The Astros don’t get their asses kicked nearly enough, and it’s a damn shame. Perhaps the tenor of the 2022 playoffs would have been better if the Mariners finished the job in ALDS Game 1, but alas. Since neither they nor the Yankees could figure out how to embarrass the ‘Stros, the task has fallen to the Phillies. After a beautiful 7-0 shutout with homers from each of Bryce Harper, Kyle Schwarber, Rhys Hoskins, Brandon Marsh, and Alec Bohm, they’re up 2-1 in the World Series. It might be dreaming for too much to see them win both tonight and tomorrow and end this before the Fall Classic has a chance to return to Houston, but we can hope!
Today on the site, Peter will recap the World Series Game 3 action, Sam will offer some mid-Fall Classic reactions, and John will handle Andrew Benintendi’s report card. Later on, John will return to discuss what the Yankees’ mindset should be this winter and Jeff will detail five offseason priorities.
