Outside The Confines: Georgia on my mind

The Braves are on the cusp of a World Series title, despite last night’s loss. Brian Snitker’s gut is a big reason why. The Astros need to hit. A look ahead at free agency. Some spooky baseball spots.

It was the one day a year that I’ll eat a candy bar—Game 5 of the World Series.

It’s really difficult getting a piece like this prepared for Monday morning not knowing if the results of Sunday night’s game makes half the stories you were planning on linking to out of date. But thanks to the Astros’ win in Game 5, I can still link to stories like “3 reasons the Astros can still rally.” Although one of those reasons, that Framber Valdez could pitch them to victory in Game 5, doesn’t look so hot right now.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster. We’ve got Game 6 tomorrow.
