What makes the Houston Astros’ 6-2 loss to the Washington Nationals in Game 7 of the World Series on Wednesday night at Minute Maid Park is that one managerial decision, in large part, led to Astros’ fans’ agony and created a lifetime of what-ifs.

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, as well as the chance to go down as the greatest team in franchise history. It wouldn’t be an entirely unfair notion.
