The Yankees are leaving a lot of runners on base.

Houston is winning by the long all, against the team with the second highest number of regular season home runs in history (if I remember what I read about that). Just goes to show, in the postseason, good pitching beats good hitting.

1. It's like they've been possessed by the Twins

(who had the most home runs). Understand if I see it as Karma.

4. Can't always swing for the fences in postseason

IMO that approach is disaster in a short series against a good team. Manufacture runs via small ball, though even that might not be possible against a team as deep as Houston. I believe the Astros are simply out-thinking everyone too -- scouting, analytics, coaching. They find a weakness and exploit it.

5. You are most likely right. Good organizations in any sport find a way to win,

and they are pretty strong at every level of the organization, owner(s), GM, Coach or Manager, position coaches, the overall caliber and cohesion of their players.
