Posted on February 16, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine After winning the 2017 World Series, the Houston Astros have nowhere to go but down. However, the Astros approached the offseason as if they wanted to reload for another championship run. On paper, the Astros may be even better in 2018 than they were in 2017. Can […]

Posted on November 2, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine For the first time in franchise history, the Houston Astros are World Series champions.

Posted on November 1, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine Well, it’s all come down to this. For the second year in a row and for the first time in the history of Dodger Stadium, there will be a Game 7 of the World Series. After the way this series has gone, and really, with the way […]

Posted on October 29, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine It’s amazing how fast momentum can change in the World Series.

But a brutal collapse by the Houston bullpen gave the game […]

Posted on October 28, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine As many would have expected, the Houston Astros were excited to return home in Game 3 of the World Series, and it showed. The Astros were quick to jump on the previously untouchable Yu Darvish, turning a 4-run 2nd inning into a 5-3 win and a 2-1 […]

Posted on October 21, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine There’s nothing quite like a winner-take-all Game 7, and we should be in for a doozy Saturday night in Houston. The way the Yankees and Astros have duked it out all series, it’s only fitting that this series go to a Game 7. With all due respect […]

Posted on October 9, 2017, by Bryan Zarpentine The Boston Red Sox are alive and kicking.
