When I last addressed you on Friday, we were discussing how much trouble the Houston Astros were in after dropping the first two games of the World Series at home.

Yeah, about that . . . The Astros went through Washington like the British in 1814.

Most of the baseball stories published on Friday or Saturday are now obsolete on Monday thanks to the Astros winning all three games in DC. It seems silly to link to a piece on how Gerrit Cole has to step it up after Sunday night’s game. There are lots of pieces like that.

I have power in California, but my local NBC affiliate is off the air because of a power shutdown. If it had been my local Fox affiliate, there would have been problems.

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