You know, I think it’s high time we stopped worrying about television ratings for the World Series. Who cares anymore what the numbers look like? Baseball is a regional game where if you’re a casual fan, you’re not going to be as invested.

- Bryce Harper, whether we want to believe it or not, will always have some influence on decisions. How will he and the team get through this offseason ($)?
- Rhys Hoskins is going to play a big part of the team’s 2021 success, good or bad.
- Over at Baseball Prospectus ($), old friend Justin discuss the Phillies organization since David Montgomery left us.
- Gold Glove finalists were unveiled yesterday and, well, I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.
