What a time to be an Astros fan

The last time the Astros were remotely close to this good, I was in a phase where I didn't pay attention to sports at all so this is new and fun for me.

Also that ketchup slip and slide is a disaster

The Astros have never been this good, not even in 98 (e: pre-Randy trade)

e2: For shits and giggles just looked at the 98 team and welp nevermind the 98 team was better lol

Three 6+ WAR position players, one 5+, Randy Johnson had a 4.3 WAR in 11 loving games

That's Dan Gladden (yes the same one that scored the run in game 7), he has some pretty great moments. He also always brings his glove to the booth just in case a foul goes up there.

Though he does suffer from bouts of "old baseball player" to balance it out.

And there were days I know
When all we ever wanted
Was to learn and love and grow
Once we grew into our shoes
We told them where to go
Walked halfway around the world
On promise of the glow
Walked upon a mountain top
Walked barefoot in the snow
Gave the best we had to give
How much we'll never know

I'm watching the Cub game now and there's a Legit Lester Pickoff, a 12-pitch Heyward a/b that ends him slowly rolling it over to second, and a BEEFSLAM and I'm so angry at myself for watching Lester load the bases with no one out in the first and then peaking at the final score to decide whether to actually watch it.

I ragequit after the Schwarber slam. Judging by the box score I didn't miss anything that would have improved my day.
