The Houston Astros probably expected to face the Toronto Blue Jays in the American League Division Series in 2023. The Blue Jays may have been the No. 6 seed entering the postseason, but they were matched up against the Minnesota Twins, a team with an 18-game postseason losing streak that had won the weakest division in baseball with two fewer wins than the Blue Jays had managed to claim their Wild Card berth.
The Twins stepped up, forcing away the demons of past playoff appearances to sweep the Blue Jays in two games and set up a Division Series clash with the No. 2 seed in the American League. The series begins on Saturday, with the Astros hosting at Minute Maid Park. The second game is at the same venue on Sunday, and we at Immortal Seats have tickets for that playoff game starting at an astonishingly low $48. It is a wild deal, especially as the 90-game-winning Astros are expected to mount a serious postseason challenge this fall.
