There have been nearly 2,500 baseball games played since Opening Day. And the championship will be determined by one more game.
Game Seven is one of the most nerve-wracking, vomit-inducing, pants-removing experiences in sports. I still remember being at Kauffman Stadium five years ago (with a dent the size of several hundred dollars in my wallet) to watch Jeremy Guthrie win one more game for the Royals against a Giants team with Madison Bumgarner lurking in the background. While the Royals came up 90-feet short, it was still one of the most thrilling experiences of my life.
So buckle up Astros and Nats fans. With Max Scherzer facing Zack Greinke, with stars like Juan Soto, Jose Altuve, Anthony Rendon, Alex Bregman, Trea Turner, and George Springer thrilling us all week, this is bound to be a doozy.
