The Astros are the scariest team I can remember, and this series could be a classic

I don’t believe in God, but I’m afraid of him. And the only thing I’m more afraid of than God is these Astros.

Okay that’s not *entirely* true. The prospect of being underwater in 12 years scares me quite a bit. Lightning also sucks. But as far as baseball teams go, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more terrifying team than the defending World Series champion, who saunter into Fenway Park looking to upend the Red Sox’s historic regular season with a dose of playoff reality. Again.

They did it last year in four games, with the fourth one so close it felt like four and a half.
