Tonight begins the first game of the World Series. Woohoo! Playing tonight are the Washington Nationals, the Wild Card winner out of the National League, and the Houston Astros, the best team in baseball.

I hope you like starting pitching, because this series is gonna be a doozy. Let’s just say that it’s a nonzero chance that three future Hall of Famers are gonna play. Tonight’s matchup? Oh, just the best pitcher in baseball at the moment against perhaps the best pitcher of the last decade. No biggie.
