COVID outbreaks, protocols, games in Dunedin and Buffalo... I've come around to the opinion that 2021 is really just another asterisk season - hope whoever wins enjoys their (wink) championship. Not bitter!

I'm rooting for the home plate umpire and childhood friend, Chris Conroy.
All accounts a good umpire!

Afraid to ask but is there any chance Acuna is addition by subtraction?

Astros are going to sweep this series. I don’t like either team but Houston is much stronger in every respect.

If that stat is true that these two managers have the oldest combined age in the history of the World Series, it’s quite amazing at one level because there have been tons of old managers in these games.At another level that’s another reason to be concerned about the state of major league baseball in 2021.
I would have guessed Trader Jack and Torre as the oldest combined in 2003.

What’s the concern about having old managers?
