After a week off, baseball returns tonight with Game 1 of the World Series. Had the Yankees advanced, the game would have been played at Yankee Stadium, but of course, the Yankees did not bother to win a game in the ALCS. Instead, we get a juggernaut vs. underdog matchup, with the playoff-unbeaten Astros facing off with the equally hot Phillies.
If you don’t want to think about another World Series without the Yankees, we’ve got plenty to distract on the site, with the exception of Josh’s World Series preview this morning. Elsewhere, Hayes will go deep on Oswaldo Cabrera’s defense, Peter ruminates on the pleasures of divesting from sports at times, Andres discusses the uncertain future of Gleyber Torres, and Madison delivers the answers to this week’s mailbag.
