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.

Sportsman of the Week Ending 10/22/2023


What a week of League Championship Series action in Major League Baseball with road teams dominating, especially on the American League side of the ledger.  In a Lone Star showdown the Texas Rangers faced off against the defending World Series Champion Houston Astros in a back yard brawl.  The Rangers came out on top, thanks to their defacto ace Nathan Eovaldi.  Facing the Astros for the fifth time at Minute Maid Park, he extended his prior success to end the Astros reign.  Eovaldi won two starts at Minute Maid Park in Games 2 and 6.  12 2/3 innings, 10 hits, and 5 runs with 13 K.  He wasn't perfect, but his team staked him to early leads and he knew what to do with them.  Those two wins at the Juice Box propelled the Rangers to their first World Series in 12 years, looking for their first title in franchise history.
