The Rays’ infield was drawn in with Mookie Betts at third, and he scored on a ground ball to first anyway. Cody Bellinger had dislocated his right shoulder on Sunday night, and he homered anyway. Clayton Kershaw’s October reputation preceded him, and he excelled anyway.

October 20, 2020

Mookie Betts, meet The Babe. Betts was already doing a heck of a Babe Ruth impersonation before hitting his first home run of this postseason in the Dodgers' 8-3 win over the Rays in Game 1 of the World Series at Globe Life Field on Tuesday, part of an epic

Rays dress like cowboys before Game 1

The Rays may not be from Texas, but they're doing their best to make it feel like home. With the World Series taking place at Globe Life Field in Arlington this year, the Rays knew going full "Cowboy Up" was the best costume for the day. (Sorry, I guess that

Cody Bellinger, baseball's new meme god, dislocated his shoulder in NLCS Game 7 after celebrating a home run with his teammates. Because athletes are superheroes and not like us (who would be crying and scared to ever take the field again), he popped it back in and went back out

Right away, like he's on-air promoting some powerhouse team in the NCAA tournament, Dick Vitale begins rattling off reasons why his Rays shouldn't be taken lightly in the World Series. "This is no fluke, this team is legitimate," Vitale says excitedly over the phone from his home in Tampa. "They

Who has World Series edge at each position?

@mike_petriello
October 20, 2020

Sometimes, we do get the right teams in the World Series. The Rays were the American League's No. 1 seed, and they survived three rounds of playoff series to get to the Fall Classic. The Dodgers were the National League's top seed, and they're here, too. The two best teams

If you were surprised that Dodgers manager Dave Roberts let Julio Urías pitch the ninth inning of Game 7 on Sunday night with franchise saves leader Kenley Jansen warming up, so was Urías. “I would lie if I didn’t say it’s strange to me, especially knowing Kenley was out there,

@michaelsclair
October 20, 2020

Well, the secret is out: If you want to go to the World Series, you should employ Rays manager Kevin Cash. He's about as good of a guarantee that you're going to be playing late into the season as you can get. The skipper appeared in the 1989 Little League
