The Houston Astros are still waiting to find out their opponent for the ALCS as the Cleveland Guardians and New York Yankees finish up their ALDS series. Houston took care of business against the Seattle Mariners over the weekend. Meanwhile, Cleveland and New York’s series will be decided in game 5. Astros’ star pitcher Justin Verlander compared the Astros’ current situation to “a cram session for a test the next day,” per Danielle Lerner.

Scouting one’s opponent is a crucial aspect of the MLB playoffs. But the Astros currently have to prepare for both the Yankees and the Guardians until a winner is finally decided. It should be noted that the ALDS would have been decided on Monday had the game not been postponed due to rain.
