MLB: ALCS-Houston Astros at Tampa Bay Rays Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

In case you were kidnapped and held in an underground bunker over the weekend, let me break some good news to you: The Rays knocked off the Astros and are headed to the World Series!

They will play the Dodgers, who rallied to knock off the Braves 4-3 in Game 7 of the NLCS.

The World Series will begin on Tuesday. All games will be at 8 PM on Fox.

Neil Solandz on the Randy trade:

This was a little surprising, but Ji-Man Choi will be the first Korean position player to play in the World Series.

While Randy was great, let’s not forget the great work done by Charlie Morton.

This is fantastic:

Go Rays!
