- The Astros have a great young team. They built their team through the Minor League system. Keuchel and Correa, Altuve, they're special players. But I believe Tanaka gets them off to a great start. Tonight, they ride this momentum of getting into-- not only winning this playoff series after being down 0-2, but they win in six games, and they go to the World Series.
- Pressure is on the home team.
SHANNON SHARPE: Yep.
- On the Astros, who beat the Yankees five of seven times during the regular season. And I'm with you. I said earlier in the show, I like the hopeless underdog here, the cuddly little Yankees. Who knew? I'm going to go Yankees in six also because Tanaka gets them off to the right start tonight. He was dominant in game three against the Indians, and he'll be dominant again against that line-up tonight.
SHANNON SHARPE: Can we get Sonny Gray to give us something?
- Vanderbilt University, gives you a lot.
- No, no, we pushed him back.
- Every time I look up--
- Somebody pushed him back. They're going Tanaka, Severino, CC, then Gray. If he was all that, he'd be up first.
