Ben Lindbergh and Michael Baumann break down both championship series, starting with the Yankees’ comeback from an 0-2 deficit to take a 3-2 lead over the Astros (05:00), the resurgence of Aaron Judge and Gary Sánchez (08:00), the atmosphere at Yankee Stadium (15:45), misleading momentum (19:30), and the Astros’ issues on offense and in the bullpen (21:00). Then they discuss how the Dodgers have outplayed the Cubs en route to a 3-1 series lead (38:00) and how the Cubs saved themselves in Game 4 (43:30), and wrap up with a conversation about how postseason managing has evolved more quickly than some managers can handle (50:15).
