Congratulations to the Houston Astros...

...on the best season in team history.

Although it ended in a loss in the World Series, it was still a magnificient season, and everyone in the organization - and all Houston fans - should be proud of this hard-working, never-say-die team.

Getting swept was a bit of an unfair result, in my opinion. Each of the games were extremely close, and were only decided by a total of six runs. Sure, I'm a homer, but I think the teams were quite evenly matched, and the White Sox simply took advantage of their opportunities much better than the Astros.

I was fortunate enough to be able to be at both Games 3 and 4 - and had an absolute blast, even in defeat. It was actually quite surreal to be at a World Series game - something that's been a dream since elementary school days - in the same ballpark that you've been to 50 other games at. It's all normal and ordinary and yet completely new and hard-to-believe.

Great season, and it's hard to be upset, even if the result was not ideal.
