that was a pretty good game in a pretty decent series that felt like play-off ball.

A little heart-pounding.

While not the weekend series I might have hoped for, effective overall.

Not sure I liked the call on the play at the plate.

Yeah...AL playoffs will be awesome this year, whether we see A's or Yanks joining Astros and Indians.

Had my +250 bet on HOU from preseason so I will stay with that.

A little heat-pounding at the right times is ok.

I would have liked to see the Sox win 2 of 3, but all 3 of those games were in play to the end.

It was good stuff.

The takeaway though was slight edge Astros, and mostly because the bullpen.

I hope they're the ALCS match-up

I'm pretty sure I had a Astros-Nats or Cubs WS, with Astros repeating.

Probably a matter of knowing how to act.

Sox with some late inning lightning notch win #99

last time Sox won 99 games was in '78.

Yankees followed that with a loss. '78 is getting further out of the thoughts of even the most paranoid RS fans.

Not over, yet, but it doesn't feel the same.

agreed it doesn't feel like '78

just brought uo '78 for the high-water 99 wins in my (as far as I know all here) life-time.

ftr was lucky enough to see the '78 99th in person, probably the most electrifying game I ever saw

Feels like '75

7-8 game lead all through August.  Got down to 5 by 8/10 and as low as 3.5, closest Orioles got

Of course at that time there wasnt the cushion of making the WC.  And we had to beat just the one team (A's) - not 2 (likely Yanks and Astros) to get to the Series.

Eddie Armbrister.  OUCH.

or to date, maybe like '07, got out of the gate fast, and held the lead to the finish.

stress level so far has been low

bigger ouch in '75 came from Vern Ruhle

and screw Larry Barnett
