The Astros were obviously not intimidated by the "wild" Yankees.
Carlos Correa and Alex Bregman were chatty after the Astros' 6-4 ALCS win over the New York Yankees on Saturday night in Houston.
"It's a great series. We knew they had a great team, "Astros says briefly to ESPN's Buster Olney ." As they call themselves, they are savages. But in this jungle called the American League, we are the top predator. "
As for Bregman, the third baseman said he knew he wasn't going to play baseball on Sunday.
" We got to this morning, when we woke up, we would watch football tomorrow, "says Alex Bregman Brian McTaggart Astros reporter beat MLB.com
Jose Altouve, who killed the Yankees during their playoff battles, was more humble after the his Chelsea homer at the bottom of the ninth has sent the Asters to their second World Series in the last three years.
"I have encountered Aroldis Chapman, [who] one of the best closing leagues in the league," Altue tells The Post. "Nothing's easy with him. I just hit a homer and I hope I don't run into him again because he's so good. But at the same time, I just thought something I could drive, I got game plan, I wasn't trying to hit a homer. I just thought I'd hit the ball hard, get on the base and keep the momentum. Thank God the ball came out and we won the game. ”
