World Series is Set: Houston Astros vs. Atlanta Braves

I have to pull for Atlanta here, a team that nobody expected to do anything in the postseason — and with the fewest wins in the regular season of any playoff team — but by executing better they have defeated all comers.

This is the ultimate beauty of tournaments and why I always watch them in any sport — nothing matters but execution. 

Reputation doesn’t matter, media attention doesn’t matter, having high-priced free agents and crazy levels of homegrown talent doesn’t matter — only execution matters. I’m speaking about the Dodgers here ... and for me, nothing is sweeter than watching such teams check out early. Buh-bye! Have fun writing those giant checks!

Also, I still haven’t moved on from Houston’s cheating scandal from 2019. Most likely never will. 

Game 1 & 2 in Houston the 26th and 27th, travel day the 28th.

Game 3, 4, & 5 in Atlanta the 29th, 30th, 31st, travel day Nov 1st.

Game 6 & 7 in Houston Nov 2nd and 3rd. 

All games start 7:00 CT.
