The B.O.A.R.D.: Let's review the postseason so far (from a taxi in Los Angeles traffic)

Each October, the MLB postseason belongs to someone or something. Whether it's the Rally Monkey in 2002, Daniel Murphy in 2015 or David Ross last year, October is always dominated by a particular force. With so much good baseball packed into one month, it's sometimes tough to follow all the madness, so we created the Baseball October Arbitrary Rankings Device (The B.O.A.R.D.) to keep track of it all.
With the Astros' electric Game 7 victory on Saturday night, the World Series presented by YouTube TV is set and ready to go with Game 1 on Tuesday night (7:30 p.m. ET air time/8 p.m. ET game time on FOX). We are already in Los Angeles to cover the proceedings and, even though L.A. is a five-hour flight from our offices in New York City, we had to bring the B.O.A.R.D. along with us.
With so many Astros making huge contributions in Games 6 and 7, it was hard to fit just five things on to the B.O.A.R.D. But, check out the video at the top of the page to see which Astros made the list and which Dodgers were able to stay on it.
And, oh yeah, we filmed it in the back of a taxi in L.A. traffic.
