Another 2 runners stranded.

At least make this into a game.

It can't end like this.

I'm not really a fan but after what I learned about Darvish. They deserve to lose.

A few years ago Charlie Morton changed his delivery to look exactly like Doc Halladay, He looks a little different now but you can still see bits of his delivery are like Doc's

Game 7 has been a let down, not fitting of the other six games...single-handedly ruining the whole series.

Last year's Game 7 was wayyyyy better. Haha.

They just never should have started Darvish. I had been saying to my buddy, they should start Alex Wood.

Congrats to Houston on an excellent memorable World Series, hard fought against Dodgers. Dodgers laid a dud in the last game at home, but Houston deserves it, they are the better team.

I obviously missed something. What is the deal with Darvish that makes you hate the whole team?

Towards more on management, poor decision.

Coaching and coaching decisions have very little impact on the actual outcome of a game especially when you consider hindsight.

Bellinger made such a stupid play in the first inning that just changed the whole momentum of the game... easy grounder to 2nd basemen.. instead he plays it from 1B more than half way to second and then does a terrible throw to Darvish...

it should have been 1 out and a guy on 3rd.. and Darvish may have been able to get out of the inning only giving up the run from 3rd and thats it... instead it was 2-0 and they were on their heels...

It's not a stupid play at all, in baseball your taught if you can make the play- range wise- you go for it.

They were playing Bregman to hit up the middle and Bellinger wasn't holding anyone on 1st - so he was shifted towards 2B and the ball was hit just to his right, it was makeable play especially for a lefty because he just needs to field it and turn and throw to 1st, but not routine. In the end it would have saved 1 run - not the difference in the game.

Sports Illustrated’s 2014 Cover Story Predicting the Astros as 2017 World Series Champs




"Amazingly prescient. They even chose George Springer for the photo — who hit five home runs in the World Series to run away with the MVP. Words I never expected to type: the Houston Astros are indisputably the best team in baseball."
