When will you break my heart again?

Postby DMXdawg » Sun Sep 05, 2004 12:21 am

Astros are now 2 games behind the cubs, and it's a real possibility that the cubs may have to play 26 games in 25 days which would make them tired in the last 10 games.

So they might make the wild card.
8 in a row, 10 of the last 11. Baseball's hottest team right now.

But, the Astros always choke. Whether in a pennant race or in the first round of the playoffs, they always know how to break you heart like that girl next girl.

I know. I'm going to keep expectations low this year. The Astros have lost Pettitte, Miller, and Everett. I am amazed they are even in a position to compete.

If they don't make the playoffs, I'll be happy they gave it their best. If they do make the playoffs, it's just gravy.

I can't believe you're playing the choke card. The only teams in front of the Stro's are the all-time #1 choke team (Cubs--see Bartman, billygoat, etc.) and #3 choke team (Giants--See 2002 WS, game 6).

The Stro's have a great chance of getting the wildcard spot from their current position.

Don't confuse chokes and curses..... ;-)

What if the curse is that you will always choke? I'm so confused...

1.5 behind the Cubbies/Giants now :)

Who's going to win the wild card?

Marlins?
Cubs?
Giants?
Mayhaps, even the Astros?

Next few games for the astros-

Series vs. Cin(3 games), @ Pit (4 games), @ STL(3 games, this is going to be painful :P) vs. Mil ( 3 games), @ SF(3 games), @ Mil (3 games), vs. Stl (3 games)
2nd easiest schedule
Cin, Pit, Mil have losing records: 13 games
SF, STL have winning records: 9 games
9 at home, 13 away

Cubs:
vs. Mon (3 games), vs Fla ( 3 games), vs Pit (3 games), @ Cin (4 games), @ Pit (3 games), @ NYM(3 games), vs. Cin ( 4 games)
easiest schedule
The thing working against the Cubs is that it seems like they may have to play 26 games in 25 days which is grueling, especially at the end of the season. However, their schedule looks favorable:

12 at home, 10 away

NYM, Mon, Pit, Cin have losing records, 16 games
Fla has a winning record, 6 games

Giants:

@COL (2), @ Ari (3),@ Mil (3) vs SD(3), vs HOU(3), vs LA(3), @ SD(3)

They may have the stoughest schedule
11 away, 9 home
Col, Ari, Mil having losing records, 9 games. v weak teams
Hou, LA, SD are tough teams, 11 games against them

Marlins: vs. NYM (3), @ CHC (6), vs Mon (4), vs ATL (3), vs PHI (3), @ ATL (3), @ MON (3), @ PHI (1)

Boy oh boy what a hard schedule. Might be as bad as the giants
Other than the mets and Mon (phillies are still a decent team IMO) they are playing hot teams

With Mets, Mon, Phi they play 14 games against teams with losing records (but Phillies are underachievers)

With Atl and CHC they play 12 games against hot teams

Not to mention they won't have any rest, they'll probably be as tired as the cubbies.

Who's gonna win?

Didn't the Astros get swept by the Braves in the first round of the playoffs two or three years ago? 8-o :-)
