Wild World Series is Going 7!
This World Series has been the most intense 7 games of baseball I have ever seen and I don't even have a horse in the race. Thank god I have been able to watch every heart racing game. Tomorrow I have an engagement that will keep me away from home until 10pm my time, so hopefully nothing happens until the late innings. I want Verlander to get a ring and don't want Chase Utley to so that is why I am rooting for Houston. Here are some thoughts on what I have seen:
Joc Pederson is going to get a ball in his ear very soon. Especially if game 7 turns into a blowout. I used to be a fan of the kid but on his last two homeruns he acted like they were walk-offs. Both were relatively meaningless. I see Correa and Altuve celebrate like maniacs but at least their hits mattered and they kept their celebrations for the instant reaction on the way to first and after they crossed the plate. Not parading around the whole diamond dancing like a clincher. Very disappointed.
Fransisco Liriano should have pitched by now. I have been a big Liriano fan since his rookie year but why throw Gregerson who looks like he has a knuckleballer delivery and shows the ball way too much to be successful and leave Liriano in the 'pen when he has valuable experience?
Where is Josh Reddick?! He's been decent defensively but just has not shown up at the plate. He is an automatic out. I keep waiting for him to bust out...and waiting....and waiting...
The Astros WILL Win Game 7!
I like Lance McCullers and I think he has a great career ahead of him. I hope he is able to pitch above the moment and dominate for 5 or 6 innings. I am NOT a Dallas Keuchel fan. I would rather see Verlander come out of the 'pen and throw underhand than have Dallas throw gas on a fire. If we see him pitch in game 7 its because the game is over or will be soon.
