A few months ago, the Astros and Dodgers squared off in a World Series for the ages, with Houston coming out on top in Game 7 thanks in large part to the dinger heroics of George Springer. Lest you thought the white-knuckle finish engendered some hard feelings, though, don't worry: When A.J. Hinch travels to San Diego next week for Springer's wedding, he'll be staying with none other than Dave Roberts.

The two spent five seasons together with the Padres, where Hinch worked in the scouting department and Roberts was a coach. So, with Hinch coming into town to watch his World Series MVP get married, he naturally had a place to stay.
"He's going to be in town for Springer's wedding," Roberts told the Los Angeles Times' Andy McCullough.
Of course, that good will only extends so far. When asked whether he'll get Springer a wedding gift, Roberts was having none of it: "He should be sending me a present," he said.
