MONDAY

BBO–World Series-Astros-Excellence

The Houston Astros are off to the World Series for the fourth time in six seasons. It’s a remarkable show of staying power for the franchise, particularly in a baseball era that includes a 12-team playoff gauntlet. Yet the dichotomy of this generation of Astros will probably never go away. SENT: 700 words, photos.

TUESDAY

BBO—World Series-Harper vs. Trout

They both came up to the big leagues in the early 2010s as can’t miss kids, and the debate about who is better has lasted more than a decade. Some love Bryce Harper. Others say Mike Trout is better. It’s a close race: they’ve combined for five MVPs, 17 All-Star appearances and are both ultrarich after signing megadeals. But Harper is the first to play in a World Series and has his signature postseason moment after leading the Phillies with a huge Game 5 homer in the NLCS. By David Brandt. SENT: 800 words, photos.

WEDNESDAY

BBO–World Series-No Black Players

When the Philadelphia Phillies and Houston Astros meet for the World Series this week, no U.S.-born Black players are projected to be on the rosters. Only once since Jackie Robinson broke the Major League Baseball color barrier in 1947 has there been a World Series without at least one Black player. By Baseball Writer Ben Walker.

BBO—World Series-Phillies-Schwarber

PHILADELPHIA – Kyle Schwarber has Paul Bunyan strength and there’s almost something mythical about his home runs. He sets the tone from the leadoff spot and has become a bit of a cult figure in his first season with the Phillies. The Phillies may go as far as he takes them – and if his nearly 1,500 feet of home runs in the NLCS showed anything, he can take them deep into the postseason. By Dan Gelston.

THURSDAY

BBO—World Series Preview

HOUSTON — The Astros’ Justin Verlander has 244 wins and 3,198 strikeouts and is headed to his third Cy Young Award. Yet he is 0-6 in seven World Series starts heading into Friday’s opener against Philadelphia. By Baseball Writer Ronald Blum. UPCOMING: 800 words, photos, by 6 p.m.

BBO—World Series-Philly Fever

PHILADELPHIA – What a time in Philly sports! The Eagles are the only undefeated team in the NFL. The Union are a win away from playing for the MLS championship. But leading the sports renaissance in Philly are the Phillies, the baseball team that has everyone talking and every fan going wild. By Dan Gelston. UPCOMING: 750 words, photos.
