It's only an avatar if the Cubs get swept.





Here we are at the end. Two teams remain after a long war called October Baseball. Many people would have preferred a meteor hit all 10 teams that qualified for a shot of the "piece of metal," but nonetheless, one series remains to crown the victor. Let's meet our teams:

American League Champions: Houston Astros
The Astros annoy me for sure. Yes it's been 5 years. Yes only 4 guys from that core remain. But my main gripe is that with their consecutive postseason berths, an iron fortress atop the AL West division, and their third World Series appearance since they won* back in 2017, they didn't need to cheat. They're that good. However, it feels like MLB either wants the whole cheating thing swept up nice and tidy under the rug or for this year to be Houston's Big Fat Redemption Tour so there's a sour taste in the air. On the other hand, veteran manager Dusty Baker did finally make it to the Series for the the first time since winning as a player way back in 1981, so him finally tasting glory as a manager would be nice.

National League Champions: Atlanta Braves
The Braves have been an odd bunch this year. Before the Break, the entire NL East was on fire, with the Braves' chance at the postseason drat near impossible. They even lost the hosting gig of the All Star Break. Everyone thought they should sell or at least recoop their losses after losing key players due to injury, but somehow, they persisted, and that seems to be their theme this year. That or, "we might be those motherfuckers," as quoted by pearl wearing, wine glass clutching, no fucks giver Joc Pederson. It took an odd bunch to make it to the Braves' first World Series appearance since 1999, so maybe it'll take an odd bunch to win it all.

Soler went straight back into the leadoff spot, again if the Braves make any offensive substitutions other than Gore pinch running very late in the game, something has gone badly wrong

Iíve never really gotten the Joe Buck hate. Heís always just seemed like kinda boring white noise to me, which I donít really mind. Easy to tune out. I absolutely hate it when announcers get excited.
