Ep 97: Astros ALCS Postmortem
In episode 97, Jeff Balke and Geoff Blum begin to dig into the dirty work of figuring out what happened to the Astros, who lost to the Rangers in game 7 of the ALCS on Monday night. Rangers were really good. Jose Altuve and Yordan Alvarez were also, but not Kyle Tucker or Jeremy Peña. Is Minute Maid Park a real problem? Will Dusty Baker retire? What's next for this team in the offseason. We mournfully discuss.
