Until the Texans can consistently win the games they’re supposed to win on top of picking up big wins like their one last week over the Patriots, not only should the national media not take the Texans seriously as a contender, but neither should anyone else.
Dating back to his National Championship appearances as the leader of the Clemson Tigers, and even his high school career, Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson just seems to be at his best when the stage is at its grandest, and that trend continued Sunday at NRG Stadium as he led the wa…
Astros manager A.J. Hinch’s decision to remove starting pitcher Zack Greinke from the game after the slightest couple of stumbles will be looked upon as what cost them the 2019 Fall Classic.
The Houston Astros’ offense had perhaps its worst performance at their home ballpark in a series where its already had some really bad ones.
Facing dire straits after losing their first two games at home, the Houston Astros pulled off the highly unlikely, becoming road warriors to sweep the Washington Nationals at their home park and regain control of the 2019 World Series.
Tied 2-2, the 2019 World Series becomes a best-of-three series, and, despite their previous performances, the Astros can feel confident with dual aces Gerrit Cole and Justin Verlander set to start on the hill for the next two games to potentially take it back — a World Series title, that is.

Seeing the Houston professional athletes support each other is always great to see. What would be even better, though, is if the Texans could manage replicate the Astros’ winning mentality and killer instinct.
By now, it’s obvious second baseman Jose Altuve was born for October. His walk-off two-run home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning delivered the ALCS-clinching Game 6 win, 6-4, over the New York Yankees on Saturday night at Minute Maid Park.
The Astros are going with their best option available to start Game 4 of the ALCS, right here and right now. The attitude of not looking too far ahead and focusing on winning the next game in front of them is the correct way to go.
The Astros can now easily survive dropping Game 1, after coming back to take Game 2 for the home split. Just last year, the Astros won Game 1 of the ALCS in Boston, and, unfortunately, we all know how that turned out here in Houston.
It’s difficult to remember a time when Astros’ batters last looked this lame and lifeless. Give credit to the Yankees pitchers and defense; they went out and achieved what seemed like the impossible — they completely shut down the Astros’ ballyhooed offense.
