Carter KieboomFree Agent
MONTREAL (AP) — Tim Raines started wearing the tricolor cap as a teen and proudly sported the Montreal Expos logo for years, all the way onto his Hall of Fame plaque.So no wonder who he'll cheer for when his old team — albeit now in Washington — plays in its first World Series, a half-century after the franchise debuted far away."I'm happy," Raines said in a phone conversation from Arizona. "Actually, I'm happy, even though it's not Montreal it's still a part of the Montreal franchise. Even though they're not the Expos — they are the Nationals, but they wouldn't have been the Nationals without the Expos.""So even though I never played there, I wasn't a part of the Nationals logo, but in actual speaking it's still the Expos franchise that has been moved to another site," he said.Romance bloomed in Parc Jarry in the north end of this French-speaking city in the spring of 1969 when its NL expansion team began play as the Expos.

Now this is a serious World Series throw-down.Gerrit Cole, Justin Verlander and Zack Greinke vs. Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg and Patrick Corbin — all of them All-Star starters, still pitching at their peak.It's a mound meeting that every fan can enjoy, the Houston Astros against the Washington Nationals.Capital hill, indeed."We've got the best pitcher in the world going. And then after that, we've got the best pitcher in the world going, too. And then after that, we've got the best pitcher in the world going, too," Astros third baseman Alex Bregman said. "It's going to be a lot of fun."Bregman and fellow MVP candidate Anthony Rendon certainly did their parts to make this the Year of the Home Run. And José Altuve lit up Minute Maid Park with his walk-off homer to beat the Yankees in the AL Championship Series.But the focus of this Fall Classic is right on the rotations. Houston opened as a 2-1 favorite at the Las Vegas sportsbooks.Cole is set to throw the first pitch on Tuesday n... [More]

WASHINGTON (AP) — Doing a little research ahead of the World Series, Washington Nationals second baseman Brian Dozier came across some numbers that made him feel OK about his team's long layoff."I saw a stat today where there's been 12 times where teams have had five or more days off going into the World Series. And you know what the record was? 6-6," Dozier said. "So it's not that big a deal."Baseball is a sport that is more of a daily grind than any other, with game followed by game followed by game for six months, so this stretch is rather unusual for the Nationals: They haven't played since finishing off a sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Championship Series at home last Tuesday — and they won't play until Game 1 of the Fall Classic in Houston next Tuesday.Washington's next opponent gets much less of a respite: The Astros finished off the New York Yankees in Game 6 of their AL Championship Series on Saturday night.The good news for the Nationals is their pitchers get ...

HOUSTON (AP) — A record-setting season by Savages in the Box ended with a string of strikeouts and another October bust for the New York Yankees.For the first time since the 1910s, the 27-time champions have gone through an entire calendar decade without making it to a World Series.An AL Championship Series of squandered chances ended when Aroldis Chapman allowed José Altuve's pennant-winning, two-run homer in the ninth inning Saturday night that gave the Houston Astros a 6-4 win and the pennant in six games."No matter how many games we won in the regular season or what else we did, the season's a failure," Aaron Judge said. "I just think about the missed opportunities."Altuve became only the second player to eliminate the Yankees in the postseason with a walk-off homer, the first since Bill Mazeroski's homer off Ralph Terry won Game 7 of the 1960 World Series for Pittsburgh."It will serve us well going forward when we get to the top of the mountain," Yankees manager Aaron Boone sai...

HOUSTON (AP) — Astros shutdown reliever Ryan Pressly reinjured his right knee recording an out on the only pitch he threw in Game 6 of the AL Championship Series but says he'll be ready for the World Series.Pressly came on with the bases loaded and two outs in the third inning Saturday night against the New York Yankees.After Didi Gregorius hit a soft dribbler on the first pitch, Pressly came off the mound and fielded the ball and was clearly in pain after planting his right leg while going toward the line. Pressly, basically dragging his right foot, met Gregorius in the baseline and tagged him out.Pressly, who grimaced as he went toward the dugout, had arthroscopic surgery on the same knee on Aug. 22 and returned Sept. 20."Just some scar tissue that broke off," he said. "It was bound to happen at some point, I just didn't think it was going to happen in the middle of that game. I'll be good and ready to go next week."Houston won 6-4 on Jose Altuve's ninth-inning homer. The Astros wi... [More]
