Astros win NL pennant, goodbye to Busch Stadium

Roy Oswalt and the Houston bullpen dominated tonight, with the Cardinals getting just four hits, and the Houston Astros head to the World Series following a 5-1 win, beating the Cardinals, four games to two.

So here we are with a World Series starting Saturday night, Astros at White Sox. Who'da thunk it? Likely matchup for game one is Clemens v. Contreras. I'm rooting for the Stros on account of Biggio and Bagwell, but really I just hope it's a good series, and it should be.

Congrats to the Astros and their fans.
