Game 1 of the World Series is tonight – Atlanta Braves versus the Houston Astros.
I am a lifelong Astros fan all the way back to seeing them at Colt Stadium in 1964 while the Astrodome was under construction. Though an Astros fan I’d rather see Atlanta win a well-played Series than see the Astros win a badly played one.
The photo is of Jose Altuve batting at (what I still call) Tiger Stadium in July 2017. I look forward to going to a game next year.
Baseball’s 2019 World Series starts a little later tonight. The favoured (and my favourite team) Houston Astros play the Washington Nationals. While I hope Houston wins I’d rather they lose a well-played Series than win a sloppy set of games.

I recently had the good fortune to attend a Tigers-Astros game. Although Jose Altuve – the best second baseman in the majors – went oh for four and the Astros lost 5-3, it was a decent, entertaining game and a very enjoyable evening.
