The Houston Astros are 7-0 in the postseason so far, sweeping the Seattle Mariners and the New York Yankees in the Division and Championship Series, respectively.
They are viewed as the clear favorites to win the World Series against the Philadelphia Phillies.
The team, the city, and the fans are hyped and they proved it with a recent video the Astros’ official Twitter account posted.

The video has some of the best and most exciting plays and highlights from the regular season and the postseason.
However, it also sends an important message to everybody: the job is not finished.
It’s important for the Astros to maintain their focus and not let any perceived (and questionable, too) superiority distract them from the objective.
They have been perceived as favorites before, in 2019 against the Washington Nationals and perhaps in 2021, too, against the Atlanta Braves, and lost both series.
The Astros Have Played Excellent Baseball, But The Job Is Not Finished
Playoff baseball is about executing and minimizing mistakes, and so far the Astros have done that and more.
If they keep playing at such a high level, they will be in a good position to bring back the trophy to Houston.
You can see in the video how the fans and the entire city are all in.
They are involved and invested in the Astros’ World Series run.
The team is looking better than ever, but they have one last obstacle: the Philadelphia Phillies.
Despite their mediocre 87-75 regular season record, the Phils have caught fire in the playoffs, where they are 9-2.
They are capable of taking down the best teams in the league, and Houston is no exception.
May the best team win.
