Despite two 100-win teams in the Fall Classic, both are claiming to be underdogs. We’re not buying it.

On Episode 224 of “Hittin’ Season,” hosts Justin Klugh & Liz Roscher talk about the upcoming Fall Classic between the Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros and whether either team can legitimately be considered “underdogs.”

Topics include:

  • The Phillies are dormant right now, but will soon awaken.
  • Baseball will soon be over for 2018, so enjoy your last week of baseball, gang!
  • The league does a terrible job at marketing its players.
  • Baseball needed an anti-hero (or heel for some) like Manny Machado... someone to root against.
  • Is it possible to have a World Series with no underdog?
  • The Red Sox and Astros are trying to portray themselves as such, but that’s hard to do when both teams won 100 games.
