Unbelieveable way to end their season. I dislike the Red Sox as much as the dodgers.

Tip your hat to the Sox, they played better this series. Astros played sloppy ball in games 3-4, had a few bad calls, and just couldn’t catch the breaks. I would’ve loved seeing Gattis be the DH all postseason, sadly I think he’s gone along with Marwin and Dallas.

Preach, brother.

Last year was a magical ride.

The boys just couldnít capture the same mojo against a hugely talented team.

Nothing embarrassing about it.

I'm wondering if Keuchel isn't the modern day Bret Saberhagen. For the first 8-10 years of his career back in the 80's, Saberhagen would be almost untouchable every other year. Seems Keuchel is on that trend. 2015 he was excellent, 2016 not so much, 2017 lights out, and this year only so so. It would suck to get rid of him and he be lights out in '19

Either way, I'm proud of the Astros. I've suffered thru some pretty crappy teams over the last 4 decades, these guys have nothing to hang their heads over. Thanks for a great year, fellas

It was the best of times and the worst of times, plenty of bats then none at all. Then factor in the injuries, Astros had a pretty rough year in that department.

We'll get'em next year. Maybe hire some umpires too.

It was a run.
Not as cut'n'dry as last year, and we all knew it with the bats being what they were all year..and injuries for most of it .
Still wound up 1st, and playing in a 5 game alcs..
Boston was just better.
Cant dispute it.

Now that it is done.
1) find who screwed up the hitting program and set them on fire...
2) Remove Sipp. Dont allow him to take anything team related with him. Nothing.
3) Form a coalition of all teams to
A) remove Angel and West from anything to do with baseball.
B.) overhaul the MLB and remove the old biased jackasses in charge.
C) overhaul its replay system and the biased use of it for influencing games and series outcomes
D) Make umpires responsible for bad calls. If they are overturned during replay- ridiculously large fine.
Have a review of every call post game and PUBLICALLY score each umpires performance. (if it happens now..no one knows about it)
4) lower the price of beer.

Jmo.

Go Stros.
I still believe.

Much easier to look forward to next year when u easily make it to the LCS. It would really suck to be at the bottom and know you'll probably be near the bottom again. I hope this train ride lasts a long time.

After Hernandez and West are run out of town can every baseball fan everywhere just get one good swing at each of them at least?

I want to hit West's face so hard he instantly loses 50 lbs. of jowls.

Tough break but its been a hell of a season for sure. 100+ wins, best starting rotation in baseball, records broken, division champs, sweep of an ALDS and more. Anyone that gave up on them isn't a true fan. What they did 2 season in a row is remarkable.

Now I have to root for whoever the Sox play because I despise them. Always have since I was a kid. So go NL!!!

After reflecting on it, I have to say y'all are correct. I was beyond disappointed and quite frankly mad last night. I let that get to me and left frustrated. I should have supported through the end and been thankful that they even got to this point in the playoffs. So much better than the 100 loss seasons. Thanks for chastising me and putting my head on straight, I deserved it.

Great season. The end was disappointing but sort of went like the majority of the season. Lots of good streaks and then a bad one here and there that would be 3-4 games in a row. We hit a bad streak in the ALCS and was compounded by pitching issues.

IMO once you make it to the Championship Series it takes perfection and a little luck to make it to the World Series. Anything can and often does happen in the Championship Series. I think the Astros were worn out and the Red Sox were peaking, very similar to last year where the Astros seemed to hit an extra gear in the post season. Maybe it was cause of Harvey or they were just hungry and had something to prove. There is a reason why no team has repeated since the NYY from 98-00. Boston had something to prove, they had the best record in baseball and they needed to go through the defending Champions to get to the Fall Classic. It was a great season by the Astros and they will be top contenders next year again.

I'll be pulling for the Sox. I hate anything LA or NY when it comes to sports, and since Bud Selig is one of the Brewers Owners I can't support his team. I have never had bad feeling towards the Red Sox, IMO they play hardnosed baseball and this year they proved how good of a team they can be.

So for the next couple weeks....GO SOX!

Always been a Redsox fan after the Astros. Cora is a great coach too. Great season by the Stros, just not the magic of last year. Even the crowd was not the same intensity these last few weeks.

Some folks really don't understand how hard it is to win a championship or to repeat. It takes skill, players healthy and a lot of luck and calls to go your way not to mention being hot at the right time. Who would have thought Maldonado would have the blunders he did or the pitching fading or some of the best hitters slumping. It's baseball and it happens. Everything has to go right and it did for the Red Sox this series. Sox played great and I think they beat the dodgers in 5 games. Tip your hat to them, make a few moves and compete again next year.

Well I am disappointed...

I am disappointed for the players. I can honestly say that I have watched more Astros basesball this year than any other year. I've followed them before, sure - but mainly the box score, been to a few games in past years, but this year, felt the most connected to what is actually goin on in the game, etc just because I watched more innings this year than ever before.

So I am bummed for the team. The injuries and the mid season slump caught back up to them. Nobody who watched them throughout the season should be all too surprised. They were better on the road than at home. We had more than a couple terrible series against teams that were above .500. Home field advantage really meant nothing.

You know there is something about watching Altuve limp around the bases that kinda puts a damper on things... You kinda hoped that injury was behind him... I am sure it affected the team as well. Margo bouncing off the Green Giant just served as a reminder of how keeping healthy is too darn important. Corea... well.. clearly not 100%. Was weird seeing Yuli in such a slump and move around the lineup. The Machette was fun to watch when he'd pick somebody off... but not having McCann be healthy enough to be able to leverage his experience in those tight situations... well...

When folks said "they don't look like they want to win!"... well that kinda burns me a bit. Baseball is a game of managing stress... and there was a lot of stress on that team that you really just can't see from watching the post season. Nagging injuries... which caused a drastic yo-yo in team chemistry throughout the season does eventually catch up to you.

So I am bummed for the team. The injuries and the mid season slump caught back up to them. Nobody who watched them throughout the season should be all too surprised. They were better on the road than at home. We had more than a couple terrible series against teams that were above .500. Home field advantage really meant nothing.

You know there is something about watching Altuve limp around the bases that kinda puts a damper on things... You kinda hoped that injury was behind him... I am sure it affected the team as well. Margo bouncing off the Green Giant just served as a reminder of how keeping healthy is too darn important. Corea... well.. clearly not 100%. Was weird seeing Yuli in such a slump and move around the lineup. The Machette was fun to watch when he'd pick somebody off... but not having McCann be healthy enough to be able to leverage his experience in those tight situations... well...

When folks said "they don't look like they want to win!"... well that kinda burns me a bit. Baseball is a game of managing stress... and there was a lot of stress on that team that you really just can't see from watching the post season. Nagging injuries... which caused a drastic yo-yo in team chemistry throughout the season does eventually catch up to you.
Yes sir well said. We will be back.

I saw the same being reported. That might get Morton resigned if his shoulder is in fact sound.

I guess next time Bregman will keep his mouth shut and stop posting crap on social media. Yes he is one of the best in the game, but this is MLB not the NFL! Stay humble and let your play do the talking.

Yep. I like Bregman the ballplayer but his ego got huge this season (maybe rightfully so). But you never, EVER do something like that to motivate the Red Sox. Maybe Hinch will keep a tighter leash on him next season.


So what do yíall think about Keuchel? Will they re-sign him? Or should they? He picked a bad year to falter so hard.

I think someone will throw stupid money at Keachel and we won't. So I think he will be gone
