World Series open thread, Game 1

Leave it to MLB to cede all decisions to Fox.

Here they are, in Tony Bennett’s hometown, and guess who’s singing the National Anthem? Last year’s “American Idol” winner, the one whose name no one knows. Idol, of course, is a Fox product.

MLB remains a Fox product through 2021. Can’t wait to listen to an 80-year-old Tim McCarver repeat himself between corny quips whilst Joe Buck rhapsodizes about the NFL.

I’m rooting for the Tigers, who will prevail in 7. Somehow, they’ll lose tonight, even with Verlander on the mound.
