I've decided that this loss rests solely on Matthew McConaughey and whoever decided to invite him. And now I'm ready to move-on.

Well pretty bummed today but it was a great season with a crappy ending. But I'll be back there next year and we'll start this crazy ride all over again.

Anyone else wishing they would have dropped more dough on WS gear in '17?

Don't think he knows he's being filmed there. He just looks like a sad and shocked Astros fan in that clip to me --- just like many of the rest of us.

One thing I know for sure... the fact that we won in 17 let me get over this real quick. If not I'd have been super depressed and pissed.

As much as I appreciate Cole's efforts this season this feels like a pretty disingenuous statement. The fact he put on a Boras Corp hat the second the season was over pisses me off. I get it, you're a free agent, had the best season of your career and you want to cash in, you deserve it. Guys in that clubhouse are sad, fans are sad, lots to get over. Maybe wait till tomorrow to do something like that.

Getting to the World Series is hard, there's a chance none of them get to play in another World Series game again. Maybe he signs a monster deal with a team and is right back there next season, money seems to be on either LAA or NYY. No guarantee Houston's going back next season, we have talent, but getting there is hard.

I'll be mad a while that we lost last night, but winning in 2017 is my favorite sports memory of all time, 2019 would have just been gravy. Would winning last night have held a candle to 2017? Nope. Nothing will ever top it. Aggies could win a national title in football and the Texans could win a Super Bowl and it wouldn't be as big a deal to me as the Astros winning the WS. It's the team of my childhood, I teared up after winning that game it was so emotional. The only other time in my life I cried because I was happy was the day my daughter was born. I went to Biggio's HOF induction, tried to make Bagwell's but things didn't work out. Baseball is special to me, this team is special to me. If I ever meet Crane, Morton, Luhnow, Springer, Altuve, Hinch, etc in person I'll thank them for 2017.

But before you run out the door looking for your pile of money you might want to savor what you just went through this season. You might not get to experience it again.

Outstanding post. For me it's 1(A) Aggies and 1(B) Astros, so the only thing that would come close to 2017 for me would be an Aggie National Championship.

Jesus... don't be a ***** man. They are still a great team and I thoroughly enjoyed watching them and talking about them no matter what.

Ok...I'll cut you slack. It does sound a little more melodramatic than it reality. But still, I just didn't want to wear it...the guy at the butcher shop always wants to talk baseball and I didn't want to invite it...my enthusiasm is at an ebb

'Cut you slack'... you have some drama tendencies don't you?

Regarding the Astros, they have been the best team in baseball for about 3 years now collectively and will continue to be up there next season. I'll gladly talk about them over about any other of my sports teams and it isn't close still.

They lost last night, but they are still ridiculously exciting and fun.

Depending on how you define "best", the Astros have been the best team in baseball since 2015. They have 481 regular season wins (only the Dodgers have more - 485). Playoffs 4 of last 5 years. 3 consecutive CS, 2 penants, 1 WS championship.

Virtually no one tops that.

Cole owes Houston for the pitcher he turned into. If it weren't for the Astros, he would just be another ho hum Pirates pitcher. I think that's what grates on me more than anything. You're welcome for this huge windfall you're about to get. Don't let the door hit you on the way out

The 2019 Astros and the 1989 Aggies. Two of the best teams ever that didn't win it all.

**** Cole. We rescued your sorry ass from a terrible pirates team. Show some ****ing class. You are going to get paid because of the Astros not despite the Astros. His California roots showed here. **** Cole. I hope you land on a team and never make the playoffs again. Have fun being the Charles Barkley and Dan Marino of MLB pitchers.

Maybe this.
Also could be the frustration of losing as well.
