"The Astros were 36-17 at home when it was closed during the regular season, 15-11 when it was rolled back and 2-0 in games that began indoors and finished in fresh air."
"During the regular season, the Astros pick their environment. But during the postseason, the commissioner's office makes that call."
Frankly, MLB should not decide what the Astros's should do! It's intrusive to tell them not to raise their own roof! -What's next? Will they demand that the fans remain quiet and not cheer for their team?
I personally want to see how the White Sox play in such a hostile environment, where the crowds cheer echoes all over one's bones... where the ball carries a bit further when the roof is raised.... where Houston would really have a home field advantage! I'm rooting for the Sox, but I want to see a great game first and foremost.... This decision by MLB is bordering in ridiculous!
