No baseball for anyone today, apologies for the inconvenience.

The World Series is tied at one apiece, thanks to the Astros responding to the dominant Braves opening win with a similar performance in Game 2. Both teams will travel to Atlanta today, and thus we won’t have any baseball on hand for the day. The NFL has you covered if you need some primetime action, though, and the NBA is getting into the swing of things as well. The Knicks are even doing pretty good out of the gates, and have a surprisingly hype October game playing the undefeated Chicago Bulls. Lots of options to fit your sports need.

Over on the Yankees front, things are pretty much the same old, same old. Our docket for content today starts with Jon examining how the Yankees’ prestigious power didn’t extend to extra-base hits in general this year. Jesse delivers the report card on Aroldis Chapman, John opines on the illusion of parity that MLB is toting, and Matt looks back at the best World Series “cameos” that the Yankees have gotten — players who made the most out of having just one opportunity to influence the series.

Fun Questions:

1. How competitive do you see MLB’s title chase as compared to other leagues?

2. Will the Mets’ front office saga end before the Winter Meetings?
