World Series Game 7 was the most stressful 5-1 baseball game possible – SB Nation

Posted: Thursday, November 02, 2017

Looking at it from the outside, World Series Game 7 was an easy win for the Astros. If you match it up with almost any other game in the series, it was practically a cakewalk. Of course each player gave all of the effort they possessed to make sure they won, grinding out plays in the infield and running out every last inch. But in the grand scheme of things,…

Posted: Thursday, November 02, 2017

The Astros’ hopes for a Game 7 blowout stalled when the Dodgers quickly lifted starter Yu Darvish, who faced just 10 batters and allowed half of them to score. After that, the pitchers on both sides took over, making for a tense finale, if not a classic, in the first World Series Game 7 ever held at Dodger Stadium, the third-oldest venue in the majors. The Astros had never even…

Dodgers and Astros Arrive at a Newly Popular Destination: Game 7 – New York Times

Posted: Thursday, November 02, 2017

For historical resonance, nothing could have topped last year, when the Chicago Cubs won their first championship since 1908 against a Cleveland Indians team that had the second-longest title drought, dating to 1948. That series went seven games, with the Cubs blowing a late lead but prevailing, after a rain delay, in the 10th inning. Now, another Series between two desperate teams has gone all the way. The Dodgers are…

A history of truly absurd (and possibly true) baseball conspiracy theories – GolfDigest.com

Posted: Tuesday, October 31, 2017

If Twitter’s number-crunching coalition of baseball apologists are to be believed, the 2017 World Series has been not only one of the best in recent memory, but the best ever. Full stop. When things go “right” in post-PED baseball, however, the question is always “what’s the catch?”, and in the case of this year’s moonshot-pocked Fall Classic, the answer is the same no matter who you ask: Juiced baseballs. Baseballs…

But is there any other middle-of-the-lineup combination in baseball you’d rather have right now — and in whose future you’d invest — than the Astros’ Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa? Especially when you consider their defensive value?…
