Houston you are now a champion. The franchise that has been around since 1962 (same year as the Mets ) has finally won it’s first world championship. 5-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers in game 7 of a wild world series that was noted for its both high scoring game 13-12 win and it’s more traditional 3-1 victory. George Springer was award the MVP of the series 11-29 a 379 batting average 5 home runs and 7 runs batted in. The 5 homers tied a world series record with Reggie Jackson and Chase Utley.

This has to be especially nice for Carlos Beltran to possibly end his career with a championship. Finally. For Alex Cora who is moving on to become the Boston Red Sox  manager he can walk in to that clubhouse with even more cache. This is a feel good moment congratulations Houston after being flooded on and wipe out you got something to cheer about. Well done Astros!
