Perhaps this even better tonight. Most hits , least strikeouts is amazing.

The Astros are so dominant on offense that they LEAD the entire major leagues in the following key indicators: BA .283, OBP .349, SLG .487, OPS .836, Runs 464, Hits 814, 2B 172, HR 133, TB 1399, and SO 561 (less than any other team).

I've never seen anything like it, total offensive domination.

I know we are in uncharted waters for an Astros team to be this dominate, but isn't it fun.

60-29 at the All-star break.

Well, I don't trust anyone in the bullpen as far as I can spit but as long as they keep mashing, it won't make any difference. Get Keuchel rolled back into the rotation and they really ought to end up in the WS. I'd love to see an Astros vs. Dodgers WS....

Wahoo, Astros in the World Series. These games were pretty well played, so lots of fun to watch.

Btw, on a real positive for Houston, the Astros are looking pretty good. Pitching, hitting, pretty exciting. Go Stros!

Game 5 was a classic won by Astros 13-12 in 10 innings. Astros hit a record 5 HR by 5 different players.

Two of the best World Series games ever played have now happened in the same series. Game 2 and Game 5. Unbelievable stuff.

Seems appropriate for this city to play a possible clinching game on Halloween.

Indeed. My family moved to Houston in 1965 - when I was 8. Now, I'm 60. 52 years in the waiting. OK, Lord, you can take me now. I'm not waiting on the Texans...
