Monday Morning Hot Links

Congratulations to this guy, who won the World Series MVP last night. If you weren't watching the World Series this year, try not to be so petty next year and enjoy the sport, because it was fun to watch.

Also congrats to J.D. Martinez, who I loved ever since he hit 4 home runs in his first 6 games in 2011 as an Astro and said he was going to go to the Hall of Fame. It may end up being a Hall of Famer, but we will remember that at his peak he was one of the best hitters in baseball. He deserves this.

A.J. Hinch had some thoughts about his buddy Alex Cora last night after the game. I am also happy for him but not as much because he already won it with us and I am not nearly as attached to this guy.

Baseball is over. It's on to 2019. Vegas has announced the Red Sox and Astros are co-favorites to win it next year. Of course, until the big free agents start falling into place.

Speaking of free agents, bookmark this page so you can keep up to date with all of the latest signings when free agency hits.

The World Series Game 4 ratings were down from last year, but the Fox Streaming services are seeing increases.

Still cannot believe the Mets.

Astros dogs! 😍😍


Shoutout to the woman from Austin who is now the fastest typer of the alphabet in the whole world!

No more baseball history segments, because all of the baseball history is just boring manager hirings sooooo...I guess this is where this ends. Bye.

I hate Boston mainly due to their fans. They are pretty insufferable. However, Boston put together a heck of a team that gelled and the "weak" part of the team, the bullpen, remained strong. Kudos to the Red Sox on being the 2018 Champs.

Agreed, Red Sox fans make me want to throw things. I wasn't feeling petty — just baseball-ed out for the year.

I took my son on a road trip to the northeast for 5 games in 5 days at 5 different stadiums.

Best Park: Camden competition

Funniest moment: yankee stadium, 2 teeanage girls, their dad and Derek Jeter

Best fan experience: Fenway...hands down the best experience. Sat on first base side and the whole section was conversational since we were obviously “not regulars”. Admitymy son was probably the only person younger than 30 yrs in any visible direction. Everyone around us spent the whole game trying to get him a ball from a player. By the 5th inning we had been moved up to the front row by everyone haggling their neighbors. I can’t stand sweet Caroline in any stadium but can respect at Fenway. My experience may have been unique but iwe both came away liking the Boston fan.
