It’s so hard not to feel sorry for the Yankees and their fans. It’s hard because we understand what they’re going through. We’ve been there. We’ve done that.
The Yankees put up an epic battle and, just like us one year ago almost to the day, they’re crying in their spilled milk, sad that their season has ended and they have to wait until Spring Training 2020 to see their boys on the field again.
"“No matter how many games we won in the regular season, this is a failure,” Aaron Judge said, in the middle of the despair. “I think about the season as a whole, guys getting injured, guys getting back, a lot of ups and downs, I think about missed opportunities and some guys I might not play with again …” (New York Post, Mike Vaccaro)"
But we’re Houston Proud and we’re Texas Strong. We love our team because they love us. We honor them and this game called baseball and we are not rubbing it in the faces of the Yankees or their fans.
Congratulations Yankees, on a battle well fought and on a season worthy of history for the game and for your franchise. Thank you Yankees, for the fight. Thank you for a good ride. Thank you for the thrill called October baseball.
For the Houston Astros, however, it’s not over. We’re at the hairpin turn of this ride and we’re coming up to meet the Nationals. The Nationals, with pitching and hitting and fans pumped for their first-ever WS appearance. It is going to be an epic ride and a hard-fought battle.
Bring it on, boys. The Houston Astros and the fans are ready to meet the problem called the Washington Nationals.
