MLB Bullets parties like it’s 1933

Washington makes their 1st World Series since the Senators in 1933. The Astros take a lead on the Yankees, but rain is in the forecast. MLB may test for opioids.

Congratulations to the Nationals, who won their first National League pennant in the 50-year history of the Expos/Nationals.

Also, this leaves the Seattle Mariners as the only MLB franchise to have not played in the World Series. The last time there was just one team who had never played in the Fall Classic was 1944, when the St. Louis Browns made their one and only World Series before moving to Baltimore.

Also, congratulations to the Fresno Grizzlies, whose parent club has now made the World Series five times in the last ten seasons. More impressively, that’s with three different affiliations (Giants, Astros, Nationals).

Also, just to let you know, it is very likely that today’s Game 4 of the American League Championship Series will be rained out.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster.
