Spanks win one against the Stros.

Dodgers take it in 7.

Stros over Dodgers if there is a God.

3-2/3 innings, Keuchel has 6 Ks

Yankees have hit 1 ball out of the infield

Suck it.

I will suck deep from delicious victory. Tastes like the sublime tears of Yankee fans.

How'd that sucking work out for ya'?

About as I expected. If it wasn't for the Pens, my life as a sports fan would be one of constant and expected disappointment.  ;D

It appears rooting for Cleveland teams (minus the Cavs recent championship) will do that to you.

No team has ever beaten the Yankees and Red Sox in the same playoffs.  While that sounds daunting, it's only been possible since the Wild Card was instituted in 1994.  Still, that's 20+ years.  Houston has the ability to change that this year.  We will see what we will see.  GO YANKS!!!

Don't worry about him, Gus.  He's just a sad, bitter, Red Sox fan.

I never worry about him. I love him like the odd older brother I never had.
