20 in a row!

in 180 innings they have lead for 176 of them.

39HR for the Indians vs only 32 total runs against.

+102 run differential over 20 games.

includes an 11 game road win streak.

Ties the longest in AL history.

It's a hell of a run.

I will be rooting for them to win it all since my team was mathematically eliminated a few years ago.

Derek Jeter, the guy who gave half of Hollywood herpes, is proving to be a spineless coward/scumbag as a businessman too.

First MLB to take a knee.

I dig his statement on it.

A fan lost his nachos during a baseball game last night. Addison Russell, the Cubs player, emerged from the dugout a few innings later with a plate of nachos and delivered it to the fan.

Ratings from last year's world series are down 15%.

Must be all the anthem protests.

well lets be honest here, Dodgers vs Astros doesn't have the same appeal or fan base that an Indians vs Cubs World Series had, two teams that were combined for about 180 years of World Series futility.

I was being sarcastic. To my knowledge, only a single baseball player has knelt for the anthem.

It was more about how certain media outlets are trying to claim the NFL is dying because of anthem protests. They're ignoring that ratings for everything are down across the board thanks to cable cutting and more active lifestyles, among other things, and also don't take into account factors like the one you described.

NFL ratings are down 5%. Total TV ratings are down 8%. Clearly it's the anthem.

NFL ratings down less than prime time

Racism in the World Series.

Baseball is so popular (ha!), nobody cares.

But seriously, how is this a non-story? Because the offender isn't white? Because the person being mocked isn't black?

Because the world finally realized that sometimes cultures need to learn and grow instead of criticizing on another /s

By arguing you are appropriating Malcolm's culture, racist.

Or something.
