Over the coming days and weeks, baseball historians and commentators will debate the merits of the 2017 World Series and put it in its proper place in history. Was it the best ever, or the third, fifth or seventh? That's a matter of personal opinion, and something that can be discussed on social media or neighborhood barstools across America for fans who are so inclined.
Maybe Sports Illustrated should start predicting the stock market. The magazine anointed the Houston Astros as YOUR 2017 WORLD SERIES CHAMPS -- more than three years ago. It may not seem like a bold pick the day after the young and talented Astros upset the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 7 to win the first title in franchise history. But in June 2014, when SI put the team on its cover, readers probably thought they were crazy. The Astros, the worst team in baseball the previous season, were in last place.

And over the past eight nights, in sharing the field for the 113th World Series, they've lived up to their billing and packed some of everything into six heart-stopping games.
Wednesday was most definitely not just another night at the old ballyard. The festivities of Game 2 of the World Series started with Vin Scully inviting Fernando Valenzuela to throw out the first pitch and ended with Chris Devenski striking out Yasiel Puig in a nine-pitch battle to give the Houston Astros a 7-6 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers in 11 innings. The rest of the game was so completely insane and ridiculous that you wouldn't believe what happened if you didn't watch it.
The data showed the obvious about Astros hitters through five games of the American League Championship Series against the Yankees: they were chasing bad pitches.
Getting shut down by the Dodgers' ace is one thing, but the Astros' MLB-best offense must snap its postseason road slump for Houston to have a chance.
