Atlanta Braves are National League champions. Now this I can get on board with. Go Braves.

I don't suppose World Series is on council telly, or there is any way you can watch highlights for free without knowing result?

Also I don't really know anything about either team. Which are the baddies?

Highlights will be available on mlb.com and YouTube. Complete game replays may also be available on YouTube.

This link should get you to short (5 min) highlights by selecting ‘Recap’

https://www.mlb.com/live-stream-games?&affiliateId=mlbMENU

I’d say that both teams are the ‘baddies’. The Astros because of on-field reasons (history of cheating) and the Braves for off field reasons (unnecessary new ballpark, cultural appropriation, promoting anti-vaxxers)

There are usually 15-20 minutes highlights on You Tube and I can usually manage to avoid the result beforehand.

I just assume that for a lot of people it's a case of  anyone but Houston.  I have no dog in the fight my team for reasons I can't remember from many years back is Baltimore.  One day, one day.......

I'm afraid that the World Series is passing me by a bit.

I use to book time off work to watch, but can't rouse the enthusiasm these days.

Good story of the data analyst who spotted the 1919 baseball fix (UKR might know more about this)

Noticed that story on the Beeb website earlier but haven't read it yet

I have several books on the 'Black Sox' saga

Today, 15 years after his death, should be the day that Buck O’Neil is elected to the Hall of Fame.

Also good to see Tim Kurkjian honoured by the Hall of Fame

One of my favourite baseball writers and on-screen / radio personalities

https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/32813046/tim-kurkjian-hall-famer-here-makes-great


As part of an in-joke that rises to African Car Reverser levels, here's a compilation of clips from Kurkjian's radio appearances with the other great 'TK', Tony Kornheiser
