I still can't stop laughter about that ****ing smile. This pushed me over the top this morning.

A Scene from Episode VII, the 'Stros Awaken

INT. MINUTE MAID PARK - NARROW CORRIDOR - DAY
A LOCKER ROOM DOOR opens.
Several Houston Astros enter. One man has a sweet goatee and mustache (JUSTIN VERLANDER), with a hot swimsuit model on his arm.
They turn into and stop at one end of the corridor.
Juan Soto, trying to stuff the World Series trophy into his travel bag, stands , forty feet away in the middle of the long hallway.

VERLANDER: Juan Soto. You are a dead man.
Juan smiles innocently, friendly.
JUAN: Justin Verlander! What's the problem?
VERLANDER: The problem is you're in my way.
VERLANDER: Heard you also said Stephen Strasburg was better than Gerrit Cole.
JUAN: You know you can't trust that long-haired freak! How long've we known each other?
VERLANDER: The question is how much longer will we know each other? Not long. We want our trophy back now.
JUAN: Ya think beating the Dodgers and Cardinals was easy? I've earned this trophy!
VERLANDER: Gerrit Cole says he wants a piece of you too.
JUAN: I never said anything bad about Gerrit Cole!
VERLANDER: Tell that to Gerrit Cole.

The SOUND of the TRAINING ROOM DOOR opening. Juan's face GOES WHITE as he turns to the OTHER END OF THE CORRIDOR, where Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, Alex Bregman, and George Springer have appeared in their uniforms with bats on shoulders. JUAN smiles uncomfortably at the Astro sluggers as they part and Gerrit Cole walks out to stand in front of them.

JUAN: Gerrit Cole. Good to see you.
COLE: Wrong again, Soto. It's over for you.
Cole COCKS HIS ARM, there for blood.
JUAN: Boys. You're both great pitchers! Have I ever said Strasburg and Scherzer were better than you guys?
Verlander: Yeah.
Cole: Twice!
Juan realizes he's right.
JUAN: What was the second time?
VERLANDER: Your swing is full of holes. There's no one in the World Series for you to hit homers off of.
COLE: No spot in the lineup left for you to hide.
VERLANDER: That trophy ... the American League Apex Predators are looking for one just like it.

Soto poops his pants.

Rondon was an offseason addition after the first championship.

amazing how key pitchers in 2019 were not on the 2017 title team:

Cole, Greinke, Osuna, Pressly, Joe Smith, Rondon, Urquidy, Miley

Holy hangover! One too many old fashions with The Big Hurt at the Four Seasons after the game last night. Best game I've ever been to. Without question. Such a roller coaster of emotions with the DJ bomb off Osuna and walk off jack by Altuve. Plan on watching the game back today but I've got a few questions.

Was Springer pissed at a fan not catching the DJ homer? He sat at the fence forever after the homer and then looked back like he was mean mugging a fan when he finally stood up. I was so far away I couldn't tell what happened there.

Is Pressly's knee completely shot where he won't be back for the WS?

Was Chapman smiling after the Altuve walk off? If so, why?

Thay was the look of "I cant believe that happened." Have you never smiled when something you believe to be incredulous happens? Like a "wtf for real?" Moment.

No. He just was disappointed he couldn't get to it.

Sounds like it was scar tissue dislodging and he might be able to go for WS.

One of those moments where it's so bad you just smile.

George thought he was going to make the catch and was shellshocked a bit when he didnt. IMHO he wasn't mad at the fans at all and given our stupidity in the stands I was happy to see everyone kept their hands to themselves.

Chapman was like "I cannot believe that just happened". Dude just got Lidged. And he has to wait all off season to pitch again.

Yeah ump had a big zone last night and I felt like we got a few more than they did. He was pretty inconsistent with that outside pitch.

How bout we make a couple rules:

1) no more *****ing about media coverage. It's dumb and helps nothing.

2) no more talk about what happens with cole till this series is over.

Can we, as a group, manage to do these two simple things?

The amount of rules that that we have suggested for you specifically over the last 2 seasons gives you zero ability to make or even suggest new rules for anyone else on the board. No silly

SIAP. Love hearing the multiple broadcasts of big calls. The Spanish one is always the best.

So many thoughts from the game. I'm probably more emotional this morning than I was last night. Everything about the night was pure October magic. The group I was with even caught a game ball. God blessed me so much.

We can't appreciate Jose Altuve enough, and this team is just full of alphas.

Let's go win the World Series.
