Astros Fans Waited A Decade For This Celebration Making The ALDS

It was way back in 2005 the last time the Astros made the playoffs and got to play in the National League Division Series [NLDS] as at that time the Houston Astros were in the National League.   That was back when there was only one Wild Card and the Wild Card team was automatically in the League Division Series.  With this year of 2 Wild Card teams the Astros being the Wild Card team #2 had to play a one game winner take all against the New York Yankees at Yankees Stadium for a right to go to the ALDS. 

Dallas 'the beard' Keuchel shuts out Yankees in 6 gutsy innings

With pitcher Dallas Keuchel pitching on only three days rest, he pitched a gutsy 6 innings of shutout baseball and the bullpen came through to complete the shutout as the Astros won 3-0 and now are headed to Kansas City to start the ALDS in a best of 5 series.  

Congratulations, Houston Astros for making Houston proud! 

As long as we have waited here in H-Town, and for these young guys to come through and make us proud, I say no matter how far we go, we should have a parade for them, no matter when it ends.
