If the Giants were hoping to win the World Series at home, the Royals had a different plan. In the best of seven series, Kansas City took a 2-1 lead after edging San Francisco 3-2 for the win tonight.

Some folks say baseball has nothing to do with race relations in St Louis, but as a native St. Louisan, I beg to differ.
The heavily favored Dodgers, Angels, Nationals, and Tigers were quickly eliminated in favor of the Cardinals, Royals, Giants, and Orioles. If big money was the key to winning in the playoffs, different teams would have won.
Political polarization is worse than ever this fall, with contests being framed as a struggle between virtue and vice, strength and weakness.
If Major League Baseball wants to keep winning fans back, and promote good sportsmanship, they'll do the little things like this.
What are the numbers?
My wife and I -- especially my wife -- have been shocked at the proliferation of long shaggy beards obscuring the faces of baseball players.
Thanks to Matt Kemp and his beautiful, empathetic swing, we still have the Dodgers. At least for another day or two. Let's see what the Gods have in store for them in Game 3 in St. Louis Monday. Hold your breath, LA, it might be another lesson in... humility.
