A World Series between the two best teams in baseball certainly has had its share of star turns, and the matchup has not disappointed thus far. News from that series, and the rest of the league, to start your Sunday!

In playoff news...

  • Here’s our official recap of last night’s INSANE finish to the Dodgers-Rays game, with Tampa tying the series at 2-2.
  • The walk off was something most of us have never seen before.

In Mariners news...

  • Here’s a nice highlight of Noelvi Marte against 19 year old LHP Jesus Gonzalez, crushing a home run on a hung changeup while showcasing a shorter, smoother leg kick and swing.
  • Yesterday’s game went well for Marte too, it seems.
  • Congratulations to former Mariners All-Star Jose Lopez on his 2000th career hit.

Around the league...

  • Black players in MLB have long had a unique relationship with one another, heavily relying on direct mentorship to navigate the challenges they can face. That hasn’t changed during the pandemic. (NYT $)
  • The Yankees appear on track for a payroll cut, as they appear willing to accept just being another regular contender with their Evil Empire juggernaut days fading further into the rearview.
  • As Justin Turner has another dominant postseason, the Mets find themselves lamenting yet another One Who Got Away.
  • The Angels are continuing their search for a new GM, reportedly considering former Marlins exec Michael Hill.
  • Mookie Betts is having an electric postseason, but league-wide, GMs understandably still prefer Mike Trout to the only player who has come close to approaching the production of the Fish King in the past half-decade.
  • The Astros took another blow to their pitching staff, which will now be without Justin Verlander and Josh James for most or all of the 2021 season.
