    If the Astros give Soto a strike to hit for the rest of the Series they deserve to lose.

    3 for 4. 3 RBI and a run scored. Dude is dialed in.

    The Nationals aren't this good of a team but I kind of hope they win the series. Partially to knock the Astros down and partially because I hate Bryce Harper and them winning it without him would be fantastic.

    This is where I am.

    I love that they got better once that dude left the team. Easily the most overrated and overpaid player in baseball. Addition by subtraction.

    Seattle Mariners Fans Unsure Why Some Teams Still Playing Baseball In October

    Seattle Mariners fans across the country reported their confusion after discovering that some teams still play baseball well into October.

    Puzzled fans saw a game in the World Series being played on television.

    "The season's been over for a solid month," said one man in Seattle as he caught the game at Applebee's. "Is this a rerun or something?" He eventually concluded that the teams must just be playing for fun. "Fools!" he chuckled. "They need to rest up an extra month for next season, like the Mariners do every year."

    The strange occurrence gave fans an idea though: perhaps the MLB could have some kind of playoffs or postseason where teams that did well enough in the regular season could compete for a championship.

    "It's not a bad idea, an extra month of baseball," said one woman who's somehow a Mariners fan despite there being dozens of other teams to choose from. "You could do an elimination-style tournament with the final two teams remaining competing for the top prize."

    "It would be a series to discover the best team in the world. Not sure what we would call it though."

    At first I was like "why is it a big deal that he screamed 'thank god we got Osuna' to a bunch of female reporters?"

    Then I read that Osuna had been disciplined in the past for domestic violence.

    Unbelievably stupid lol

    This is what I expected in game 1.

    The Astros are by no means out of the woods yet, but they're playing much better than they were the first two games.

    Anyone catch the boob flash last night? I missed it but have since watched. Very nice.

    I really hope this becomes a thing.
