    Some stats for Astros

    Sale is 0-2 with 8.86 ERA

    Price: No Stats he was used out of the BP.

    I thought the Yankee series was going to be tough. This will be Tougher. I will say, Sox in 7

    LOL get ready to go down 0-2 tomorrow with Price pitching. Just admit it the Astros are the better team.
    But I'm sure most of you won't, cause most of you live in a delusional bubble.

    I am a Red Sox fan, but I have no problem admitting that Houston is the better team.

    That said, as good as they are, the Astros did not so much win Game 1 as the Red Sox lost it. It was just a bad, bad overall performance for Boston.

    First off, 10 walks (plus 3 hit batsmen) is simply unconscionable for a team in the ALCS.

    Not only that, the defense was not sharp (Nunez especially had a tough time at the hot corner leading to that crucial go-ahead run in the sixth), their focus was off (look at Martinez not running out a dropped third strike), and as expected, their bullpen was the weaker of the two and, to top it off, it was Fenway Park and that quirky right field (that X-factor) that helped secure the game for Houston.

    The called third strike to Benintendi on a 3-2 pitch with the bases loaded in the 5th was probably the turning point (it was a ball, but it was also too close to take under those conditions).

    Finaly someone admits it, There's no shame at looking at a team like Houston and admitting they maybe a tad better then you. Sure the Redsox had more wins but that means nothing at the end of the day. A lot here think I hate the Red Sox I don't I just hate how some here act like this team is perfect and can't do no wrong. Look I get that I understand you want the team to win day in and day out I do to, But I'm not afraid to admit when the better team is better. Its like Bill Parcels once said Individuals play the game, but teams win championships.

    Devers is making me look good so far. Nunez would prob have struck out in that situation
