SPANISH HARLEM – This series couldn’t have started better from a Yankees standpoint. The Houston Astros were [not] fresh off a 5-game win over the Tampa Bay Rays, and came into game one of the ALCS looking off.

SWEEPSVILLE, NYC: The Browns vs Niners game was brutal, so I stuck with baseball. I thought you said these weren’t the same old Twins?  Seven runs in three games – I think they’re quite similar.
