The Ringer’s Ben Lindbergh and Michael Baumann discuss Game 7 of the World Series, dwelling on the Dodgers’ lack of timely hitting, Yu Darvish’s Series struggles, the argument that Clayton Kershaw should have started Game 7 instead, and how the Astros-Dodgers battle stacks up historically. Then they talk about the effectiveness of (and backlash to) tanking, how hard it is to win titles, whether teams can still become dynasties in baseball today, and how the Astros and Dodgers set up for the future (spoiler: pretty well).
