Who am I?
I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.
The first full week of Major League Baseball playoffs produced nailbiting games and surprise teams. One of them was the Houston Astros, who stormed through the American League Wild Card game and surged to a 2-1 lead against the 2014 American League champion Kansas City Royals. And two of the three wins were attributable to probable AL Cy Young Award winner Dallas Keuchel. The only 20-game winner in the American League shut down the New York Yankees (on short rest) with 6 innings of only 3 hits, no runs. On full rest in NLDS Game 3, he allowed but a run in seven innings on four hits in a victory against the Kansas City Royals. For the week, 2-0, 0.69 ERA, below 1.0 WHIP and 14 K in 13 innings. The Houston Astros future is bright, thanks to our Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
