Subject: In ALCS, Yankees against Astros is a collision of extreme power against extreme power

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

If the game of baseball has entered some new evolutionary realm this season, populated by flame-throwing pitchers and all-or-nothing sluggers who together pushed home run and strikeout totals to record highs, the Houston Astros and New York Yankees represent its pinnacle — the most highly evolved species

This post, I fear, will offer little solace to all those Washington Nationals fans currently reeling after the club's crushing and epically odd loss to the Chicago Cubs in Game 5 of the NLDS on Thursday night. On the Cubs' radio broadcast, Len Kasper referred to Chicago's four-run fifth inning
