Astros And Yankees Are Highly Regarded

February 28, 2018

Before the 2017 season, both eventual ALCS participants, the Houston Astros and New York Yankees were not regarded all that highly.

Both teams had failed to make the ‘offs in 2016, after Houston had “5 to 4 teams left gamed” the Yankees in 2015.

The eventual champion Royals, then added to the Astros’ history of excruciating post-season losses, beating Houston in the “quarters.”

Last season Houston won it all, while the Yankees projected to be around a break even team, had a great spring training season and made it to game 7 of the ALCS, before Houston defeated them.

This season the Astros are projected to win 96 plus games and the Yankees’ mark is set at 94 plus.

Thus far, each team is undefeated in “board” exhibition games, the Yankees (5-0) and Houston (4-0).
