^Man, you're getting to witness in person some of the best World Series baseball imaginable.

I went to bed when it went into the 10th, but I'm sort of regretting it.

How did they even manage to get the WS MVP on this cover?

Gods, this team was so good.

JV has a ring, and thus the 2017 Tigers season is slightly vindicated.

Happy for Houston and for you, Deku. There's definitely gonna be a 30 for 30 on this team someday--"What if I told you that a hurricane...[clip reel]...would blow a team all the way to be World Champions? [clip reel]"

Jose Altuve is a big damn hero.

The pitching matchups in this World Series are unreal.

If the Nationals win, then the Tigers entire 2013 starting rotation will have rings with other teams

Knowing that we went on to win, I kinda dig that Altuve was the one to wrap that game up rather than Osuna.

I'm going to Game 1 Tuesday. Cole will be pitching for sure, but they haven't announced the Nationals starter. I'm really hoping I get to witness a Cole vs. Scherzer WS matchup.

I fly out for vacation the next morning at like 7. I'll be on the west coast, so the rest of the series is gonna seem really early.

Meanwhile I'm sitting here after watching my team have one of the best postseason games ever in the NLDS, only to get swept in the NLCS.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

That was my favorite HR since Gurriel took Kershaw deep in Game 5.

Might get your wish. Scherzer was scratched from the start today.

But apparently Scherzer is being saved for Game 7, if it happens.

They played the better series. Really wanted it for Greinke, though.
