Houston to the Fall Classic!

We here at H-town Sports are often accused of being cynical, sarcastic, and/or cruel. And we are. But watching the Houston Astros win the pennant last night...just an absolutely tremendous, pure moment for the team and its fans. What can you say? The Wizard was unhittable. The bottom of the order came up huge, especially Everett. Jason Lane, relegated to spot duty for the past two seasons, hits another game-changing postseason HR. Qualls and Wheeler, unheard of until this season, throwing darts. Bidge and Bags, more deserving and happier than anyone. I could go on, but I'm getting a little emotional. Now it's on to Chicago for the next step in the march to greatness. For the record, I'm calling 'Stros in six.

You left out the Family Man, whose 3 hits last night continued a downright impressive couple of months at the plate, which is good, since his defensive prowess is now such that he does not even bother to make an attempt to throw out opposing baserunners. The biggest question that I have is whether or not Scott Podsednik will be able to steal second and third on one pitch.

One other thought: too bad we're not going to see an Oswalt-Buehrle matchup. That game could last less than 90 minutes.

Looks like I was dead on about the 'Stros winning in six. Crap.
