch, especially considering the opponent, and how overwhelmingly they were favorites (30 out of 30 ESPN "experts" picked Cleveland to win the ALDS, and more than half to win the WS).

Probably the same dipshits who are so happy that the MFYs aren't a mediocre 82 win team and that there is a "rivalry" again. Fuck them. If there was any justice they wouldn't win another WS until 2100 if that.

Edit: And fuck their dipshit SS who never hit for shit at any level of his life (including Little League) and who is now Cal fucking Ripken. Something odd there.

Too much reliance on one pitcher. Who looked like a guy who pitched late into October last year.

Plus, the Yankees are really good, especially if CC And Tanaka can give them 5-6 good innings every start.

Houston is better but Yankees are really good.

No way the we had two longest droughts ended back to back anyway. But not even making the ALCS is a real letdown for a team as good as the Tribe was this year.

Well, at least it must be nice for their fans to finally have a shortstop who can both hit and field competently, after these many years. Someone who can handle the tangible parts of the game.

This post is gross and I am baffled after watching this series that your takeaway is respect rather than uncontrollable hatred, as God intended.

In hindsight, I wish the Sox had been the wild-card and got to face the Indians - I think they could have beaten them (presuming they got past the Twins, which was hardly a guarantee).

The aura of Playoff Tito definitely took a hit in this series. The Indians definitely looked tight the last two games. I hope Hinch has the Astros better prepared to respond the first time the Yankees punch them in the mouth in the ALCS.

Last year's Cleveland team was missing two key pitchers and a key every day player. Tito managed circles around Maddon, final outcome notwithstanding
To do that, he also needs a little bit of luck and he needs his players to execute.

The Indians couldn't buy a hit, and as soon as they strung a couple of hits together to make it 3-2, in come Robertson and a DP to end the inning.

Same as we had our hopes on Sale in tha playoffs, they must have had their hopes on Kluber, who blew it twice.

Tito made good decisions, but also bad ones this series, but when this lineup, which is a very good one, cannot manage to get hits and runs of Tanaka and Sabathia (they are not bad pitchers but they were never this good this season) then Tito's amazing managing abilities are wasted.

You know what? I like this Yankees team. Judge is awesome. Good on Sabathia for making one last playoff run. Robertson is a great dude. Sanchez is a monster. I can't hold any hate for the Yankees after last decade. We're living well.

So Trump has finally broken you. Sad.
