Re. Tucker "The reason he has become better this season is because he has become a better hitter".

Thanks for that insight.

Hope it's not too soon to discuss games 3-5...When Houston goes to Atlanta, there's no DH. You have to think that Alvarez has to be in the lineup since he is hitting a ton. The only place he's played is LF. Can't take Brantley or Tucker out of the lineup, so McCormick sits. None of these 3 guys are Center Fielders, Brantley hasn't played there since 2015 and Tucker has 5 career games playing CF. I guess Brantley goes to right and Tucker to center. Regardless, someone is out of position, and that may be a factor when the series shifts to Atlanta.
I think this guy had a premonition about tonight.

Pretty fun article about Ian Anderson in The Athletic today.

I think my favorite part was this, about his MLB debut:

Meanwhile, the Anderson family was on vacation in Myrtle Beach, scrambling to find a workaround since the game was blacked out on MLB.TV there.
At least it's not just us who hate blackouts!

Does anyone even care about the World Series? Just turned on MLB.TV and they are replaying the game from two days ago. ESPN Sportscenter right now and they are almost 10 minutes into their mid-day broadcast and they haven't even mentioned it.

ESPN.com has no mention of baseball on their homepage.

ESPN is thoroughly tied in financially to the NBA, CFB, and the NFL and not to MLB. As for Sportscenter, that could be that there was no game yesterday in addition to the financial reasons.
