I dont know but either they were hiding how bad they suck really good or theyre choking. The White Sox are the better team but the Astros shoulda won today just didnt work out that way cause the best closers choked.

Now, you can go on and on about how im being a hater and yadda yadda but its clear. Someone people were calling the second best closer gets hit for the game winning homerun the first pitch he throws. The Qualls guy who was supposed to be a good one gets hit with a grand slam and there were just dumb plays being committed by the Astros. I think that pretty much explains why i say theyre choking
they may have expected them to do good but not one non-texan sports writer picked them to be in the world series. qualls was never a great closer, lidge was our only good closer but he hasn't been the same since he blew the lead in august against the cubs.
