Game one was a lot of fun (maybe less fun if you are an Astros’ fan). If you like home runs and comeback wins, it was a great night.

It will be fun if a team that wouldn’t have made the playoffs in any past year wins the World Series. I’ll admit I’m not a fan of letting more teams into the playoff. Watering down the quality of the teams in the playoffs seems a bad idea to me. But money talks. More teams in the playoffs, more money for MLB. And MLB will do anything for an extra dollar.
